Today I want to talk about the mistakes that surely every digital entrepreneur has made when starting a new project. Some apply to all kinds of entrepreneurship, however, today we are going to focus on digital entrepreneurs, their experiences and their advice to avoid them and be able to get rid of unfortunate experiences.
Entrepreneurship is a lonely path with a lot of work and little time off, so asking for help from those closest to you can be a great idea. But, the rules of the game must be well set, since feelings are harder to control with them and in moments where important decisions must be made, or work must be held accountable, it is important to know how to communicate in an optimal working way.
The most common consequences of not doing so are:
What does financial freedom mean? Having enough savings, investments, cash on hand to be able to do the things we want to do, whether in our businesses or in our personal lives.
Financial freedom is quality of life for our families and ourselves. Is to have healthy finances (debt free) in our businesses. It means that the money is working for us, not us for it.
Imagine everything you could do in your business if instead of looking for clients to pay the bills, whether personal or from your business, you could do what you like, give the best customer service in anything you do because you know that the sale is going to happen anyway, since you don't have the need to urgently pay certain bills, which often forces to almost give away your products or services to achieve quick income so that you can get out of the financial problem.
Let's not go any further, let's analyze what happened and continues to happen unfortunately, with many businesses that have had to close because they...
March 2020 looks so close and at the same time so far depends on the perspective from which we see it.
If we asked a mom with young children who used to work from home and her husband used to go to the office every day, imagine what she feels, a total total change in her life!!
Her routine was getting up, getting her little ones ready, taking them to school, going home and getting to work, organizing her activities while her husband left for work early. In the afternoon she used to go to pick up her children and perhaps returned to prepare dinner for everyone, play with the little ones, wait for Dad to have dinner together and put the kids to sleep.
And from one day to the next, everything changed! The children cannot go to school, the husband has to work from home, she continues to have the same job, with high demands, projects to finish, but now she has to juggle to be able to attend the young children who don't entertain themselves, her husband cannot entertain them because...
We would have never imagined that we would have to get on a really long waiting line to get into the grocery store and that when we could finally enter we would find out that there are no more essential things like meat, eggs, vegetables, toilet paper, etc. because a lot of people panicked and made scary purchases. We did not imagine that overnight we would be locked up at home, that all the places we used to go would be closed.
No dining in our favorite restaurant, we can't go to the movies, to the theater, to an open-air concert, schools are closed, kids at home, our spring and summer vacations cancelled, and the news tell us that now that we can't go anywhere If we do not wear a mask and we must also be a meter and a half away from people, we cannot see our family, our parents, our uncles, our close friends. And what about the economy, markets to the ground, closed companies, people without jobs, empty streets, etc. etc.
Ufff just thinking about everything we lost from one moment...
There’s a saying that goes: “the perfect is the enemy of the good”. When we start a new project we want everything to turn out perfect. This is based on the need to perpetuate an image that projects excellence, superiority and perfection and within all this, perfectionism is evident, however, this is one of the main causes that make us feel so stressed, anxious or dissatisfied sometimes. Many times, the search for perfection paralyzes our progress.
It’s very difficult for a new development, be it a product or service, to be perfect. It’s practically impossible for something to turn out perfect the very first time, no matter how much we planned for it.
If we look for perfection above all, some new thing will always come up that will delay us because everything is able to be perfected, everything will turn into an excuse for not launching our projects. It’s also not about jumping into an adventure without considering...
