Progress Chelsea from Denmark and I've been listening to the show for a couple of years. I like the idea of starting a business, but I worry that it will be hit his head. I don't mean the technical or operational aspects I just need some of the organization and strategy. Long story short, I think I'm better at working for others than I am at working for myself. I appreciate the accountability of a team and a boss who gives me direction that guy said, though, I see. the idea of having a business, and I understand how important it is to diversify my income. Do you have the advice or someone like me. What a great question, thank you so much Chelsea, I'm sure, you're speaking for a lot of listeners out there so short answer.
my advice? Is don't ever think it? You know. Just remember: you're not quitting your job tomorrow and becoming a full time business owner you not to make this huge decision. You know you're learning to diversify your income, as you said, and so the whole goal is to experiment in a low risk. No pressure way. I bet a lot of our Allister's would say I also like the accountability of a team and a boss. You know who gives me direction, but you know Many of our listeners are also successful and running aside business, even if they feel that way, because assisted different experience, different process some and can be really fun. We haven't done it before and I would encourage you to kind of step into it without you know, over thinking you aren't! You might be surprised to find that you are better at the organization and strategy that you think, or you might just fine- you improve over time. You know like most people do so. I would not let this initial impression holds you back from moving forward with an idea go forth with confidence, not least the
thence to explore further. Let us know how goes Chelsea listeners just reminded that there is Something you can do is a project for everyone. I really do believe that everyone can find a way to create a new source of income with putting their job, therefore providing themselves with more options. That's what it's all about economic security, freedom. You know the chance to make something for yourself and that's why I make this pact s bore you every day, so thank you pertaining in sight of souls. Go back ask questions if you have something to contribute, and otherwise I hope, you're doing well taking care of yourself during this holiday season, and you know I'll be back tomorrow.
