I’d wish I knew before starting my business – the Comeback

Things I Wish I Knew Before I Started My Own Business, but I'm here to share the good, bad, and evil with you.

THE COMEBACK…

Read the previous article…

By 2010 I decided it was timeย to move on because I had kids and a family, and I was NOT going to let this BREAK ME!

I’m sure they were also going through similar situations due to the economy, but to be so brutal, disrespectful, vicious, hateful & not care or understand my situation was beyond disbelief!

They didn’t care that

  1. My family was depending on me
  2. That 10 other employees & their families were also depending on me
  3. I also knew they were depending on me; and…

God knows I was doing my best to make things right!

But…

I couldn’t because I had no more money, no more resources, the economy was so bad that I couldn’t do anything more!

Unfortunately, after my Dad passed I no longer gave a S*** ๐Ÿ’ฉ๐Ÿ˜ข and had no choice but to file for Bankruptcy and Closed my Doors!ย 

I ‘threw in the towel’ I was sad,ย  felt like a total failure, defeated, depressed, and just TIRED!!!

As an Entrepreneur, human being, woman, mom, wife – I don’t wish this on ANYONE!

Therefore it’s so important to build a business that will hopefully prevent some of these issues that I went through!

Take away from my experience…

  • Have a plan
  • Make sure you have enough resources to cover unexpected expenses
  • That your staff is able to operate your business when unforeseen circumstances occur
  • Don’t put all your “eggs all in one basket”
  • It’s ok to close down if you’re unable to operate your business
  • No one will care when “shit hits the fan”
  • You will be responsible and will have to take and accept the blame for everything
  • Be prepared for the worst as much as possible; economy, pandemics, illnesses, ups/downs, etc…

So regardless of the type of business you decide to start you will need to have:

  • Resources
  • Thick skin
  • Ready to work 24/7
  • Prepared to learn

Be ready to take on all the ‘good, bad, and evil’ that comes with the business world!

Finally, I want to invite you to join me and let me help you AVOID all the same mistakes I made in my business.

Let me help you create the right business foundation so that you can hopefully avoid these same pains and heartaches…

Because – Planning & Development is key!

If my father taught me anything in this world – that was to Never Give Up!

So, after a few months/years of therapy, counseling, and letting the storm pass, I decided to get up and #BossUpandRise ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ”ฅ

I dusted myself off and went back ๐Ÿ”™ to the drawing board!

Looking back I don’t regret ANYTHING, but wished I could have done better, been better, prepared better, and hopefully avoid all these problems.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have anyone to help me, didn’t have a “crystal ball” and had no clue all these problems were going to arise, but like they say “God does things for a REASON!”

I NOW appreciate the experience because;

1๏ธโƒฃ I understand that God does things for a reason.ย  (This experience was necessary for me to learn & understand that we must prepare for the future & for ‘unforeseen circumstances, but also take care of ourselves before being able to take care of others.)

2๏ธโƒฃ It helped me so that I can help others AVOID these same struggles and challenges, but more importantly, help them prepare for the future and give back through my free resources, training, and development!

3๏ธโƒฃI’m also the person I am today because of the struggles and challenges; I’m happier, less stressed, enjoy my family, and my business and I’m not working around the clock, or worried about overhead.

Share+Learn+Grow+Prepare+Plan for the Future and continue to Help Others!โ„ข๏ธ

I learned that we all make mistakes, we are human, and everyone s*** stinks, but we can all learn from them & help others AVOID these same mistakes.๐Ÿ™

Finally – we have 2 Choices…

Get up #BossUpandRise or Stay down and be defeated!

Regardless of the circumstances #KeepOnGoing

๐Ÿšจ#TheRiseTheFallTheComeback @theceohustler โ„ข๏ธ๐Ÿšจ

I invite you again to join any of my programs – I will teach you everything that I’ve learned “Good, Bad, Evil” and help you AVOID the same entrepreneur struggles I went through.
