Moving from Idea to Business

March 13, 2017 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

- Free

We would love your feedback from this event:

People usually have a fear of doing new things. They tend to stay inside the box. People are afraid of making a change, following their dreams. People are afraid of failure – once we break through the fear of failure, or fear of success, then everything becomes as easy as hot knife through butter. You then wake up every day, happy. 100% satisfaction of knowing you have broken through these fears.

What are your fears? What or who is stopping you? What’s the voice in your head telling you? “You’ll fail” “Business is not for you” “Money is evil” “You need a paycheque to survive” … but what is your reality?

Your reality is living on credit cards
Your salary is finished before the bills are paid
Your salary is finished before the month is up

I am not telling you to quit your job, I am just asking you to visualize another option for your life. This could be:
self employment, part-time, full-time, running a home based business or running an online business.

Once you know how, it is easy to get from the negative self talk or a reality you are not happy with to living a life where obstacles are seen as opportunities for growth and success.

Becoming an entrepreneur is part of living life in abundance whereby you can achieve your financial goals.
