Possibly the first and most important thought process to go through before starting any new venture, business, or change. Why? Get to the why
Why do you want to own a business? What do you want to get out of the business? Why is this change important to you? What will it enable for you?
What if you had an extra $100 in your pocket each month? What if you had an extra $500 to pay off debt? What if you had an extra $2,000 to afford a 2nd home? How much happiness would that bring you. What if you had an extra $4,000 to have a personal assistant? And that assistant would handle all the remedial day to day tasks of life and business for you automatically.
What then would you be able to do with your time and resources?
Once you’ve figured out the why, then find out your purpose and passion.
