Wouldn’t you rather own your business outright?
How much money have you lost in the past on your brilliant ideas?
The typical startup.
We got a brilliant idea. This idea will be worth millions!
This idea or invention is better than the invention of sliced bread.
So, of course, I should go all in! right?
Well, that’s the typical mindset of an entrepreneur. But because we have a brilliant idea. We shouldn’t pull out the credit cards and max them out. As a matter of fact, that was my issue early on in my entrepreneur journey. I would go all-in max out every single card I had. I would even apply for new credit cards because I thought. “It’s OK” my business will start making money and I’ll pay all these cards back, sooner or later. Well not exactly. Because I had the idea that didn’t mean that my business idea would take off. I know you’re thinking. “Well that’s you bud, but I have a degree in this or that”. But? What if you lose it all? What if you even bring people along with you and them to go all in. And they lose their life savings along with you. Well, I’m sorry but the statistics are right. Not all business ideas we’re created equal!
According to Bloomberg, 8 out of 10 entrepreneurs who start businesses fail within the first 18 months. A whopping 80% crash and burn. source
In 2015/2016 Global Entrepreneurship Report published by Babson College and several other organizations, over half of discontinued businesses halted operations because of lack of profits or financial funding. Source
See “Lack of Profits or Financial funding”. Don’t get me wrong I’m not trying to be negative Natalie here but let’s face it. Going into debt to start your business is not the way to go! Trust me I’ve been there done that, got the t-shirt. I have invested thousands over the years into my business to watch it go down the drain several times. Even after years of trying to recover from my wounds I still went into debt again to try and launch my businesses. Until one day after hearing some amazing advice from a man who I respect and lesson too. Dave Ramsey, said, “The borrow is a slave to the lender even in Business”! Those words hit home for me. After hearing his advice I made the decision to never go into debt to start my own business. I will cash flow my way to success. Finding a way to start from scratch. Work extra jobs, overtime at work to make sure that I don’t go into debt to follow my dream of “True Lifestyle Freedom”.
Think about it. For one second…
How would you feel if you started your business from scratch? Own your business where you call the shots and not some credit card company. I challenge you to find a way to start from scratch and not go into debt to make your dreams come true. Plus isn’t that what we want as entrepreneurs? Don’t know about you. I want “True financial freedom” from the bondage of a boring 9 to 5 and from the credit card companies too. I don’t want to trade bosses. From boss at work to some creditor who is calling me and harassing me to pay them back. Forget it, that ship has sailed and I have a new way of doing business. That means “Patients” yes “patients” that’s all it takes to start and grow a business from scratch and one that has no debt! Imagine having your business profitable and debt-free! You would have a freedom lifestyle.
