Your business instinct
How many of you have that deep rooted nagging feeling that you absolutely have to start your business?Sometimes I let doubt get in my way. I`m 24 year-old student who has had a bad past with credit (like many college students do). It has hurt me, but I believe that some lessons are best learned by experience. I came up with the idea of my business while in the heart of my credit reconstruction. Now, I`m trying to rebuild my financial life, and I`m starting a business?I don`t know how it works for you all, but my nervous feelings about whether or not I can handle starting a business are always overcome by the feelings that I am sitting on an unbelievable idea. I don`t wake up EVERY morning with a killer instince for competition and thick resilient skin for rejection... however, my thirst for accomplishment keeps me overcoming enough of my difficulty to try try try. I guess what I`m saying is this; when all is said and done, do you feel that your ambition and belief in your business supercede any of the fears that come associated with starting a business? I`ve had many weeks of eating plain pasta and cereal, living a life of sacrifice while trying to start my business. Now that it`s started, I make enough money to live, be we`re growing.. The satisfaction at the end of the tunnel is not about making a lot of money for me, but it`s about the opportunity to say "I did it!". It`s the feeling of knowing that I made something out of nearly nothing, and something that is impressive.
