There Has Never Been a Better Time to Start a Business
Posted on: Friday, March 19, 2010

Many apologies to everyone who thought we sent out too many emails about my last workshop on March 7th. You were right. We did. We had just invested in new software for our mailing list and were experimenting with it. We did not quite realise what we had programmed it to do. We won’t do it again. 
My next event is a talk on Growing Your Business Through Difficult Times at The Vitality Show at Earl’s Court on March 19th at 5 pm.
There Has Never Been a Better Time to Start a Business
I have been keynote speaking to, chatting to and meeting with many entrepreneurs and portfolio workers in the last few weeks.
It has been uplifting and exhilarating. Many are finding it very hard to get their new businesses off the ground. Nevertheless they are finding the challenge very exciting and are willing to work as hard as they can in order to make things happen.
There has never been a better time for people to consider starting their own business or working on their own and building a portfolio career.
Entrepreneurs and Portfolio Workers are Brave People
All entrepreneurs and people who work on their own are very brave and that isn’t acknowledged often enough by the media and the general public.
It takes a lot of courage to give up a regular paycheck especially when you have rent to pay or a mortgage and a family. When you work on your own or in a small business, you can never be sure when the money will arrive to pay all your bills and pay yourself.  And in today’s volatile trading climate, money is going round slower than ever before.
Nevertheless, many of these brave souls are recognising that this is a good time for them to have a go at making their dreams come true.
Startup Costs Have Come Right Down
The costs of starting a new enterprise are now very low. Every office facility can now be outsourced (which has already brought great opportunities to many invidividuals and small businesses) and technology is available at very low prices to experiment with all the systems that you will need to get your enterprise going.
Because we are in a time of such major change there are huge opportunities for creative people. All of us now want to invest our purchases with meaning. We are moving away from mass-produced items and we want to spend our money on products that we need (which we want to source at as low a cost as possible) and products and services that we can choose because they delight us.
Entrepreneurs starting new businesses are exploring and creating ideas and ways of making money that have never existed before. 
All times of chaos bring opportunity.
It’s Important To Enjoy Your Life as Much as you Can
When you are spending your time doing what you enjoy, it doesn’t always matter if you are not making as much money as you did in the past. Of course we would all like to have enough money coming in every week and every month that we don’t want to have to think about it all the time. But nevertheless if you are one of those fortunate people who wakes up and looks forward to the day that can certainly be a great part of the reward itself.
Experienced entrepreneurs are often thrilled to sell out. But all of them know that the excitements and the challenges that they met and overcame on the journey were just as important and just as much fun as the final thrill of finding the right buyer for their business.
