So you want to be a business owner. You arrive at such a conclusion after much thought and consideration of how practical it must be to be your own boss. You work at your own pace and your idea of time is relative to how much you want to accomplish given a certain period of time. You give yourself a set of responsibilities you have created for yourself conveniently. In exchange for all these perks, you reward yourself with the prospect of turning in a profit for selling something to someone or rendering service to someone for a price you have decided to peg on such.
You’ve got the benefits part down pat. How about that part dealing with what it takes to be a really good business owner with an idea, the capital, and a business plan to make all of the above plausible? Have you got one? And yes, being a business owner is a full-time career and a really serious one. Such a career choice isn’t one you pick out randomly from a whimsical wish list.
You may seek vocational guidance from people around you equipped with the adequate experience and wisdom to help you through. They may provide you insights to help you enjoy the best of both worlds: financial independence and fulfillment. Whatever advice you get will always require you to go through something that enables enlightenment. It’s the Through System of career choice.
People actually start out knowing what they like to do until something gets in the way and they begin to have doubts. Doubts behave like thick fog smothering your ship as you sail towards the shores of a goal you have in mind. You simply have to find a way to get a clear view of what’s all around you. You can try to change them if you like. The important thing is you need to look through whatever obstacles there are before you so that you can think of the next thing to do.
You see what lies ahead of you. It is your desire to go through that propels you to think of ways to overcome all hindrances to your strategy. This is the configuration part of the process. That stage where you behave like any tech would when tweaking the PBX that runs your brain’s informational communication system. You come up with a main idea together with a host of other supporting thoughts and concepts central to the idea. You call it your plan of action.
You go back momentarily to what you initially thought you’d like to be: a business owner. Now equipped with an idea and a plan, all you need to do now is to go through with your plan of action. It’s time to look for financial capability. If you haven’t got enough yet, maybe you can work towards getting some by getting a day job in the meantime. You need to save up for that long-term plan. Keep sticking to that goal. Obsess along the thought: Idea + Capital = Business!
The time is ripe for you to execute what you’ve been planning all this time. You are now open for business so we all go back to a bit of your original equation about being your own boss (with some minor revisions here and there, of course). You work at your own pace and your idea of time is dependent on as much productivity you want to accomplish with the least amount of time. You give yourself a set of responsibilities your business has created for you. In exchange for all these hard work, you reward yourself with the prospect of turning in a profit for selling something to someone at a price you have decided to peg on such. You happen to be good at it and the market responds positively to what you offer.
You do all of the above consistently and go back over and over again to the same Through System until it becomes you. The system follows you through whichever way you decide to go because now you know — you’ve made the best career choice!
