What is the Single Greatest Time Waster?
The main reason why people who are looking at starting their own business waste time is because they think that they have to wait until everything is just right before they commence. There is no ‘just right’ time to go into business. If you don’t have the resources to start, you could be doing your market research and analysing your competition in the meantime. You could also be educating yourself on the products that you would like to sell, or reading up on the skills needed to become a good salesperson. It is important that you begin with whatever resources you have at the time, or you face the risk of never getting started. There are many inexpensive ways to test-run your idea – you don’t have to outlay a lot of money to get an clue as to whether or not you are likely to succeed. Just put your idea to paper, work out a simply way of trialing your idea, and give it a go.
