Starting Your First Business
There is a way to build a business you love and a life you love – and for the two things to fit together like perfect puzzle pieces. You may be thinking about the next step after retirement, planning to start your first business, or looking for your next venture following a successful acquisition. These life-saving tips and personal accounts from Leslie can help you build your business around you instead of tying your life around it.
According to Leslie, we do business with those we trust and like. Being authentic with her followers on social media has been a primary key to her success. She knows that her products and services are available from many other sources. So, she is not focusing solely on promoting them on social media. Nonetheless, her transparency makes her stand out. It makes her relatable when she shares the good, bad, and ugly about herself, her business, and her family.
Revisiting Your Goals Now and Then
Cliche as it may sound, doing what you love starts with actually doing it. It is not uncommon for entrepreneurs to focus on what they have always worked in or what brings in the maximum profit. Is your business idea that important to you? Are you dedicated to it? Are your business goals aligned with who you are and how you want to live? These are the questions you may want to consider in this regard. Likewise, Leslie represents her identity and her affiliation through her brand. Her mindset is the same as that of every other person except that she has chosen to believe that she is the person God says she is. Plus, she strives to let that radiance shine through in everything she does.
Having a good work-life balance requires more than one person at the helm. You will have a lot of work to do when you are just getting started. As well as improving your efficiency as a business owner, outsourcing can also help you lead a more enjoyable lifestyle (is that not what we are all looking for?). Therefore, build your business with the intention of outsourcing.
The Beginning is Always Tough
It was not always all sunshine and roses for Leslie. As an employee of Corporate America, she climbed the corporate ladder for 18 years. Unknown to her, this was the beginning of her desire to own her own business. At that time, she did not know what was beyond a 9 to 5 job for her. However, she always knew that there was more to life for her than just doing monotonous jobs.
Change in Leslie’s Viewpoint
She changed her viewpoint on working for someone in 2013. In her absence due to medical reasons, she lost her job. It was not her first dismissal. It was her fourth. Although she usually got her job back after leaving, this time, it was somewhat different. Her intuition told her that it was about time that she needed to make some life adjustments and start her own thing. During that time, she prayed to God to never allow any other person to dictate how much she makes. Then there were also those times when she had problems keeping her credit-score nice and high. However, with the guidance of her father and a sincere friend, she soon managed to come through that.
Ultimately, it all boils down to the point where having a business you care about means that the culture there should be ethically justified. Hence, finally allowing you to do stuff that aligns with your passion. Regardless of how we measure it, the culture of the workplace greatly influences our happiness at work. Perhaps it can be a good starting point to chase that work-life balance.
