business start upsI spent the first twenty five years of my career being fairly predictable.

I followed the same routine with each position I held and only varied my behavior based on the company’s rules and regs. Like a pair of slippers you carried around since you were 13 or so, that routine became part of who I was. It was like brushing my teeth or combing my hair. I didn’t give it a second thought. As long as it went according to Hoyle, I was happy.

Then…………….. (dramatic pause here)……………I done become a bonafide entrepreneur.

Guess what?

No frame of reference.

I tried behaving the way I did in my nine-to-five but that only heightened  my anxiety level.

It took awhile but it  dawned on me that I was my own gatekeeper. I decided when to start and when to stop. If I wanted to phone it in for a few days, I could. There was no one keeping track of when I showed up or when I left or how much I accomplished. That was entirely up to me.

Yikes.

I discovered the main difference between being a successful entrepreneur and being so-so!

If you’re going to be successful you have to take a heavy, dark, magic marker and cross through every reference to the word “excuse.”

Ever feel like you’ve been dropped about ten feet onto a concrete pad?

All of this points to one really important word.

The word is MINDSET.

I see a lot of people with a lot of great ideas, chock full of passion and enthusiasm implode because being your own boss is hard work.

Why?

Remember the old saying”If it was easy anyone could do it?”

I’ll work with you to help you establish the mindset that will go a long way towards your success as an entrepreneur.
