Welcome Back…If you’ve been thinking about starting your own business, going out on your own, and want to stop working for someone else only to help them reach their goals, I see you, and I totally understand. I’ve been in your shoes. I know how uneasy and stressful a decision like this can be. You might be passionate about an idea or eager for financial independence, but how do you know if you are truly prepared? Let’s explore the five key signs I believe you should have that indicate you are ready to take the entrepreneurial leap.


The first sign is your passion and purpose. Starting a business should be driven by more than just financial gain. True entrepreneurs are often guided by a deep passion for the product or the service they offer. They are on a mission to make a difference. Ask yourself why you want to start this business. What differences are you hoping to make in your customer's lives? When you find yourself waking up every day excited about your venture, it’s a strong indicator that you’re ready to start your own business.


Sign number two is financial stability. Starting a business comes with financial risks. To ensure you are ready, you need to have your finances in order. This means having an emergency fund, a clear understanding of your personal and business expenses, and a plan to support yourself during your startup phase. Are you willing and able to take the risks of owning your own business? As a CPA, I can’t emphasize enough the importance of being financially prepared. It is also essential to ask yourself if the business you want to start is something people want, need, and are willing to pay for.


Sign number three is resilience. Entrepreneurship often involves setbacks and challenges. If you’re able to bounce back from failures and setbacks with determination and a positive attitude, you’re on the right track. Building resilience is often one of the areas I work with my clients on. You need to strengthen your emotional resilience so that you are able to take on anything that may come up in your entrepreneurial journey. Are you ready to make sacrifices for your business? If you ask any entrepreneur if they were able to start and run their business like they initially thought or planned, I’m sure you’ll hear many different stories, and most will likely say they were able to build resilience and the path to their success helped them become the resilient, well-rounded business owner they currently are.


Sign number four is industry knowledge. Being an expert in your field is crucial. If you’ve spent years building your skills and have a deep understanding of your industry, you’re well-positioned for success. If you are still learning, you may want to consider gaining more experience and knowledge before diving in or have a plan to continue gaining the knowledge you’ll need. Also, keep in mind that in most cases, you only need to be a few steps ahead of your customers to help them reach the success they are aiming to achieve.


And, lastly, number five, having a support system. It is essential for you to surround yourself with the right people. A strong support system, including a mentor, advisor, business and life coach, and a network of like-minded individuals, can make a world of difference in your journey as an entrepreneur. As a certified life coach myself, I encourage you to build your support network intentionally. I see firsthand how important business and life coaching benefits my clients.


To recap, the five signs I covered in this podcast to know if you are ready to start your own business are passion, financial stability, resilience, industry knowledge, and a robust support system. If you find you’ve covered all of these, you’re in a strong position to make your entrepreneurial dreams a reality.
