What I'd do if I had to start again from scratch

I can't believe how far I've come since those early days when I decided to dive headfirst into entrepreneurship. 

It feels like a lifetime ago when I was fumbling through writing my first ebook, teaching myself how to build webpages, and trying to navigate the ever-changing online landscape.

But there's something magical about being a newbie, filled with boundless energy and the willingness to adapt and experiment. 

Today I'm answering a question I get asked all the time - what if I had to start again from scratch? 

What would I focus on? What lessons have I learned along the way that I would apply to starting again?

Keep it simple 

When starting a business from scratch, it's essential to focus on one platform at a time. Resist the urge to spread yourself too thin, and instead, give each platform the time and attention it deserves. 

Remember, building a successful foundation takes time, so don't rush the process. 

Connect with your audience. 

Fostering long-term relationships with your audience is crucial for success. Always prioritize meaningful content and genuine connection over gimmicks or short-term gains. 

When you genuinely care about your audience and their needs, you'll naturally build trust and credibility. 

Find the opportunities in underserved niches

In entrepreneurship, nothing is more satisfying than stumbling upon a hidden gem - an underserved market niche just waiting to be tapped.

When starting from scratch, focus on finding those unique opportunities where you can make a real difference (and some real money). 

Stay consistent 

Consistency is key when it comes to marketing your business. Keep showing up, sharing your message, and engaging with your audience. The more consistent you are, the more likely you are to see the growth and success you've been dreaming of.

I never imagined how much the world of entrepreneurship would evolve when I started. 

If I had to start from scratch today, I'd do things differently for sure, but one thing remains the same: the journey will always be unpredictable and full of surprises.

The best part about being new is that you can be nimble. You can jump on new technology or ideas to design a business that truly works for you. So enjoy the ride! 

Listen to today's podcast episode to learn:

  • What I'd do today to get started from square one
  • The importance of focusing on the core principles that drive business success
  • To explore untapped niches to find the best opportunities for you
  • How consistent marketing will propel your business forward
  • The ins and outs of making money early on and how to focus on income-producing activities

When you're starting out, it can be easy to get pulled off course or have your confidence knocked - it can be lonely. 

That's why surrounding yourself with the right people is so important - positive, abundance-minded, supportive people with similar dreams. 

It wasn't until I found groups of other entrepreneurs that I could start to see what was possible or build my vision for my dream life.  

So if this is you right now, whatever stage of business you're at, you need to see it to believe it. You need to surround yourself with people like you, talking normally about business, money, and goals.
