Business and Bike Riding
Being a business owner is a lot like learning to ride a bike. You get up, you fall down. You get up again and you get going with speed and then inevitably fall a few more times. However, once you master it, it is pretty certain that you won’t continue to fall except for within circumstances that are out of your control.
I cannot tell you how many times I have had the proverbial marks from falling down multiple times while getting my business to where it currently is. The amount of times I felt like a failure are honestly something I could not count.
Now, my business has grown into something I would have never thought possible with having expanded throughout California and Colorado.
Just like when you learn to ride a bike, having someone help you, hey, even training wheels can set you off in the right direction. One of the most valuable lessons I learned was that asking for help and guidance is not only key to having success but it sets you on a path of stability.
Don’t be afraid my friends! The next time you feel at a loss or like you’re just not in control of your business, ask for help. Get some training, get support and most importantly, believe in YOUR capabilities. That is when you will master your craft, your business and really start to take off.
