This Expert Insight Interview discusses:

  • The reason this is the best time in history to become an entrepreneur
  • How to create your own business the right way


Maybe many people instinctively think they should ditch their nine-to-five jobs, but they don’t feel secure or confident enough to do it. Aside from this, people don’t understand that success in business, just like any endeavor, requires the proper training.

Starting a successful business has one of the highest failure rates, and yet we seem to think we can just leap in and do it. So, there’s a lot of uncertainty about what to do, but also real fears related to one’s financial position and the ability to do what one wants. Both of these fears can be addressed separately.

Best Time Ever

There has never been a better time in human history to start your own business than right now. Regardless of climate or what is going on with the economy, there are so many different ways you can make money running your own business.

We have access to global markets now in a way that we never had before. The trouble is that, when it comes to most things to do with work, starting your own business included, we’re pretty bad at going out and gathering the information and knowledge we need.

Taking It Step-by-Step

Many people start their business after receiving some encouragement from friends and family, and they jump straight in. Unfortunately, they are then confronted with so many things that they weren’t expecting in most cases.

Amongst all of the many things that you could be doing, there is a step-by-step protocol that you should be going through. This not everything needs to be addressed right away. Instead, the step-by-step approach allows you to prioritize things accordingly and will enable you to optimally grow your business from the ground up.
