To be able to manage and build your business you have to dig deep within yourself. Recently, we came across a Forbes article that spoke about Billie Whitehead’s, WearableX’s CEO and Founder, experience as an entrepreneur.
We took some highlights from her article as they applied to our hardworking FP Group agents.
Age is irrelevant. Some people are able to grab ahold of life and demand what they want in their 20s. Others, don’t find their passion until their 50s. Neither one is right or wrong, but it is up to you to make the first step.
Don’t avoid hard work. There will be challenges, hardships, and obstacles in every new career change. “The only way to break through the resistance [is] to face it head on.” If you don’t face it, you’ll miss out on the opportunity for greatness.
Find something that inspires you. Once you find it, let it breathe life into every venture, business or otherwise, that you do. Whether you find passion in building your business for an unlimited income, your family, or helping others—let it fuel you.
Impossible is a poor excuse. There are people just like you in various journeys of life. There are those that are single moms, retired agents, and more—yet they make it. It isn’t impossible for you either—it’s just harder than you’d like it to be.
There will be setbacks. There will be times when you feel like you’ve conquered the world. And then, something will happen. Maybe it’s a string of rejections or a day comes around that nothing seems to go your way. It might feel like an emotional rollercoaster at times. However, it is important to remember that the destination is sweeter than any setback is bitter.
Now, is the time to build your business!
