NEW YORK, NY, December 19, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- 2014 is the year of the entrepreneur. From the fashion world to the high-tech sector to the health and wellness universe, more and more people are choosing to become self-employed. Building a business is challenging. Building a business while still working a full-time job? That can drive a sane person crazy. Oftentimes, new entrepreneurs with great ideas lose motivation, because they don't know where to start or how to manage their time—especially when they've got precious few hours to make their dream happen after their regular 9 to 5 job.---
Certified professional business leadership, life coach and motivational speaker, Kelly Lynn Adams, has been working with women for four years to help them create successful and profitable businesses built on their personal passions. Adams is sharing five tips to put you on the right track and give you the inspiration needed to launch a business with ease in the New Year, while still holding down a full-time job!
1. Manage Your Mindset.
According to Adams, your mindset can either make or break you. Choosing how you perceive your circumstances, your thoughts, and what words to speak and what actions to take on a daily basis can make a huge difference. If you are working a full-time job, but want to turn your passion into your full-time moneymaker, then challenge yourself to think of your day job as your "secret angel investor." An investor who is helping to fund your dream!
2. Create a Clear 90-Day Business Plan.
Identify clearly and answer the following questions: What are your passions? Who do you want to work with? Where does your ideal client like to shop and hang out? How much money do you want to make and by when? Have you crunched the numbers and created an exit strategy for when you want to leave your job? What do you offer and at what price point? Creating a simple 90-day business plan, that is no longer than two pages, will help you gain the business clarity needed in order to start and build a successful business.
3. Ask for Help or Outsource.
Asking for help can feel very vulnerable, but it's necessary to speak up when starting your business. Entrepreneurs sometimes think they have to do it all. Not true! You will always need help. The most successful entrepreneurs have teams behind them. Where in your life and/or business do you need help? Should you hire an assistant or intern, find a cleaning person to help around the house or get a babysitter once a week? Do it.
4. Schedule "Me" Time.
Self-care is a MUST when building a business. You are your own best asset and if you are not taking care of yourself, then you are not an asset to anyone. Building a business while working a full-time job can be daunting. You can easily get burned out if you are putting yourself last. Do at least one thing you love on a daily basis. This does not have to require a lot of time or money; in fact, it can be as simple as taking three deep and conscious breaths during your busy day. Do more of whatever fills you up, makes you happy and brings you joy. This is one of the most important tips you can implement in your life.
5. The Fortune is in The Follow Up.
Research shows it takes between five to twelve follow-ups to finalize 80% of sales. How many times are you following up with past, present and future clients? Creating a follow-up system in order to keep you organized with your follow-up activities is key. Whether you use a simple excel spreadsheet, calendar reminders or a monthly filing system method, creating a follow-up system for your business is going to yield big results.
With these five tips, new entrepreneurs can welcome the excitement of a new year and new opportunities with ease. Launching a new business is never easy, but having the tools to keep you on the right track can make all the difference, when you're balancing a full-time job with building your dream job after hours.
