I have been thinking about starting a business lately.
I don’t know exactly what I would do, but I’ve been talking with a lot of my friends about it. I have a friend in Seattle who owns company called We Like To Move It Move It, and we just had a really long conversation about it. We went over a lot of different things like the things he likes about it, and the things he doesn’t like about it.
He also told me I should talk to five or six more entrepreneurs and see what it’s like having a business where I live out here in the middle of nowhere on the island.
My friend told me that he would never go back to working for wages again. He told me his life is totally changed in that he would never go back.
I was like “geez, how much money are you making?”
“Do you really want to know?” he asked. I usually don’t brag and I usually don’t discuss these things, but I’d love to give a future entrepreneur motivation that she could use…”
He told me that his new company was bringing in over $20,000 a month, and that he had 85% profit margin. Then he showed me screenshots of his financials for the third and fourth month of his business being in operation… I was totally blown away. I mean I know business owners make more money than people that work as employees, but this was tremendous.
At $20,000 a month, he must be bringing in at least $240,000 a year. I don’t know about you but for me this be life-changing money.
He went on to explain that as soon as he had a little bit of money (he said five grand) that it was even easier to make more money.
We talked about a lot of other stuff to yes me if there is any colleges in the area that offer business classes. I told him that there wasn’t. So then he suggested that I check out all the classes that are on udemy.com, he said there’s a ton of them. I’ll have to do that when I’m done writing here.
He also said that if I wanted to start a business, that I should start looking for a mentor or an accountability partner he said that it’s his opinion that like most things in life, the only wrong way to do it to do it alone. One is the worst number of business.
So all in all I’m pretty excited
I know that it will be a long journey and that all need a lot of help from a lot of people, but I know it will be worth it in the end.
