READ THIS IF YOU ARE CONFUSED ON WHAT BUSINESS TO DO by Godstime Efeni
Yesterday I got a message from a lady who started pouring out her heart of how she is confused on what business to do and there are so many things she has learnt but still do not know what business is right to start.
I smiled not because of my face was filled with goosebumps rather my mind went back to when I was in that same position 3 years ago. It was like my head became the second business types and different kinds center.
What do I mean by that?
I thought youtube and google will help me come out of confusion but guess what, my head was filled up with different information.
Mr A will tell you it is blogging business you need to start, mr B will say start mini importation business and others brought their own which made me confused that more. I paid for several classes and became online courses sellers customer. My email got filled up with a lot of come and pay for this and that course.
How did I get out of that confusion?
1. KNOWING THE DEFINITION OF BUSINESS
At first my knowledge about what business meant was that I needed to sell one expensive product or offer services like other people online but I discovered it was beyond that.
The day I got to know that business simply means SOLVING PROBLEMS I stopped looking for what business to do and started looking for what problems I can solve.
Right now I have a content creation business where I create content like articles, books, sales copy for business owners, personal brands etc.
Do you see that I didn’t struggle to know what business I should start.
So ask yourself what problems do you want to solve.
After finding the problem, the next thing you need to do is research the solutions and then monetize it.
For instance, I discovered a problem among aspiring writers and writers that most of them struggle to create content that people will love to read, comment, share and even do business with them. I went into research and found solutions which I teach in my online training.
Now you know that business is solving problems, list all the problems you have passion, gift and experience to solve. The next thing you do is pick the most demanding one in the market and start.
2. I LOOKED FOR THE RIGHT COACH
Yes I know that look on your face, the word right coach was intentionally used because many people that are confused about what business to start do not know who is right for them as a coach.
Take note that I am not talking about people who want free coaching rather I mean people who are ready to pay a coach and get answers to their confusion.
How did I find the right coach?
Simple, I looked for someone who was speaking my pain and also had the solutions to my pain. I looked for someone who also experienced same frustration, came out of it and now teaches others how to come out of it too.
Now you know how to get the right coach so go look for one now in order to get clarity of what problems to solve, how to get solutions, where to start from and how to get clients that will pay you.
I believe you have gotten value.
