More and more acquaintances approach us with the idea of starting a painting business without money. They ask us things like Franck, what company can I start? , How can I find a good idea to start a business? or what market do you size?
It is normal. The number of unemployed people increases day after day, with which many people find themselves without economic resources and must find a way to obtain their income.
In these troubled times, there are only two options to get it:
Or you are lucky enough to find a job, which surely implies that you will have to give up many of the advantages that you had in your last position (accept a lower salary, less social benefits, a less exciting job, etc.).
Or you must invent a job and discover what business to undertake.
I see many people who already have an individual professional career and who are very lost. They are precious people who should not have so many problems at the moment of trying to invent a job.
This does not have as much to do with a lack of technical or business preparation, but with the lack of mental development: the ability to have initiatives, to believe in oneself and to launch oneself to undertake.
In this post today, we at Local Ann Arbor Businesses will try to draw what may be the initial step in the genesis of a business project that is feasible (without resources to launch) and that allows the medium term to generate decent income on the Internet.
The business that I should undertake should only seek to make easy money?
I want to talk to you about a concept present in the book "Good to Great," written by Jim Collins. In this work, the author tries to understand why some large multinationals are successful and their direct competitors, of equal size or strength, no.
In general, the author concludes that three areas must be united to create a momentum of success in a business project.
What do you know how to do?
On the one hand, you have to have skills. In the case of painters Ann Arbor, it is about knowledge, technology, manufacturing processes or sales.
If you work for 10 or 15 years in a sector in a distinct functional area, there are many things that you know a lot about. Make a list with all of them, without worrying about how to see if they are worth something in the market or not.
What things do you like?
The second sphere is one of the things that you like.
In this book, Jim Collins showed that, in absolutely all the projects of macro success, there was a management team that was not with the management or with making more money, but with the products themselves, with helping the people who bought their products. Products or their services.
This is the sphere of passion.
And I think that there is a fundamental message: you are unemployed, okay, but you hated your job.
So if you did not like your work, now you have a fantastic opportunity to correct this aspect of your life, and if, like me, you approach 40 years of age, it is an excellent time to make this reflection and not spend the rest of your life doing things you do not like.
So go prepare an Ann Arbor Business list in which you enumerate entirely all the passions you can have (your hobbies, the things you really like ...) because in a blog it is essential that people perceive not only good content but also that the author of the blog transmit that desire, that joy, that energy so contagious that you feel when you enjoy doing what you do.
