When To Start Your Own Business

The number one question people ask me when they hear that I own my own business is this:

When is the best time to start your own business? 

People tell me they have ideas for their own business...that they dream of being out on their own and making an impact in the world. But they want to know when the perfect time to start might be. 

I always give the same answer. There is NO perfect time to start your own business. You will never get to a point where you are not afraid to fail. You will never get to a point where you have learned enough to get started. There is no point at which your decision will be feel less risky or less daunting. And delaying for any longer is just an excuse to NOT get started. Delaying makes you feel better about the waiting because you convince yourself that you are waiting for a reason, but you aren't.

You don't need permission to get started, but in case you feel like you do....today would be a great day to get started!
