1. You

Don’t worry about the business idea before you’ve come to understand your Self and your gifts, and what you want from your business. Starting with the idea is starting the process in the middle. Your idea isn’t going to make your business a success, you are. So do the work and find your answers. Discover what it is that you would really love to do.For it’s not the idea that that is going to shoot you into the stratosphere, it’s the quality of You that is turning the idea into a reality.

2. Your Relationships

Don’t worry about finding an accountant before you’ve taken the time to determine the role your most important relationships will play in your business. They, and you, need to have a realistic picture of how your relationship, and your time together, is going to change. Conscious effort is needed to realistically plan how your relationships will support your efforts and not derail them. Many businesses are destroyed by lack of support, unexpected demands, unmet needs, unspoken expectations or personal loss.

If you’re supporting, and being supported by, both You and Your Relationships, you’ve got “what it takes” to turn your dreams into reality. For it’s what’s within you and what supports you that will bring you the success you dream of.
