Start Your Own Small Business
Putting energy and action into owning your own business will be one of the most exciting experiences of your life. Some people may wonder if they should own a business. But it doesn't hurt to give it a try; you only fail when you don't try. Some people have tried many times and failed in some way; but they kept at it, that's what makes them a business owner because they will not give up or give in. We all learn from mistakes, and that's what makes us better the next time. Having your own business can actually be a reality.
For instance; just think if Shaquille O'Neil would refuse to go to the free throw line. He wouldn't be the NBA Player he is today, and the money is motivating also. And he does this in front of billions of people on national TV, and he still throws the ball somewhere near the hoop. A failure is someone who gives up completely, every time he fails at something. And a winner is someone who keeps trying no matter what, even if he fails a few times, he won't give up; persistence is the key.
But don't quit your day job at least for the moment.
When you decide to become an entrepreneur be as positive as you can. Also think realistically about your decision on owing a business. You would need personal qualities, family and friends support, willingness to work long hours. This will require taking risks and sacrifices to invest time, energy, and flexibility into your new business. Also you can get your finances faster, and you can get more money than working for someone else. At a regular job we spend a lot of hours there, why shouldn't we enjoy it.
A personal quality in being an entrepreneur is self-motivation; making things happen, needing to achieve in every way. The odds are 'for you' more than they are against you. One reason is that there are small business grants you can apply for online, from library books, small business books (Barnes and Noble), as having your own business. So as the saying goes; "Why put off for tomorrow what you can do today?"

In marketing, you know exactly what you’re doing, either you’re getting orders or not. Having a habit of hard work is essential. Having your own business is hard work. If you’re already a hard worker, then owning a business is for you. It requires being a leader to organize a small business. Most entrepreneurs are careful planners. A national survey shows that a huge percentage of teenagers than adults, were interested in someday being an entrepreneur. More businesses is now being owned by women, than being owned by men. So when will you begin owning your own business, is the question?
I have worked for a couple of small business owners, and they had great finances as a small business company. Each entrepreneur has different personality, skills, strengths, and weaknesses. Focus on ways of being different, and doing new things no one else may have done; be innovative. Nearly 90% of entrepreneurs made their fortunes by owning their own business. Again, positive self-motivation, and determination is the key. Say to yourself, "I have an entrepreneur spirit and I will succeed with the necessary tools." Surround yourself with positive people, and ideas. Focus your thoughts on doing better and being better. When I started my first business in the 90's, I needed positive enforcement; I went to the book store and then I purchased Napoleon Hill's - "Think and Grow Rich." This was the best positive motivational influence I have ever heard. Basically, educate your mind with positive influence and "self-motivation." The potential financial reward of entrepreneurship is major.
It is extremely important that you are good at something. What positive things do your family and friends tell you that you’re good at? Have a teacher or someone else told you what your good at? What are things you like to do? Answering these questions can help you with some sort of idea, as to what you want to do, as having your own business.
Registering your business can benefit you, the owner, since you can then write off business expenses, and reduce your personal taxes. In most states, the basic types of business structures are:
♦ Sole proprietorship
♦ Limited liability companies (LLCs)
The simpler business structures to run are sole proprietors and partnerships. You will free the business from having to pay payroll taxes, if you were to employ your spouse as your business partner. Finally, working as an entrepreneur having your own business can be fun. Individuals who really enjoy what they are doing are more likely to do it better.
