When you’re running your own business, do you sometimes wonder why things are going slower than you planned?

Do you have a ready excuse for why you’re not making the progress you hoped when you first started out?

Have you found things come up that get in the way of you doing the work you need to get done?

If you’ve struggled with any of these issues or questions then don’t worry! They’re all perfectly normal and thousands of other business owners are facing the same challenges.

Building a successful business takes time and application, the right tools, but above all the right attitude.

As you build your business there are bound to be problems and it’s soooo easy
to give up, blame others or go watch a movie instead. BUT (with apologies to

IF you can get ideas for your business

IF you can get the right tools

IF you can gain some knowledge

IF you can set up a long term plan

IF you can build a business


Be patient

Be committed

Be focussed

Believe in your ideas and yourself

Then you will be one of the few that success will come to and your world will be a better place my friend.

Good luck – and remember, if you get stuck or need an answer just ask on the forum.
