Can I Be A Successful Entrepreneur?

Can you?

What do you think?

The answer is: “Absolutely YES!”

There is Successful Business within You

I’ll never forget when I walked into the San Francisco City Hall office to register my fictitious business name, “Success By Choice, Inc.”  It was so easy.  I was shocked.  After paying my fee and completing the appropriate paperwork, I was told to return in three days to obtain my business registration number.

I returned and received my business registration number.  I was now officially in business.  I asked, “What do I do now?”

 

The clerk smiled and said, “Go get your business cards and stationary and open a business bank account.”  I thought to myself, “It can’t be this easy.”

But sure enough, it was this easy.

Wow!  Just think, I went through the same process to register a business like Microsoft, General Electric, and Southwest Airlines did.  That was January 15, 1992.  And ever since, life as a business owner has been filled with incredible experiences that I will always treasure.

Why am I sharing this with you?

It’s because I KNOW that you have something unique to offer the world.  And ONLY you can do it the way you will do it.  I encourage you to answer these questions:

  • What do I love to do?
  • What would I do for free?
  • What comes easy to me?
  • How can I turn my hobbies into a business?”

These are the exact same questions that I asked myself when I first began Success By Choice.  And to help gain clarity, I actually wrote my answers.  I encourage you to do the same because greater clarity occurs when we write our answers on paper.  New ideas and revelations will come.

I truly believe EVERYONE should have their own business, either part-time or full-time, because you will learn so much about yourself, your strengths, your improvement areas, the meaning of life, how to connect with people and etc.

Trust me, you can do it.  Do what you love and more opportunities will come to you.

So your Opportunity Exercise is:

Each day, for the next seven (7) days, you will take action on developing your business concept.  First, get clarity on what your ideal business is.  Next, using the internet, research company leaders in your desired field. Go to the library and obtain additional support from the librarians in researching your industry.  Your outcome is to register your business name, obtain business cards and open a business bank account within the next seven (7) days.  There is POWER in taking action.

  • Hi ! I was just listening to TBN and saw you !!!
    I am at this place in life – and encouraged by what you say here on this website, and I agree with you – we all have gifts we can use – to fulfill our destiny and purpose;
    I have adult kids now, and have been pulling together what this next phase in life is suppose to be like; I have worked jobs for the sake of having a job; underpaid, underappreciated – and small paychecks;
    Been out of work for most of the past 4 years; The past 18 months I have been utilizing my photography skills and combining them with my passion with the Word of God and want to use that to encourage others in writing and even speaking if anyone ever wanted me to speak at a ladies event or ___? It has been slow moving, as I have little income at the moment and lost my home three years ago, been looking for angel investors – but none yet;
    So glad I found this site… hope to find some insight and would appreciate prayers – for a home again, so I can have more quiet time (its very noisey here where I am staying now); I know God is bringing me to this place, I also am aware the enemy does NOT want me to fulfill my destiny and encourage others in God – but he is defeated! HA!~ Jesus REIGNS in my life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
