Many small business owners begin their business on a wing and a prayer — and many are successful. But each and every day I hear from small business owners who have run into an obstacle because they say they don’t have the money to do what they want to do.
If that sounds like you — I hate to say this, but think outside your box. Don’t think of a necessary action as an expense, think of it as the cost of doing business. How else can you accommodate the costs of doing business besides spending money?
- You can barter for other people’s services
- You can use your own sweat equity
- You can tap into your network and find someone who knows someone who can help you.
These are just three ideas. Set yourself a goal and brainstorm ways to make it happen. You have the power within yourself to make anything happen.
