Reach happiness with help from your own business

Sep 15, 2013 No Comments by

Happiness…. It’s something that everyone, yes, every single person is trying to achieve. Does everyone succeed? No, they certainly don’t, but anyone can succeed if they know how to do it. Sure, difficult situations may come in anyone’s life, but it’s easier to make it through these difficulties if you’re a basically happy person.

So, what can you do to become a happy person? The main thing to start with, is to look into the life you have today. Do you have much spare time? Much time to do what you think is fun? Do you have a job that you enjoy? Enough time with your family and friends? These are main things to consider if you want to be happy. It’s actually entirely impossible to be happy if you’re too stressed out, and if you have a job that you don’t like.

Get a job where you are the boss

To have a boss who tells you what to do all the time, and who more or less forces you to do overtime, can be very frustrating and stressful. It’s definitely not something that makes you happier, which means it’s time to do something about it. One solution is to become your own boss. Start your own business and do something that you’re really good at! It won’t be easy from day one, it will take some really hard work, but it will be worth it, as you can spend all the time to do something you enjoy, and to build up something that is your own.

Find the idea to do it

The first thing you need to do in order to start your own business, is to find the perfect idea. You need to come up with something that you really enjoy doing, something that you’re good at, and one more, very important thing; it has to be something that is required and needed. It can be a service or a product that people wants, but you should try to avoid fields with too much competition if possible.

So, do you enjoy visiting flea markets, trying to find real gems? Great! Then it’s what you should do. Start travelling around the country, trying to find hidden gems, renovate them if needed and sell them for more than you bought them for. That way you can start making money real quick.

Do you like knitting? Then you should make your business be all about knitting. Focus on some specific type of knitting, such as children clothes, scarves, hats or something else that you’re truly good at. Try to come up with something that makes you stand out from the crowd, and start an Etsy shop to gain customers and to make people notice you.

Plan it all in advance

Sure some things can’t be planned, you need to figure it out on the way. However, it’s good to plan as much as you can in advance, to have a clue about what you’re doing. To make it easier for you I’ve compiled a list of things to do before you get going.

 

  • Full time or part time? – Are you going to focus completely on this project from the beginning and quit your old job right away? Or do you prefer to be on the safe side and stay at your old job for the first year or so, and work part time with your own business? It’s all up to you, but this is something you have to plan and decide before you start.
  • Financial plans – How are you going to finance the project? Do you need an office? Or a place where you can run a shop? Or do you plan to run it all from the web? Do you need to buy products/ingredients/equipment to get started, or do you have all you need already? These are all questions you need to answer before you’re ready to start off.
  • How are you going to reach the customers? – This is most certainly a main issue in every business. It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to sell a service or a product, you still need to reach out to the customers in order to succeed. Are you planning to print flyers, cards, posters, etc. to make people aware of your business? Will you participate in social media, such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, to reach out to a broader audience? Figure it out before you start, that way you’ll get going much more quickly. You can’t just sit there and wait for the customers to come to you. It’s you who should reach out to them, and show them you exist.

 

Try answering these questions before you proceed with your plans. When you have it all figured out it’s time to get the boat floating. Good Luck with your new life and your new business! It may very well be your key to success and happiness.

Career, Happiness

My name is Tezz and I'm a 29-years-old mother of 2. I spend most of my time at soccer practice, hockey practice or floor ball practice with my sons, but I also enjoy exercising myself. I love zumba, aerobics, jogging and of course power walking. My interest in health and training has grown since I became a mom. It all started when I wanted to lose a few extra pounds that I gained during my pregnancies, but it increased to become an honest interest in exercising and today I find it important to have a healthy lifestyle. I've also worked as a skincare consultant for a couple of years and I love beauty related topics just as much as health related topics. I love makeup and skincare and I'm looking forward to share my hobbies with you!
