Happen to Your Career | Career Transition, Career Changes, Figure out what you want, Jobs, Strengths, Starting Businesses (podcast)

Starting the career search process can be intimidating, especially since the first thing any job search website asks for is WHAT? Like you’re supposed to know what job title you want in the first place?

When you don’t know what career path you want to take, the process is not only hard to get started, it can be paralyzing when you don’t have all of the answers.

Just thinking about a career change causes stress, anxiety, frustration, and fear to rise inside many people because the majority feel stuck and unsure of what to do first.

Many people think that they want to start a business.

It's been a dream in the back of their mind.

They've fantasized about what it would be like and how they will be in control of their lives and not have a boss telling them what to do.

They want to be in control of their own schedule and their own income.

All of that sounds really great, but is starting a business something that would actually be good for you or is it just better as a dream?

We've put together a set of questions to ask yourself about what you really want, so you can decide if you want to actually start a business.

In today's podcast, 173 How to Know if You Should Start a Business, Mark Sieverkropp, a great friend of mine and of HTYC (Fun fact: Mark helped get my business off the ground), joins me in answering these questions.

If you're leaning toward starting your own business now or have that in your plans in the future, make sure you take a listen to find out more to see if starting a business is right for you.

Mark and I will guide you on how to answer:

  1. What do you really want out of starting a business?
  2. Are you more interested in actually starting the business or simply running or operating a business?
  3. Do you have anything right now that is actually stopping you from starting a business?
  4. Are you willing to go the long haul? Are you willing to commit to this for the long run?
