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

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?

Also in the podcast, Olivia and Scott discuss some of the biggest takeaways they have learned when they decided to grow each of their businesses. The discussion gets into everything from how to make the time to focus on building your side business, to becoming a business owner, and to how to validate your business as a real way to replace the income you bring in from your current job.
