WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
I received a congratulation message for a business I studies and wanted to start 5 years ago, the message was like “5-year Anniversary Achievement, Happy anniversary with *company name* ………..”
I quickly go to check the key players in that business niche, you know what I noticed? They are all below 4 years in the industry and they are receiving a very large amount daily.
I regret never continuing 5 years ago.
I wanted to help someone purchased some goods from UK and China, after selecting out items to the chart and about to pay, when he saw the delivery time of 2 weeks he asked me to stop the transaction. He said 2 weeks was too much.
A month letter has no bought the items and the money is gone, you know what he told me?
“I would have just ordered those items at that time”.
I have my regret for not continuing what I started 5 years ago, I don’t want you to go through same that’s why I am here to tell you where I failed so you won’t fail as well.
If you have a business idea, even if it is not insecticides production business any business at all just get started.
Never let an idea slip through your fingers, you might regret it.
If you don’t have the capital to start, write the business idea done with all the required amount to start, now keep it close to where you can easily reach it.
Go through it from time to time to awaken your spirit to work towards that achievement.
