Have you been waiting to start your business until it's the “right time”?
I’ve got good news and bad news 🙂
Bad news: It's never going to be the perfect time to start your business, it's never going to be the perfect time to write an eBook and it's never going to be the perfect time to launch your program.
Good news: Now is as good a time as any. Actually, now is the best time, because the sooner you start, the sooner you profit.
At a certain point you just have to do it and figure it out along the way.

You’re gonna learn by doing, not by sitting around thinking about doing. As Marie Forleo says all the time, “Clarity comes from engagement, not thought.”
A lot of times, we really just don't know. We have to put something out there, perhaps a blog post or a video and see how it resonates, see if our ideal clients like it, or if they have more questions. And that often kind of informs what path you're going to take next, or what your next steps are. Or if the product that you have in mind to create is going to be a good one, and one that's going to sell well, or if perhaps your idea needs a little bit of refining.
Of course it's important to choose the right topic for your eBook or other project. One of the ways you can do that is by putting some stuff out there and see how it resonates by asking your readers and your followers what they think.
A question I get often by readers that are thinking of taking my course “Create Passive Income with EBooks” is, should I wait until I have more traffic to my site, a big email list and following and then create and launch an ebook. The assumption is that with a large following launching an ebook will result in massive sales. I think this is a big mistake and misconception. Right now, your readers are coming to your site and leaving with nothing to buy.
You’d be surprised at how many sales you can make and lives you can affect even with a small reader base that grows over time.
Start your biz, create your ebook, tackle whatever project it is you have your heart set on today. There’s no time like the present.
What’s holding you back?
