I’m sure it’s crossed everyone’s mind at one stage or another in their life, and the obvious perks and benefits to it either cloud one’s judgment, or, in your mind at least, far outweigh the potential hazards & pitfalls…
I’m obviously talking about skinny-dipping… Not really. I’m talking about starting your own business. Who wouldn’t want to be their own boss, right?
The problem is, there are so many problems! What is your business going to do? How the hell are you supposed to start this thing? What are you going to eat while you are starting this thing, and most importantly, how much do 2-minute noodles cost?
But seriously, starting your own business is nothing to be laughed at. Taking that plunge is a huge leap of faith and the first step to fulfilling the dream. There are obviously thousands of steps to follow, which will involve sacrifices, hard work and a whole lot of luck, but the first one is the most important and requires the biggest balls.
For me, one of the most daunting aspects of this process was doing it alone; there is always more comfort in tackling a task with someone beside you, fighting in your corner. Here at Sprout Creative PR, I am fortunate to have found people who not only believe in me and bring out the best in me, but who are insanely talented, driven and brilliant at what they do. We all share the same vision and we are all working like crazy to accomplish it.
So watch this space, our journey is just beginning, and its is going to be one hell of a ride, no doubt filled with highs and lows, but one thing I guarantee is that this little company is going to sprout into something magical! See what I did there 😉
