I have decided that it is my goal to create my own business rather than working a wage-paying job. I know have zero business experience and knowledge, and am probably one of the worst procrastinators alive. These are weaknesses that I will need to attack and change. On the positive side, I would describe myself as highly intelligent and creative.
Overall goal: achieve financial freedom + lifestyle freedom
I am primarily motivated by the freedom and self-ownership of running my own enterprise. However, financial security and success is obviously a key part of my goal, and who knows what I may achieve if I can get my head straight.
Immediate goals (not in order):
1. Decide what kind of business I would like to create (Marketing, import/export product-based, etc.)
2. Identify resources (reading materials etc) and possibly mentors to provide me with the knowledge to do this.
3. Work on my obstructive-to-success habits such as procrastination and laziness etc
How would you advise me?
The main question I am asking is: Where does one start? It seems there is an abundance of information available which is great, but vast and intimidating at the same time. I am looking for a foundation stone, a point of origin, a place to start trying to get my head around all this...any recommendations would be very welcome!
