Good Morning. In the past 12 months, I have been all over the place trying to find information on how to start my own company and be successful. I have found an abundance of information from so many different sources. The library, the internet, people I know who run their own companies have all taught me one needs money, patience, drive, and hard work, as well as many other things, to make it work. Even through all of this information, no one has mentioned the single greatest aspect of my success: my family. If you read my blog on a regular basis, you know I have been trying to get this company going for a year. If you measure my success by the number of clients I am currently working with, some of you might say I was failing. Luckily, I don’t feel my success is measured by the number of new accounts I have. I am measuring my success with each new step that has been taken. If I take a step that works well, and has taught me something new, it is a success in my book. All of my missed steps are not a failure. Each is just simply a new experience in what doesn’t work. The one constant I can always count on is the support of my family. There have been a few occasions when I was ready to give up. There have been times when I have taken so many wrong turns, I felt like I was going in circles. Without the support of my family, KBK Office Services would not be the reality it is today. My hope is to someday make this company all I that I know it can be, and as long as I have their support, I know it will be. If you are absolutely positive you want to dive in and open your own business, here is my advice. There are going to be times where you will feel like you are going no where. There will be times when you don’t know what you are doing. Admit to yourself that you need help. We all do from time to time. The experts will tell you to do your research, make sure you have enough money, hire a marketing company and so on. If you have the resources to do it, then go for it. It will make things that much easier. If you have the resources, you will build your business very quickly. In reality, however, lack of resources does not inhibit you from being successful. If you don’t have the resources, oh well. All you need is the drive to do well and the support of a loving family. So by all means, take the plunge. Learn something new. Enjoy the wonderful adventure you are creating. In the end, this will be what you leave behind. Make it all you want it to be.
