James Schramko here. Today, we’re going to talk about how much work is involved in growing your own business.
I was chatting with a client today and we’re talking about building his online component. He has a very strong offline business and when we were talking about the online stuff he said, “Well, gee that’s a lot of work,” and I said, “Yes, it is. It absolutely is,” and that’s something we should celebrate because if it was easy, everyone would do it and then it wouldn’t be worth doing anyway. And then I said, “When you built your offline business was that a lot of work?” And he said, “Yes.” And I said, “What about your marriage or your house? You know, anything you’ve ever done before, any sporting achievement, there was probably a phase where you have a lot of work in the build-up to it. So, yes it can be a lot of work.”
Is it going to be a lot of work forever? No. There are systems. There are ways to leverage but there is an inevitable situation and that is most worthwhile things are going to have a phase of work so deal with it. Get the discipline to push through that phase and then you’ll have something worthwhile.
I’m James Schramko. I hope you’ve enjoyed this tip today.
