The thought of staring your own business can provoke fear.  It can also provoke amazing  ideas that will leave you speechless.  A friend of  mine who was  100% sure that she will never own a business.  She  believed that  she  does not  have what it takes to be a business woman.  One day  she amazed her husband when she told him that she want to open a Hair Extension Business.

This is how  I provoke her.

She visited me  at my business.  we started talking about  business, I opened the books and showed her how much  I make every day.  I said to her  “this is all mine, here I control the money, I don’t have a boss like you. On a busy day I know that  I will be smiling to the bank  but you  on a busy day   you know that you are making money for the company. ”

I Could see as  I was talking to her that  I was provoking something inside her.  She started asking the right questions and I gave her the right answers. I gave her a list of business opportunities and she chose selling hair. Selling hair is a very lucrative business  in Africa where every woman looks her best in a nice piece of Brazilian hair.  My friend is  now a successful  business woman.  Her business ideas were  provoked by the thought of making money for herself not for the company she was working for.

To awaken the  passion inside you ,sometimes yo need to visit   your local  entrepreneurs  and ask them  how they have started and the challenges they have gone through.  this  will help you to make a decision on whether you can withstand the pressure of owning  a business. The worst mistake that you will ever make in your life is not to try. Try and see how it will go,taking one step at a time.
