Purpose, Coffee & Wifi - Starting your own business

Female entrepreneurs Blogging tips

Female entrepreneurs seems to be springing up from everywhere at the moment. I don't know if it's something in that water, but it definitely seems like something is stirring within the female community which I've not experienced before. But whatever it is, it's really exciting to be be a part of.  Needless to say, I too have been bitten with the ambition bug and I'm getting ready to launch my new business website in the next coming weeks. eeek! Women around me are talking about dreams of running their own businesses, and being their own boss. I'm well and truly seated on that band-waggon. Come join?

Make sure you're following me so you don't miss out on the big launch

Setting up a business yourself has never been easier. Literally, as the post image reads, all you need is Purpose. Coffee. & Wifi. Firstly, you've got to figure out your Purpose, which means knowing who you are, and what you have to offer others. Entrepreneurship should first and for-mostly be about serving others, whether with a product or your services, this is your purpose. 

Secondly, Coffee. Well.. take this one with a pinch of salt, as what I'm really talking about is Motivation. You need something that's really going to get you going in the morning. With no boss keeping tabs on you, it's up to you to make it happen. The idea of coffee is enough to get me out of bed in the morning, but find what motivates you and use it! 

I also recommend getting your hands on some great content; being blogs, (I recommend The Well Studio or Elle & Co.) or books (Prayer for the dreamer & the doer & Girl Code are two of my favourites). I also love listening to podcasts, check out Online Marketing Made Easy with Amy Porterfield, it's a good-un.

Thirdly, Wifi. This one's pretty obvious, these days businesses need the internet to connect with their customers. Online Marketing is key to success for new businesses, this includes e-commerce, Social Media, Advertising and Networking. I'd love to focus on Networks because they're just so powerful! Networks can be the difference between success and failure. You can't go it alone, so make sure you get yourself positioned around other people running the same race as you. Having a great network can be so inspiring, and helpful - if you've got questions, the chances are someone in your network will be able to help, and you can offer your expertise in exchange. It's all about Collaboration, NOT Competition. Join groups, meet ups, twitter chats and online communities.  

I feel like it's a really exciting time, and it's so inspiring seeing women stepping out and bossing their own lives and businesses!
