Happy New Year! It’s 2015 and a lot of things have begun to happen. I will be doing some things differently this year. At the end of 2014, I gave up hair braiding. Don’t get me wrong, I did not give up the business, but just the work of standing behind the chair. So you may wonder, “What is next, Bukola?”
In addition to nonprofit work, I have decided to focus on training. I get questions all the time about how to start a business. Sometimes, I have someone complaining about her job or someone needs some kind of guidance about how to start her business. And, since I know myself as a person in the help ministry, I thought that I would transition into training – multifaceted training – how to start a business (for profit or nonprofit), hair braiding training or hair business – and the steps to take without going around in circles or wasting money. It does not take a lot as you may think, it only takes your dedicated time to follow simple steps to realize that dream of quitting whatever you were doing but not happy with to doing what you really love to do, or do something extra on the side to bring you a residual income.
I went around in circles before I finally got it. More so, there are various resources in the community. I must however confess that some of the resources are just a waste of time, energy, and money. There are some resources that either lead to nowhere or provide you with nothing, but the big name and years that they have been in the community.
I will not be taking much of your time today. But before you go, take a look at the short video I made of Roxann below. I helped her to start her business few weeks ago. If you are interested in starting your own business or know someone who may be interested, you can sign up for my upcoming Live Event entitled Be Your Own Boss here or pass the information along.
Thanks for reading. I hope to talk to you again through my blogs. If you have questions, comments or suggestions, please, send me a note – fill out the contact form. I want to hear from you. You can also get my recent posts by signing up to receive updates.
