What do you do when you change your focus?
Focusing on what is important and what needs to be accomplished can be challenging. However, what happens when you decide to change your focus?
How many times have you set out to do something great but then life happens, unforeseen problems, children, and family and suddenly the great thing you wanted to do suddenly is not your focus.
How do you get that focus back? Where do you start?
First, you have to be resolved to stay focused! Just because you made the decision to accomplish something doesn’t mean life will stop so that you can get it done.
Life doesn’t stop because you decided to become focused on your goals and accomplishing your dreams! This is a crucial moment – staying focus is vital to your success!
Here a few key points to remember!

How many of us have ready the opening of a blog, email or envelope that promises you that in 30 days we can be wealthy and have our own business?
I know I have read one just yesterday!
So here is the deal- it is not going to happen in 30 days. Making your dreams a reality is going to take work, focus, work, concentration and did I mention WORK !!!!
This how it works, you have a great idea and you want to make it into a business, or turn a profit on it, or you want to start a nonprofit so that you can help other people. Great!! Now it is time to put all those ideas on paper and really decide what direction you want to go in.
Ideas are great- but until they become reality- they are just ideas.
You have to want your dream or idea so bad that it is all you want to work on or think about and talk about. You will not mind putting in the work that is required.
If you find yourself making excuses as to why you can’t work on your business then you may not be ready to make your dream a reality.
When you’re truly ready- you will make no excuses- you will find answers!
Dreams + Work = Reality

Let’s make that Dream a Reality
Thank you to everyone that emailed your questions in! I greatly appreciate it. I thought I would share some of the questions that I received the names have been omitted!
Do you really have experience helping people start their own business?
Yes! I have helped friends and families for over 10 years in some form or fashion understand their passion and turn it into a business or help them set up a non-profit.
I’m afraid to start my business- exactly what is my first step?
Being afraid is OK it is when you let that fear STOP YOU- that is NOT OKAY. The first step is to call for your FREE 30 MINUTE CONSULTATION. Always put your ideas on paper! It is easier to keep up with and it makes it a reality when
you see it written down.
I just need to find a grant that is going to give me money to fix my house and maybe go back to
Researching for a grant is easy. Applying for a grant and actually receiving one is NOT EASY. There are a ton
of grants out there that may help you do what you would like to do HOWEVER; you must do the ground work
FIRST. Meaning you have to be willing to do the work required for the grant.
My friends are always asking for me to “hook them up".
Well if you continue to ‘hook up’ your friends they are the only ones benefiting from your hard work! At some point you have ask yourself the question why are you just giving your information away?
I really want to start something but I don’t have the money and I have can’t afford to pay someone to help me.
There are things you can do first. For example your business plan, organizing your thoughts and ideas of how you want to run the business what product or services you are going to offer. All the while you can be saving for the things that you will need money for (i.e. licenses, forms, and applications).
These are just a few of the great questions that I received.
I ask that you do just one thing before the day ends….OR before your begin your day
Take a pen and paper and write down ONE THING that you are going to DO DIFFERENTLY TODAY THAN YOU DID YESTERDAY! It can be as small or as big as you choose. For some saying fewer curse words than the day before or
perhaps, not complaining the first 10 minutes you’re at work.
I promise if you do this exercise every day you will start to notice change in your thinking, your attitude and most of all your ACTIONS!

Remember that song? Of course you do! Friends are awesome! However, when it comes to friends and business sometimes things are NOT that awesome!
Take a look at the following scenario:
You and your friend have talked hours on end about the great business idea that you both have. A decision has to be made on how it is going to look, how everyone’s way life will change and how much better it’s going to be.
There is a BIG difference between being friends and being business partners. If your friend is a procrastinator now, they will be one when you are business together!
If they are too tired from work to work on the business – they will always be too tired.
Some questions to ask you and your potential partner:
1. Who is going to be the final decision maker?
2. Who will actually do the work of the business?
3. Who is in charge of the money and who will handle the finances?
4. What happens when one person is not pulling their weight in the business?
These questions are not meant to break up friendships however; it is a guide to help open discussions on important topics.
If you need help having that difficult conversation schedule your FREE 30 MINUTE CONSULTATION so that I can give you some pointers on how to get started.
REMEMBER YOUR IDEA OF SUCCESS AND COMMITMENT IS NOT THE SAME AS EVERYONE ELSE
Great questions and I am glad you asked! There is so much you need to do first before you actually need money! The majority of it will be sweat equity!
Let me explain it like this when you look at your local grocery store what do you see? The groceries? The cashiers, the signs etc. . . . What you don’t see is the work that has happened behind the scenes to make all of that possible. The same is true for you as a new business owner or someone who wants to start a nonprofit.
First, thing you need to do is decide what you want to do; remember the list I asked that you create? Once you have decided what you want to do with your passion. Now you’re ready for another ACTION STEP!
Second, is deciding what type of business entity is best for you; for profit or not for profit (nonprofit). Which one is better suited to provide your service to your potential customer?
Next, is gathering the necessary information together to create your vision and dream and make it a reality!
The entire process, depending on how committed you are to achieving your goal could take 6 to 12 months.
Sounds simple enough?
I will share a very valuable lesson with you:
Yes it is simple enough; I have it in three easy steps HOWEVER, you must stay dedicated, motivated and focused on your end goal. CONSISTENCY IS CRITICAL!
Now you are telling yourself I can do that ! ABSOLUTELY you can. So what do you need Waddell Consulting Services for?
You need Waddell Consulting Services for those times when you can’t find the answer, when your resolve to continue is zero or when you are simply lost and confused among the paperwork and what steps really do come next.
It never hurts to ask and have a trusted advisor on your side when you are making serious life decisions.

Alright so you have made the leap and decide that you are officially going to become a business owner. Now that the idea is a reality what do you do now? WORK and more WORK!!!
I want to make sure that you understand the amount of work that it will take to achieve your dream!
There will be long hours and sacrifices to be made. Once you are committed to making your dreams a reality it is no longer work!
Here are a couple questions for you:
How hard do you work for your current employer?
How dedicated are you to that organizations mission and vision?
Do you often work long hours?
Does your pay equal the work that you do?
WHY NOT WORK THAT HARD FOR YOURSELF!
Simple enough right? Unfortunately, many will never work harder for themselves than they do for their employer. I suggest committing at least; in the beginning, one hour three times a week to working on your business.
Why this length of time? Because it’s not overwhelming and if you’re dedicated you will increase it on your own.
Working for yourself means when you’re tired you work, when you’re sleepy you work, when
you want a vacation you still work.
Let Waddell Consulting Services help you by first taking a look at your idea, second, let WCS help you understand what is realistic for you to accomplish and last be that support system that you need when you have more questions than answers.

NEVER be in business for yourself!!
At some point you have to be honest with yourself and realize that ACTION ALWAYS BEATS INTENTION and that you have to STOP UNDERESTIMATING YOURSELF.
I have been there and I understand completely the overwhelming feeling you can have just thinking about what you need to do- although you may have no idea what it is you really need to do!!! Does this sound familiar?
Contact Waddell Consulting Services and let me help you understand what you need to do first. Often we can let fear stop us from achieving our goals.
