Is now the right time to open the business that you want? Honestly, we all want to have our own business and be financially stable immediately. However, as entrepreneurs we have to consider what the current market looks like for that particular business.
For example, when the housing market crashed, that may not have been the best time to become a realtor.
Research what others are doing in your field. Who will be your competition? As an entrepreneur you have to think about every aspect of a business because you are now no longer an employee but a business owner. Evaluating your surroundings is critical to your success.
Taking the time to evaluate your surroundings will be beneficial in the long run. It will help you develop a great marketing plan and it will position you better for understanding your business. You will get the answers to the following questions:
Answers to these questions will help decide your future as a business owner. I urge you to take time to think about your future business endeavors and evaluate your surroundings.
Evaluating your surroundings also means using your resources. Contact Waddell Consulting Services today to

Today’s topic is courteous of Christopher Gee, Owner of FHIR a Non-Profit Organization in Charlotte, NC.
You think you’re ready? You’ve been doing this for a while and perhaps you have paying customers and things are going
great. Before you JUMP into your business FULL TIME let’s look at some of the questions
1. How much are you making as a percentage of your day job?
2. How is the income trending from your small business? Is it a steady income or sporadic?
Deciding when to quit your day job is a serious decision and there any many factors that need to be considered before you make that JUMP.
One of the things to look at is how much are you making as a percentage of your day job? For example do you make $60,000 (yr.) at your present employment and income from your business is equal to $30,000 a year?
This would require a serious life style change and a big sacrifice. Or perhaps you make $35,000 a year and the
income from your business is $40,000. It would seem as if everything would be great.
Here are some more questions for you BEFORE you tell your company exactly what you think:
1. Are you customers regular? And dependable?
2. Is your income residual? Meaning if you’re not actively selling something will you still have income from your product or service?
3. Will you be able to pay your bills from your business?
If you can answer YES to all of these questions- CONGRATULATIONS you are on your way.
However, if you are like most startups your customer base is not solid just yet; at best you have a few clients perhaps every 6 to 8 months.
Starting your own business of nonprofit can be an extremely exciting time nonetheless; you want to be careful about how soon you quit your day job to pursue your business full time.
I love to share information and make sure everyone can make an informed decision. If you are just not sure where to go from here or if you are wondering exactly what do I need to do about those sporadic clients- contact

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
How many have us have said any of the following? :
· I want everything to be perfect
· I am a perfectionist and if it’s not perfect then I can’t do it?
· I need to have everything done before I ask someone to help me
Often times, using the statements above is just an excuse for not accomplish something, it is a fear of actually having to do something and then to be criticized for what you have done.
I can absolutely guarantee you that you will never start! Perfect, when you’re starting a business or a nonprofit, does not exist.
Whenever we start something we have to be open to making mistakes and accepting that things may be less perfect. The important part is just STARTING!
Waddell Consulting Services can help you get started and understand that you can achieve goals on your way to perfect.
Family, Friend, Co-worker, Neighbors you can use a ton of names but eventually you will need to ask someone a question and unfortunately the family and friend sector is NOT going to have the most reliable answer.
Consulting or business coaching offers you the opportunity to talk with a professional who can objectively discuss your idea, give you feedback and suggestions. I have been through the process and I will have answers to your question.
Coaching allows you to ask any question, give you direction and most of all you are accountable to someone. Often times, we have great ideas of starting a business or a nonprofit but when it comes to implementing them, we fall short!
I have been there! I understand the frustration of knowing that you could truly do something great but being so exhausted that mentally and physically you don’t have the energy to complete it.
Waddell Consulting Services can offer that one-on-one session that you need to get your ideas started. Or perhaps you need someone who will hold you accountable as well as give that extra push you need to carry out your dreams.
It is my passion and it brings me great joy to watch other people succeed and to give some helpful information and direction along the way.
I look forward to listening to you and providing the direction and support you need to get started on making your ideas a reality!

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.
Contact Waddell Consulting Services today for your FREE 30 MINUTE CONSULTATION and let me give some clarity and ease for you along your journey of becoming the best business owner and community outreach program!
Has anyone ever asked you this question before? What do you know? Of course
you know something that’s why they asked you! RIGHT?
So now that we have established that you know something what are you going to
do with what you know?
Alright if you haven’t figured it out by now I love to start with steps-sometimes you can receive information and still have no idea what to do first!
So first, get those ideas down on paper. What is that everyone always calls you for? Perhaps your talent is fixing something, helping someone organize their home, writing… whatever it may be put it on paper.
If this list is large narrow it down to the top 5. Now we are ready start!!!
What can you do with those ideas? Are they business worthy or are they ideas that are service based for a nonprofit?
Let’s be honest as long as you continue to talk about it… it will never happen. Eventually if you want something to happen you have to put some action behind it.
Don’t be afraid to do something and get yourself out there! What is the worst that can happen? You have an awesome idea and everyone is now paying you for what you know!!!
Work is required in order to accomplish your dreams!
Waddell Consulting Services is here to help you navigate and understand what you need to do.

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.

I look forward to working with you achieve your dreams !!!
Entrepreneurship is an amazing thing. It is time consuming, requires dedication and sacrifice AND it requires money!
First, let me start by just stating some obvious facts:
· You cannot receive money for a business – IF YOU NEVER SET UP A BUSINESS
· Money is NOT going to drop out of the sky into your lap
· Finding a grant is HARD work and it doesn’t stop with just one – you have to keep looking
Now that I have your attention let me explain a few things: Before you can start making money you do have to have some type of structure in place to receive the money you want to make.
Would you give money to someone who asked for it but had no proof that they were actually a legal business?
I always get a question that starts out…I want you to find me a grant to open my business. My answer will always be absolutely! However, are you willing to do the work and pay the fees that it cost to set up a non-profit? If
the answer is YES then we have a great starting point. If the answer is fees? Work? Then we need to start at the beginning!
No one can promise you that they will get receive grant money UNLESS they are actually giving you the money!
If you have been trying to do this on your own and it’s been over a year and still no progress then you need to contact Waddell Consulting Services!
Let me take a look at what has already been established and give you some direction on where you need to go. OR if you just have the ideas and the thought of not having money has stopped you from going any further…
