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
What are you afraid of? What keeps you up at night? Is it the thought that you will never truly accomplish your dreams? Or that you are accomplishing someone else’s dreams?
“If you don’t build your dream, someone else will hire you to help them build theirs” Dhirubhai Ambani
I love this quote!
It really is that simple.
So what are you afraid of? Perhaps that you will succeed and someone will actually require something of you? As long as you are a dreamer and continue to talk about what you are going to do… then you are safe... no one will expect you do anything at all.
Often we are afraid of ourselves and success. It is the reason we procrastinate, why we criticize others when they finally start achieving their dreams, it is the reason we are 20 years down the road with a great idea and that’s all we have - an idea.
So what do you do when you are afraid? First, you have to decide if the fear is going continue to stop you or if you are going to do something about it?
Often the first step is the hardest it is with that step that all other steps are defined.
I have been there and understand that fear- that someone may actually look to you to do what you say you can do! However, if you are confident enough to read this- then you are confident enough to schedule your FREE 30 MINUTE CONSULTATION!

This question is so important that everything that you do from this moment on will hinge on it! Do you believe?
Do you believe that you can start a business? Do you believe that you can be better than what you are now? Do you believe in yourself?
Ultimately this answer determines the rest of your life!
You have to believe in what you are doing before anybody else can. This means when feel like giving up, you keep going. When you have no idea which way to go, you keep going!
I will share a personally story. I am a Domestic Violence survivor. I could not find one attorney in the city I was living in to represent me. Everyone said no, and told me good luck on finding someone who will take your case. After about a month of hearing no, I decided that I would JUST DO IT myself!
I printed and learned the laws on Domestic Violence and what I needed to do and I represented myself in court-complete with documentation and findings.
I simply BELIEVED IN MYSELF!
When you believe in yourself others may not understand and some may not take the journey with you. It is at that point that you must BELIEVE IN YOURSELF !
I understand the frustration of not knowing or perhaps starting to doubt yourself and your dream! I’m here to
tell you that I BELIEVE IN YOU!
It cost nothing to schedule your appointment for your FREE CONSULTATION.
It may be the very thing you need to renew your dream, your passion and to recharge and say I BELIEVE!
So you are not in your 20’s or 30’s ok your close to your mid 40’s or perhaps early 50’s. GREAT! Truly, when starting your own business age does not matter – you are the one in charge! What does matter is what you are going
to offer your potential customer.
It really doesn’t matter what age you are starting the important thing is that you are starting now! A plan of action is vital to anything that you want to do….
Now, what if you’re so young you don’t think anyone will take you seriously? The fact is that you are offering a product or service to your customers that someone is not. Or you are offering it differently than what your competitors are.
In the beginning it will be a challenge to set yourself apart however, with some hard work and dedication you will do it.
Don’t let age stop you from pursing your passion, following your dreams and living a fulfilled life. Don’t live with the regret of never trying!
Contact Waddell Consulting Services today and together we can get you started, help you stay focused and meet your goal of being a business owner!
Here are some great motivational thoughts to help get you in the right frame of mind:
Think of what is possible, instead of what isn’t!
The success in my life is a reflection of my successful attitude.
I Persevere, I am relentless, I persist, I keep going!
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.
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!
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.

Have you ever had the following thoughts?
· One day I am going to shock everybody with my great ideas….
· I would start today BUT I am so tired from work ….
· After the kids go to bed that’s my only time to relax
· One day I’m going to start that business as soon as I get the money
Well I am here to tell you NONE of those things will help you accomplish your dreams and most of all you will
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.
Procrastination is just that fear! It only takes you deciding that today you will do something to make that dream a reality!
I firmly believe that if you just do ONE THING DIFFERENT than you did from yesterday you will achieve your
