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!

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!
Nothing is better than FREE –and who will know besides you and me?

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!
