I spoke with my local Enterprise Board this week and decided to “Make The Jump” into business. Daunting prospect! You feel that you have all your ducks in a row, then you realise that you have to actually do it in Public!
Making the Jump really is quite an appropriate descriptive. You have built an idea from nothing and then put a floor in each time you have learnt something new. As things get easier and more orderly in your original concept – you put in a lift. You balance the floors and shed more light on each new idea with windows, a clearer idea of the direction of your concept and finally you reach a point where you can build no higher (straight away) and you have to move from concept/idea to actually doing it.
I feel ready to start now because I have set up the business to such an extent that if I didn’t, I would have wasted my time over the past few months! I completed the Start Your Own Business Course with Wicklow Enterprise Board earlier in the year and have the time now to dedicate to it. I appreciate that it will be a learning process doing it from here, but as an Irish Start Up, I can only learn by doing and I have other business contacts who can guide me along the way.
The things I don’t lack is determination and experience. I need to find my weaknesses and build them up and push on with my strengths. Here’s to the future, please join me and we can develop together.
