Becoming an Entrepreneur

Becoming an Entrepreneur

Wow, what a year! After spending nearly 10 years in Corporate America, I finally decided to take my “leap of faith” and start my own business. There comes a point in all of our lives, where we make important decisions without the knowing the outcome. Well, I was at that point. Over the years, I was able to hone my skills in marketing and held various positions from brand management to corporate marketing and communication functions.

Three years ago, after creating hundreds of marketing plans, a light bulb went on in my head. Why create plans for one organization…versus creating for multiple organizations? Why not share my “out of the box” ideas with individuals outside of the organization I was working for? I guess you could say, I had my aha moment.

Why not start your own business? But… (yes, there is always a but!) how do I get started?

Google is your friend. Yes, I know growing up I constantly heard…not everything on the Internet is accurate. But, finding thousands of search results for “How to start your own business” is euphoric. I began to read a ton of thought leadership articles, followed major influencers on social media, and inspirational entrepreneurs on Instagram. Think I’m kidding? Take a look at my Instagram page. With extensive research, I realized, yes this is possible! So….I got to work. Filed my paperwork, searched for an accountant and did all the boring but necessary steps to officially receive my limited liability company. Powered By Reese became official!

Fast forward three years later – 2016, I was still working for a corporation. What was I afraid of? Failure. Did you know that Failure is the #1 human fear? At least I knew I wasn’t alone. How could I shake this fear of failure and move on with my business?

Keep your family and friends close. I honestly did not realize how much my circle of influence would be so supportive. I spoke with my family and friends about my business ideals and they listened. They all asked the same question, “What are you waiting for?!”. They were right. After some easy convincing from family and friends, and deep searching within myself…I soon realized, I was ready to STOP DREAMING and START DOING!
