Welcome back everybody to the Cashflow 2 Freedom podcast. I’m your host, AJ Osborne.
Today I wanted to give those who are starting out a view behind the veil. There’s a huge misconception that successful business owners and investors know everything about their chosen professions. Yes of course, they know a lot and they absolutely have to in order to realize the level of success that they enjoy. However, they don’t know everything and they certainly didn’t know everything starting out.
All too often we get caught up with this idea - as we start out, we have a ton of questions. We don’t know how so much of the front end or back end of the business (or both) work and operate. We don’t know how to plan for the future, to market, to develop ideas, to build industry infrastructure, and so on. Unfortunately, this lack of knowledge and understanding leaves a lot of people out there at square one. But you have to remember, everyone starts at square one.
Don’t pass up your goals because you get caught in the mindset of, “If only I knew exactly how to get to x, y, z… THEN I could do what I want. But I can’t.”
Learning and solving problems is the heart of entrepreneurship. It’s ok if you don’t know everything, we simply have to learn, solve problems, and drive forward. We have to create our success. Of course you won’t know everything, especially starting out. You won’t know everything when you’ve been in the industry for decades. The world changes, business is dynamic and ever changing, and you’ll always have to learn, grow, and adapt.
Thanks for listening everybody. Enjoy the journey and we’ll see you next time,
