This week was a major learning curve in getting started. Getting financing even government backed loans are tougher than trying to pull apart a well glued tenon joint, I was at the point that I was actually tired of my business.
After talking it over with one of my friends who helped run her husbands construction business she offered kinda one of the most powerful pieces of advice:- Go slow and build up your business and you won’t have to borrow !
Well I got to thinking 2 years of rewriting a business plan to suit some bank and loan proposals etc. Where could I been and why am I not there?
The answer is simple mismanagement of my time instead of building model furniture to demonstrate my skills and marketing my business I was writing proposals only to get turned down!!! Instead of calling to get sample doors and re-modelers who do kitchens I was calling to get financing. Instead of trying to build my business and cabinets I was trying to accomplish the wrong task!!! Things are changing rapidly as I am going back to my original plan and sticking to it. Sometimes it’s the little things that eat time up and profitability. I am not talking about house chores or honey do’s but by doing things that are not what we are supposed to be doing,and neglecting what really needs to be done. Shifting my focus may behold new avenues that I do not know about yet.
Until next week
