We chatted with Eurydice Moore on our She Boss Talk YouTube Channel this week and she told us her really inspiring story. She revealed how God and her faith led her to entrepreneurship and how she managed to succeed at helping other people succeed. Her story is truly one you should check out. Throughout the conversation, she shared some really important business lessons about entrepreneurship and we picked three to share with you. We hope these tips help you on your entrepreneurial journey.
1. Start With What You Have
Eurydice didn’t start with a fancy home office, According to her, “I was in an apartment and I had a kitchen table, a chair, and a cell phone, a legal pad and a pen. There was no computer”. She went to the library to do client work.
Even though Eurydice eventually got a computer, she didn’t wait on it to start her journey. One of the most important business lessons is starting with what you have because it will teach you to be resourceful. In entrepreneurship, resourcefulness is an important trait.
Think about what is stopping you from starting. Is it that you don’t have an office? Do you feel unprepared? The truth is, there is really never a perfect time to start anything. Your mind can come up with an excuse if you think long enough. Look at the resources you have available. Challenge yourself today, to simply start with what you have.
2. Put In The Work
If you’re a person of faith, you may be doing a lot of praying and waiting for guidance from God about your business. That’s great, continue to do that. In addition to utilizing your faith, you have to put in some work on your end. As Eurydice puts it, “Faith without works is dead”.
We all want to be successful in business but it takes a lot of work. You have to be realistic and assess your situation. You may find that you have to be working on your business after work or on the weekends. Maybe, you may have to take a course or hire someone. Do what you need to do, trust God, and success will follow you.
3. Collaboration is Key
Even though we sound like a broken record, collaboration is really important. The truth is, we don’t know everything and there is so much we can learn from others. At the same time, there is so much others can learn from us.
The key is not to collaborate with everyone for the sake of collaborating. Eurydice suggests using discernment. You have to assess who you’re trying to collaborate with because things can get ugly fast. A tip that was shared during the conversation is to make sure you have a written agreement or contract. It can save you a lot of trouble later on.
As you embark on your journey, ask yourself this question, “Is this my calling?”. If you’re not sure, ask for guidance in figuring out what exactly you should be using your talents and gifts for. Once you’ve figured that out, one of the most important business lessons we could give you is: start. There is no better time than the present. We know some people may be completely lost when it comes to entrepreneurship and that’s why we have the Business Start Up Checklist. At some point, you may want to do up a simple business plan and calculate your budget.
We wish you the best on your entrepreneurial journey!
