Top 3 Reasons Managers should buy a business

Are you having difficulty deciding to open or buy a business now? Is this something you have been talking about, thinking about, and planning for, but you just can’t seem to take the plunge?  Putting off a decision to start a business until “the time is right” has a huge cost. The cost of continuing down your miserable path or finding personal fulfillment through business ownership.

Most people who are looking to open a business are not happy in their current state of affairs. Yet, they procrastinate for various reasons and sometimes they never realize their full potential. There is no “perfect” time to start a business, however, if this is your dream, you must motivate yourself to move forward in order to see your dream come true.

Top 3 Reasons to buy a business now

Procrastination is expensive

The longer you delay, the longer it will be before you start seeing a return on your investment. For every day you put it off that is just one day longer till you can open your business and start to reap the rewards.  Sometimes people put off their decision because they feel they may be more prepared if they delay.  However, it can be like an artist when they paint a picture, it will never be complete – or an author whose writing is never good enough; push yourself to move forward and open the doors to your dreams. Don’t live an unfulfilled life.

Getting out of your comfort zone is empowering

Don’t let fear get in your way. Fear is another reason people put off their decision.  Fear of the unknown, fear of what might or might not happen.  The best way to get over the fear is to have a good plan, complete lots of research, learn as much as you can about managing a business, and obtain expert advice. Reading my book Franchising Without Fear is a great place to start. This book explains franchising and steps to use to help you find a business. Working with a franchise consultant is one of the best things you can do to take the guesswork out of the search. The Small Business Administration at gov provides a great deal of free services and information for those who want to start a business.

It’s also important to realize that everyone who starts a business deals with fear at some point.  Be aware that some anxiety and fear will occur and be prepared for it when it does, then move forward with your plans.

Rewards

Consider the rewards. Why do you want to own a business?  Most people want to control their destiny, be their own boss, build equity, and obtain more flexibility.  One of the most common reasons I hear is, “I want to work hard for myself, not someone else”.  Owning a business is hard work, yet very fulfilling for most people. Just ask someone who owns their business and you will find the majority would not have it any other way. If this is your dream and you have the skills and have prepared for your venture, don’t put it off till tomorrow.  Tomorrow may never come.
