Signs that you’re finally ready to start your own business

Choosing to start your own business is not a decision you’ll want to take lightly, but at the same time, you don’t want a potentially life-changing opportunity to pass you by. How can you know if you’re finally ready? Some of the following can be clear-cut signs:

1. You’ve got a pretty solid idea or concept that you know will be a success.

 

2. You have the passion and drive for the product you want to sell, or the service you’re going offer.

 

3. It’s also very important to have an effective business plan in place, and you’ve got the logistics all figured out.

 

4. You know you’ll have competition, but you’re sure you can do things just as good—if not better.

 

5. You’re ready to be the one who calls the shots.

 

6. You’re confident in your success…

 

7. But you have a backup plan ready, just in case.

 

8. You’re ambitious, yet realistic. You’ve got goals that you know are attainable and you know you’ll work hard to achieve them.

 

9. You’ve got the financial aspects of starting a business all figured out.

 

10. You’re also prepared for setbacks and other bumps in the road that you could easily encounter, especially as a new business owner. But you won’t give up. #Perseverance

 

11. And most importantly of all, you truly believe in yourself.

10 hilarious tweets from people who hate their jobs 

A lot of us have had those days when we simply can’t stand our jobs—or, you know, have these feelings every day. Whether it’s the industry you work in or the specific company you work at, you probably understand exactly what some of these Twitter users are going through:

1. When your coworkers are kinda horrible.

 


2. Although it’s good to be dedicated to doing your job well, you’re just dedicated to truly despising it.

 


3. When you have this same fantasy every single day. Every few minutes.

 


4. Because 
nap time at the office really should be a thing.

 


5. When you need daily “therapy.”

 


6. Because you’d literally rather do anything else than actually deal with anything work-related.

 


7. Because you’re a fan of eating and not being homeless.

 


8. Because you seriously thought your day off would never, ever come.

 

 

9. Those alarms, though.

 


10. That slightly comforting feeling you get when you realize other people do have worse jobs than you.

Can making some extra cash really be this easy?

Just about anyone could use some extra cash—whether there are bills to pay off, expenses to catch up on, or large purchases to be made. If you’re looking for simple ways to make a little extra money, try the following:

1. Have a garage sale

 Like the old saying goes, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Really, you’d be surprised at what people are willing to buy—even the type of stuff that you think has seen better days and should just get thrown out. Even if you can’t get much for some of your old stuff, a few bucks is better than nothing at all. Go through your belongings and figure out what you don’t want or need anymore, and have a garage sale one weekend. This isn’t only a way to make some extra money, but it helps you de-clutter and get more organized, so that’s an added bonus.

 

2. Sell your stuff online

 Whether your garage sale didn’t totally go as planned and you’ve got some (or all) of your items left, or you’ve decided to just skip the garage sale completely, consider selling your unwanted stuff online. It’s easy, convenient, and you can cast a much wider net, especially if you offer worldwide shipping. For those really heavy items, consider using websites like Craigslist and eBay to list your items online, yet still arrange for local pickups. For smaller and shippable items, you can also use eBay, and Amazon is another good choice to consider.

 

3. Create a blog

Is there a subject you’re passionate and knowledgeable about? Consider starting a blog and write, write, write. Through ads and affiliate marketing, your blog can eventually start making money, even long after you’ve abandoned it. Bear in mind that it might not be much and it might take a long time for a blog to be profitable, but it can be a good source of some passive income, especially if you’re writing about something you love anyway.

 

4. Go undercover as a secret shopper

Got a lot of opinions and feelings? You could get paid for it! One way is through secret shopping, which allows participants to take on as many (or as few) gigs as available. With secret shopping, you’ll pose as any other regular customer (cue James Bond theme song), and report back to the company you’re working for. You could be shopping at the mall or eating at a restaurant; the assignments and specific instructions will vary.

5. Join a focus group

Another way to make some extra cash by providing your feedback is by participating in a focus group. You’ll get the opportunity to test out products and offer your honest opinion, all while making some additional money.

 

6. Offer to babysit and/or pet-sit

If you know you’ll be home anyway, you can make a little extra cash by telling your neighbors that you’re available for babysitting or pet sitting. But, be warned: depending on the pet/child, this can be incredibly simple, or a total nightmare.

 

7. Monetize one of your hobbies

Do you have a hobby that could potentially make you some money—for example, you make the best chocolate chip cookies in town? This can be an easy way to make some extra cash on the side without putting forth much effort, since you’ll be doing something you love (and you’re good at) anyway. But if you plan on trying to turn your hobby into a full-on business venture, this will require a lot more dedication and more of an investment. While it could be something worth doing, take the stress out of it by starting off slowly and thinking more along the lines of side-project. If you’re just doing it for some extra money, rather than income you depend on to survive, it can be a much more simplified and enjoyable endeavor.
