Does Your Start-up Budget Scare you?

IMG_20190829_071536_481I logged onto Facebook this morning and I clicked on the memories link and there was my Start-up budget from my Dream Location.

As I looked at the budget, I thought about how scary it was (back in 2014) to consider opening up a location with a start-up budget of 10,000.

In fact, I can remember laying in my bed during the start-up process  worried about where the money was going to come from.

Furthermore, I was considering expanding at a time when the business was already not doing to good.

Five year later, I can honestly say this, that was one of the best business decision that I could have ever made. “Never consult your bank account when it is time to grow, Consult your Faith.”

Taking a look back. My home daycare start-up budget was only $600 and that was back in 1998 and it took just as much Faith back then to leave a job with great benefits to start my own business.

As you can see, it doesn’t matter how much it cost to get starter, the real question is, Do you have the Faith to believe that you can do it?

Are you considering starting up a home daycare or a center? Are you thinking about expanding?  Does the fear of not having enough money cause you to shrink back?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, I want to invite you to contact me today to schedule a 1-hour Start-up coaching session with me.

I have discovered that when it scares you, you probably should give it a try. In fact, all you need is the right counsel, Big Faith and determination!

3 Ways to Activate Your Faith for Business Building Success!

Keep Building, Keep Dreaming and Keep Succeeding….

I hope that you have been enjoying my blog series: Building Your Child Care Business by Faith. In fact, I hope that you have been inspired to either: Start up your child care business or Keep growing your Business.

Moreover, I have found that when we have dreams and goals; thoughts of self doubt or fear will keep us in our comfort zone. Also, Fear of what could go wrong, causes us to shrink back and stay right where we are.

I can remember, when I had the opportunity to move my Center into a larger location. I was so excited to finally have a building where I could have infants, toddlers, preschoolers and school age children all in one building.

However, when I drove up to the building, I was worried about how I would get 99 kids enrolled in the center and I was concerned about managing more employees.

I was so worried about the wrong things. I should have been thinking about how much more money the business would be making and how I was getting ready to meet the need of child care in that community.

When your Faith is small, you will second guest yourself or even talk yourself out of an opportunity that is great for your Business.

As I began to activate my Faith, the Best was yet to come…

Today I want to share with you, 3 ways to activate your Faith for Business Building Success!

  1. Get your mind together! If you tend to talk yourself out of an opportunity, its time to recondition your mind. The moment that those self sabotaging thoughts enter your mind say aloud: I can do this. I will have what I need to start or grow my business. You will find that your thoughts will come in alignment with what you say.
  2. Check out your belief system. Do you believe that you can do it? Do  you believe that you can handle the success? I know this for sure, we tend to have what we believe that we can have. So if you believe it, you will achieve it!
  3. Its time to change the way that you Talk. Eight years ago, I bought a book titled, The Law of Confession by Dr. Bill Winston. That book changed my Life. In fact, after reading that book, I learned that your words create your reality. Also, your life will only go in the Direction of the words that you speak out of your mouth. Now before I speak, I consider the Law of confession in my personal life and in my Business. When I found my dream location, I walked up to the door, I placed my hand on the door and I said: This will be the next home of Learning Days! Within a week, My lease proposal was accepted and we moved in the building within 90 days.

As you can see, walking by Faith in Business is a result of things that you cannot see: How you think, what you believe and the words that you speak. Moreover, Faith is simply the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things that you cannot see. So what are you hoping for?

I shared those Faith building principles with you, to get you motivated to Do Business by Faith. Furthermore, I believe that it is your Faith that will empower you to Succeed in Business!
