A Guide To Designing A Business That Aligns With You Perfectly
If you want a successful business, one of the best things you can do is design one that aligns with you perfectly. Everybody has different passions, interests, and goals for the future. The key is to start assessing yours now, so you can come up with a business idea that aligns with you perfectly.
Here are some questions you should ask yourself that will help you to get that business started:
Why Do You Want To Start A Business?
Your why is possibly the most important thing you’ll figure out. Coming up with this at the start of your journey can help to ensure you stay on the right path, and true to yourself. Think about who you want to help, what this means for you, what sort of change you’re looking to make in the world, and consider how you can make it a ‘why’ statement.
Your statement should be clear and concise, and just one sentence. This will be the statement you come back to throughout your entrepreneurial career.
Where Do You See Yourself In The Next 5-10 Years?
Think about where you’d like to be in the next 5-10 years. What sort of lifestyle would you like to be living? How much would you like to be working? How flexible would you like to be? How financially free? Have a picture in your head of where you’d like to be so you can build your business around that image, too. If you’d like to do as little as possible, you need to start your business with eventually hiring people to take over from you in mind.
What Are Your Passions, Interests, and Values?
Figure out what your passions, interests, and values are. Think about the things you’d do for free. The things that make you feel good, that you want to talk about all day. Even the things you’re curious about. These are all clues for the type of business you should consider starting. If you’re interested in the transportation business, but you don’t know much about it, then you’ll need to look up the industry. You’ll need to find out all about Red Diesel, various suppliers, how much they cost to run, and more. Start doing your research to figure out whether one of your interests is worth pursuing further.
Who Do You Want To Work With?
People focused businesses are the most successful. Who do you want to work with? Know your audience and do as much research as you can so you can create the perfect business for them.
What Do You Want To Do Every Day?
Think about what you’d like to be doing every day. Would you like to be able to single handedly run your business operations, or would you like to have hundreds of employees who take care of all of that for you? Do you want to have the freedom to drop in and work when you please, safe in the knowledge that your business can run without you? Make sure you plan your business with this in mind.

Do you remember MySpace? Ok - I know I’m a millennial dinosaur as I’m approaching my 30s but back in the day MySpace.com was LIT! Having a huge friend list was pretty much equivalent to having 10K+ Instagram followers today. As we all know MySpace suddenly went away...
