Instead of asking “when should I start” you first need to answer why you want to start your own business. Are you doing it because you’re running away from something or are you looking to start a business, so you’ll have something worth running towards?
Starting your own business and working from home is not as easy as some people make it look. You must be willing to put in 10 or even 20-hour days sometimes. If you want to succeed, you must be willing to work harder than you’ve ever worked in your life. And the reality is, even when you work your butt off, you might fail. But it’s the failures and the bumps in the road that drive an entrepreneur even harder the next time. The things that hold most people back are the things that push the willing entrepreneur harder, faster, and with more passion the next time.
If you think you have what it takes, here are a few pointers to help you get started with the best chance of success.
