Can you be self disciplined with your time?
Your time is now worth money but you will find that some people will not value your time. The main offender will be your family and friends who believe that you only work part time and are sat at home watching daytime TV.
You need to be self disciplined with yourself and create boundaries with your friends and family so that they too appreciate your time.
Do you have support from your family and friends?
By having their support, you will be motivated to make your business a success. You may need to make some sacrifices with your time in the early days which will be easier if they understand why your business is important to you and how they can help.
Have you conducted all the research?
