It’s that time of the year.
Four months ago, I set a goal for myself. The goal was to have my own small business set up and running and making some kind of cash by this time of year, just enough money to be able to leave my job in February.
Sadly, it looks like that isn’t going to happen by February after all, so I’m moving the goalpost, but not giving up on my goal. I have decided that I have less than two months to start generating some side income.
I’m aware that there is no time to waste, but with the holidays coming up, there are going to be some engagements I will not be able to blow off, and some others in which I will actually want to participate.
We are going slowly but surely… I say “we” because my brother is also helping out. He has become a valuable partner in the operation of things.
We are both working our day jobs and working on our project on nights and weekends.
It looks like I will not be able to quit in February, but if the business is up and running by then, it will be a great start. It will be a matter of months before we start making some money.
Have you started a small business before?
How long did it take you to get it up and running?
Of the entire process, what was the hardest part for you?
