Great Things Start Small
Starting Small to Growing Big
Having big dreams is part of being an entrepreneur, and there is nothing wrong with that. The world of business may be challenging, but even so, your dreams can come true.
Sometimes, we want to rush things and start projects with a bang, and although that may make for great memories or a fun story, it is likely to be a short one. Great things take time to build, so starting small is not a negative thing; it’s a relatively positive one.
Starting big may sound appealing, but when you set the bar too high from the start, you set yourself up for a fall. Starting small, on the other hand, gives you a lot of room for growth —room to think big and grow big— in a likely more sustainable fashion.
Ideas must have an evolutionary process. The problem with “big” is that it tends to lack clarity in that regard. “Big” is usually a result, not a journey. When we jump to that end of the spectrum, we become impatient. It’s all about getting there fast!
Slow and Steady Wins the Race
Indeed, you’ve heard that saying before. There’s the old “Rome wasn’t built in a day” or “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” There are many ways to say the same thing: starting small is ok, but beyond that, it is the recommended approach.
Your dreams may seem huge now, but don’t let that discourage or intimidate you. Instead, let that become your motivation. Don’t be afraid to take that first step that will get you to your desired destination. Start your independent insurance agency today.
