“Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful. ”

- Mark Victor Hansen

I could stand to read this Mark Victor Hansen quote once a week. How about you? How many big decision are you putting off until everything is perfect? Until every possible detail lines up?

Let's say your goal is to take your family on vacation 100 miles away. How would you do it? First you would investigate the resort. Next you would ask your boss for a few days off, book your reservation, pack, print out your maps, fill up your tank, check the tires and fluids, load up and go.

It wouldn't make any sense to get your entire family in the minivan only to sit idling in your driveway until every single traffic signal between you and your final destination turned green! If that was your plan you would never go anywhere! This example seems ridiculous, yet this is the same mentality that many a would be entreprenuer adopts for determining the steps "needed" to get into business for themselves. This is why so many people you meet only talk about their dream of owning their own business.

Be bold. Owning your own business means you will navigate through unexpected traffic patterns. Be prepared for the ride of your life...adventure is waiting for you to claim it.
