I want to start my own business

I really wanted to put up a mini grocery, but the question is how? All of the negative thoughts was already been given to me. some would say you cannot do it, some would say where are you going to get your capital, some would say you will just risk money on it especially if you do not have your own money to make it and other say's oh! poor girl you will never make it just be contented to be an employee. Too many negative and only a few positive was being advised. That advise was from my friend, she said go on girl... you can do it. So from then on I said ok let me show others that I can do something on my own. I borrowed money from lending company to add my own saved money, I closed my eyes and resigned from my present employeer ( anyway that job is giving me too much stress that I losses weight a lot ) from the day I resigned I told myself, here I am just go on and don't look back. Actually, from the first day where I talk to the landlord about the place that I wanted to rent, she immediately close the deal and give me the keys. Inspired enough, I started designing my place to what was already designed in my dreams. It was just like I know already what Im doing because I have done it in my dreams. Atlast the opening day, I invited people to see what I have started. those who give me negative advices ( too many ) and those who give me positive ( a few, actually only one ). Then my day had started, actually they told me goodluck but I know deep inside their not sure If I could. Then after 6 months of struggling, my ups and downs and everything, at lasts!! I knew it, my business is going steady. That's how positive thoughts complimented with action works. Know what its really going okay today,, I actually brought my own laptop from my business savings. To top it off, I found a money making websites which could help add extra money to my pocket. What i want to tell anybody now is, Please if someone told you " You can't do it " particularly if you really want to pursue your dream, dont believe and agree at once, do not be afraid to try because it's the only way to find out and bring out the best in you. Believe me, attached in your dream a sincere prayer, keep a little faith in hand, trust GOD, trust your capacity, do something and give your best in the end you're success is waiting. Goodluck, share to me your related experience, it's really nice to be inspired by true story right?

Excellent advice my friend, and I'm so glad you're making a success of your business. All too often, people want to give you negative advice, and put obstacles in your way, but if you really want something enough, you will work hard to prove the negative thinkers wrong and reach your goal!!! I always encourage such positive thinking. If a person has a dream, we should never cloud that dream for them with negative thoughts. We should encourage them and support them all the way to the finish line. Congratulations my friend, well done, and all Brightest Blessings for the future.

Wow, that is great. You took a risk and it is paying off. Who knows, you maybe able to turn it into a franchise and become real rich. Remember, treat your regular customers well. Learn their names and they will be happy and send other people to you. That is the best way to build up a business, with loyal customers.
