Throughout the month of February, my company AMW Site Designs highlighted several successful entrepreneurs and even highlighted a successful black owned business that dated back to the 1900’s. History is a great opportunity to reflect on the triumphs, lessons learned, and failures made by those that have come before us. Here are some lessons learned that you can apply as you work to grow your small business into a successful venture.
Many small businesses are the result of a hobby that in time turns into a profitable business and there are many ways that you can do it in a way that works for you. If you have a full-time job and you want to continue to excel in your designated career field, you can choose to remain part time for the foreseeable future and only take on a limited number of clientele and projects. If you want to go bigger and have a five year plan, there are still ways to do this while still maintaining balance in other areas of your life. Whether you are looking to turn the money you make on the side into something more substantial or simply transition into charging for your talents, here are some signs that it is time to turn your hobby into a money-making venture.
Have you ever heard the phrase, “there’s an app for that”? Well it’s definitely true when it comes to efficient ways to run your business. Whether it is a CRM tool to manage prospects or automating your social media posts, there is either an app or a productivity tool that can make your life easier as a business owner.
