Want to Start A Business? 3 Things You Must Consider

In the first few months of the year, many people consider starting their own businesses. A number are prompted by their New Year’s resolutions! Unfortunately however, most people who have this idea more often than not end up where countless other New Year’s resolutions end up – nowhere! It’s true that business start-ups or the intention for them don’t last for a number of reasons, but the primary reason that many start-up initiatives don’t survive, is because of a lack of information and preparation. If you have decided to take the brave plunge as an entrepreneur, then it’s important to bear a few things in mind.

Firstly, and above all else, you need to be honest with yourself. It’s important to think very carefully about why you want to start up a business, what you expect from the business, and what, and how much you are willing to do to make your business a success. If you are solely focusing on the desired end outcome- for example, of making a lot of money, and you are avoiding thinking about how much work it takes for a small business to survive, then the odds are already stacked against you.

Secondly, you have to recognize that business success is largely about marketing, conversions to sales and numbers. If you are a start-up, you may not have the funds to hire people to take care of these necessities for you, and if this is the case you have to be prepared to learn a sufficient amount about each key aspects of the business. You’ll need to become familiar with branding, marketing, promotions, networking, basic book-keeping and sales. You’ll have to learn all you can about customer service and you’ll have to be prepared to become familiar with all the afore-mentioned elements, even if you are hiring or outsourcing work (which is easy and reasonably-priced enough to do these days), in order to be able to oversee and direct activities, and to move closer to ensuring start-up success. If you aren’t prepared to do these things, or if you don’t at the very least have the right attitude about it, then sadly, your start-up is likely to join the statistics of those that fail.

Thirdly, whilst it is important to learn all you can about every aspect of your business strategically, operationally and functionally, you need to recognize that you can’t do it alone. Whether you have decided to start-up business while working, or are committed to it full-time, the expertise, insight and advice of others is invaluable. Wherever you can, look for like-minds. Network where possible and appropriate, read and join forums and groups and find a mentor as well as a good friend who will hold you accountable, but also act as a sounding board and trusted advisor.

I really hope that the three considerations that I’ve suggested don’t scare you off for wanting to start-up a business. If they have, then I suppose that’s because you possibly weren’t aware of them, and you should see it as a great thing that you now are! Have an open mind, consider the points carefully, prepare yourself mentally and you’ll be ready to step out with your best foot forward! Good luck to you!

How to Know What to Post on Social Media As a Christian Business Owner

Social Media is an integral part of our business lives today whether we want to admit it or not. If you are a Christian and have a business, you must be on social media in order to be found and connect to your customers. The digital age that we live in creates a ‘perceived’ value on social media so even if we don’t think it will work for our business, we still must have it in order to be seen as a business who is trying to care for their customers.

With that being said, what should a Christian business owner post on social media? The easy answer is the same thing everyone else posts. Family updates, interesting things you find, pictures of you doing interesting things, etc. As a business owner, post relevant things to your customers. It does not need to be all about your business. Remember, social media is for your customers and you want to connect with them.

We try to separate ourselves as Christians, but we are still living in the same world with everyone else. The Bible says “do not love the world or the things in the world.” (I John2:15) We see the same things everyone else sees, we just see it through the eyes of God. We have a filter that sees the world as fallen and in need of a savior.

Let’s take a rainbow. A scientist says that it is water molecules reflecting light. That is true, but there is no meaning behind that statement. A Christian may see that same rainbow and think about how a Creator God made water form in just the right way to reveal a rainbow to you at that very moment. Do you see the difference?

Let me give another example. I grew up in West Texas. We have some of the greatest sunsets, I may be biased. As I grew up, I found out that a sunset with all the reds and oranges is mainly due to the pollution in the air. That could have warped my view of sunsets forever until I translated it with my Christian world view. I now see sunsets as God taking something horrible we did with pollution and showing His Glory by shining the sun through it at just the right angle.

Posting on social media is not about trying to post Christian Bible verses all the time. It is about revealing God in the common, mundane parts of life. My wife would say that God makes the boring awesome. It would be great if we all lived our lives awesomely boring.

Now let me share some quick tips about posting on social media as a Christian business owner:

· Do post the awesomely boring things where you saw God reveal something about his nature.

· Do post stories about what God is doing in your life.

· Do post stories about what God is doing in your business.

· Do share pictures that encourage your spirit.

· Do post what is true. (Don’t post gossip, even if it is veiled in prayer.)

· Do keep your mind on God and His overall purpose. (Don’t get caught up on arguments. Arguments on social media never bring people to Christ.)

· Tell stories that build a bridge of relationships.

· Treat social media like real life. Unless you go around quoting scriptures all day, don’t just post scriptures on social media.

Here’s an interesting thought: Social media is a digital version of you and your personality. If you have a business on social media, you are representing the culture within your business based on what you post. Keep in mind that everything you post is online for everyone to see. Simply ask, “If I was in real life in a room full of people, would I say this or show this photo to them all?”
