5 Things I Wish I Knew Before I Started My Business And How You Can Benefit From My Ignorance

In 2008 when I started to explore the world of entrepreneurship I was ignorant.

Now I don’t mean that I was an idiot or a fool (although those words might not be far from the truth in some instances). I just mean that I was unaware of all of the things that present-day Eva (not sure why I just referred to myself in 3rd person) knows when it comes to starting and growing a profitable business. 

But that’s to be expected, right? I mean no one wakes up a master of his or her craft. It takes persistent work and practice to see the results you want. It usually also takes mentorship, money and time to do them at a steady pace so that you can turn a profit and do more good.

So 2008 Eva had none of those (there goes that 3rd person speak again). But what I did have was an idea, a laptop, and a determination to launch a successful business that would change the wooorld!!! (Sorry. I got a little carried away there.) Fast forward seven years and I’m just now seeing the results I thought I would have seen in 2009. Talk about taking the long way around!

The truth is that whether you’re a intrapreneur, entrepreneur, solopreneur, running an NGO or opening a private practice, starting a successful business can be hard. No matter how much you learn on your journey there’s always more to know. At times it seems like you might never know enough.

That’s not true of course, but it always helps if you have a compass to point you in the right direction and a map to let you know how close you are to your goal. So in the spirit of not wanting your business path to take as long as mine did, here are five things (it’s the short list) I wish I would have known before I started out on my journey and a gift (at the end) to help you fair better time on yours.

Money: What Rich Social Workers Do To Make More

Ask any random social worker on the street what the number one complaint in social work is and they’ll say it’s the money (or, rather, the lack thereof).

This is not a new complaint and not likely one to go away in the next several years. Social work has long been associated with volunteerism and poverty and it seems that the more good we try to do, the harder it is to make a living doing it. Continue reading
