If you’re having trouble finding a job, maybe someone is telling you something? Maybe you should start your own business? Why not?

When I first started my business, The Palumbo Company, it was very excited and scary at the same time. I believed in myself, but there were a lot of unknowns. Mainly, will this work?

If you’re thinking about starting your own business, but you’re scared about what “could” happen, don’t be. I found that the unknowns and the doubts just motivated me and it will with you, too.

The first time you go an entire month without relying on anyone else for your existence, will be the best month of your life. Then when you go your first year without relying on anyone, that’s nirvana! Nothing is better!

Don’t focus on what “could” happen if you fail, focus on what “will” happen when you succeed! Every business owner goes into business with some doubts, so if that’s what you’re feeling this is totally normal. There are always some unknowns when you take on a new venture, but that’s what makes it exciting (and scary).

If you’re having a hard time finding a job, start your own! People do it everyday, why shouldn’t you? I would rather have you work for yourself than work for someone else, even if it’s for less money! Being in control and doing what you want to do. Is there anything better? Total freedom! You can do it! Go for it! I hope this helps.

Good luck to you!
