326: Listener Gets Business Advice From James

Are you interested in starting your own business? Many people are, and they often struggle trying to do it all themselves with no experience. This often times leads to people feeling overwhelmed and deflated, which causes them to put off taking action.

The truth is you don’t have to start from scratch. No matter where you live you can find people who are more knowledgeable than you, and more experienced than you. You just need to to seek them out.

One thing you can do is try to find a meetup in your area of other people who are in the same type of business you are. Chances are, no matter where you are, there is something going on close by. And if there isn’t, then take action. Start your own meetup and bring other people closer together.

There is nothing that will inspire you to talk action more than being surrounded by people who are also taking action. Learn from their mistakes, bounce ideas off of them, and don’t be afraid to be the dumbest person in the room. That’s how you know you’re in the right place and learning.
