Meet your basic needs first
You need to first take care of your basic needs. The thing is you will not be able to be creative or be in your creative state if you are hungry. Also, if you are battling with debts or your rent is due. This is a result of the mental stress you are passing through. With no money, you should consider meeting your basic needs first before you can move on to the next step.
On the flip side, most people use hunger, or the no money dent to propel themselves into financial abundance. Therefore, we are not erasing this off the book.
Undoubtedly, this doesn’t work for everyone. So to cover your basic needs, you need to get a job. A day job will be fine. Then during the night, you grind and hustle for the business that will catapult you to financial freedom.
Learn, implement, fail, do it all over again. Having your basic needs met is the exact space you need for you to feel a bit secure. This way you gain all the energy you need to figure out how the business you want to pursue works.
Level up your skills
Without a doubt, the fastest way to level up your skills is to work for someone else. You could either work for someone and get paid in crumbs, or become an intern without getting paid. The goal isn’t to make money, instead, to absorb as many skills as you can to use for the future of your business.
Indeed, learning on the job is a superb way of leveling up your skills. Notwithstanding, you will be learning a refined way of doing things, strategies that have been refined for many years, because the business was created to succeed. Besides, if you are dedicated to understanding that business formula and model, you’ll leave your job with all the skills needed to implement them in your business.
Find a need you can serve
Unquestionably, business is nothing but service. The more you can fulfill and serve a need, the more money you are going to make. Serve as many people as possible and you are in business.
These lessons apply to anyone, in any country, or situation around the world. What should you do if you have to start from scratch with no money? As explained before, you get a job in the agency you want to venture into. Using the opportunity to level up your skills.
No job is beneath you, it’s not the end, it’s a means to an end. All you need is to absorb all the nitty-gritty of the job and move over to becoming your boss. Put yourself in the door of the place you want to end up, do whatever it takes, and watch out for the amazing results.
