In this day and age everyone has access to the creative tools to become an Entrepreneur – just set up a Website, start a Facebook and Instagram. Most start off as “sidepreneurs” – having a full-time job and exercising their talents during their off hours. Others focus solely on their gift and artistry and pray God makes a way. But, there are ways to create a stream of income as a business owner and reach your full potential with God-given gifts.
So, How do you build a business Well, my friend, there is a process. Many of the entrepreneurs we work with at Treadwell Agency have a burning desire to share their gift with the world immediately, but like any other business, the strategy is necessary – that is the difference.
Business requires strategy and thought with regard to how to present the services to the marketplace. The marketplace is your audience. Ask yourself, “Who is interested in purchasing my product or service. Identifying your audience is key, but only after you identify what you’re selling.
With that in mind, the question becomes – how do you carefully consider your offerings. It is a no-brainer to work your gift, but what other alternative streams of income could be valuable to your income and help fund your dream? Each gift has an unlimited number of applications, and God has graced some with multiple gifts. Start by identifying the gift you have, look at your current service offerings and develop ways you can stretch out and monetize your gift to support your lifestyle. You can grow multiple ventures from one gift by being consistent, professional, available and present.
