The Lazy Entrepreneur is Born

It Was back in 2006 when I was sitting in an office at one of the Self employment programs that SUCCESS having an interview session with who now has become a very good friend Gary Bizzo

I remember that one of my concerns was how difficult it was for me at the time to come up with a draft for my business plan, it was one of the requirements one had to have to get in to the program, (a 52 week training program on how to start your own business).

I remember saying…

Gary, one of the reasons I want to get in to this program is so I could learn how to put together a business plan and learn all of what is involved in starting a business…

The reason why I’m trying to get in to the program is because I have no idea of what a business plan is or what it looks like…

and It was true I had no idea of what a business plan was, or what it involved and to me it look like a lot of work that i had to do and I only had a few days to bring it in so I may be considered as a candidate for the program…

and Honestly I thought I wasn’t going to make it, I was not going to be considered, for it…

I felt as if I had failed already without even starting.

The outline of the plan, the marketing plan, the competition analysis, the financials, my SWOT analysis, the explanation of the concept, the idea etc.

My dream of becoming a business owner/entrepreneur was vanishing in front of my own eyes…

So, it wasn’t as easy as I thought it was going to be…

and I should have known that…

all of the books I had read talked about the struggle entrepreneurs go through as they are getting started…

I had read Awaken the Giant within, by Tony Robbins, Wealth without risks by Charles J. Givens, Cash-flow Quadrant, the E-myth, books that inspired me to take the jump…

But they all have a David and Goliath story… A rugs to riches story…

So Gary asks me a question….

Now my idea for business was kind of simple, I was going to build a commercial cleaning business in Vancouver, and office housekeeping

It wasn’t a million dollar idea, I just chose that because it was something I was familiar with, and I had worked in the cleaning industry before…

So Gary Asks…

Why do you want to have your own business?

I was out of good answers, I had no more scripted answers, that may have sound good and professional, I was frustrated…

so I just said…

Because I’m Lazy.

I’m just sick and tired of being told what to do, what to say, how to do things, being bossed around…

I’m tired…

I need to take responsibility for what i want out of life…

and working for somebody else in dead end jobs will not happened…

So yes I’m Lazy…

I want to have my own business…

so I can have my own rules, my own systems, my own employees, so they can do the work I hate to work on, and still be making a decent living…

That is the real reason why I want to become an entrepreneur…

I want to use other peoples skills other people time and other people’s money and build assets…

Did that get me in?

I’m not sure if that got me in, but I presented about a five page business plan a few days later, and later that same week Gary calls me and tells I had won on of the spots in the program…

The rest is history…

Now, even though I failed with my first cleaning business, on my second I’ve done really well,  you can check out the website here Techniclean Industries,

So I’m doing what I said I was going to do…

I’m leveraging others peoples time and skills while I focus on other things…

Summary:

If you have a business Idea, if you have a desire to do better in life, If you realize that your job will not give you the freedom you want…

start your own business…

Look out for government sponsored programs that can get you the
education you need to get started, and start moving in the direction of your Dreams!

Cheers!
