How to Become a Wordpress Business Builder (Interview with Regina Anaejionu) Face the fear of starting up your business.
I had the privilege to have a conversation with the “Wordpress Business Builder”, as I call her. She is a willingly giving soul. She’s the author of the book ”The Small Business Manual & Workbook”, Regina Anaejionu. She has shared to me her knowledge and wisdom about starting up business. I took out the golden nuggets from our talk and here it is.
Thinking You Need It, When Actually You Don’t. Fearless, after Regina graduated from college, she went out and tried to start a business. Of course, we cannot avoid making mistakes in our first try. That’s how we learn and be good at it. So, you guessed it right……her initial business venture was a “failure”. That’s because, as she said, “I think that a lot of those times we romanticized business a little bit. We watch movies where these really cool business owners have these awesome lives and awesome offices...And so, my problem at first was kind of trying to do the movie version of my business” Regina thought she needed office space, and expensive equipment to do her business. She thought that if she have all those stuff, then she will be better at business. However, that idea’s completely FALSE. That was her major business mistake. “…Clients don’t need that. They just need knowledge. They don’t care what kind of office they meet you. And for the most part, they will meet you at a coffee shop as long as you can answer the questions that they have.” She added, “We can actually operate a business pretty much from anywhere with almost any kind of device.” For instance, if you have a computer and access to an internet connection, you are good. You can start a business with just that.
Regina didn’t realize this at first. So, she wasted a bunch of money and time on things that she didn’t need. But how do we do start a business without spending that much money?
Figure Out Ways to do Things for Free Of course, we want to be able to start a business which we can be certain is going to be successful. We want to make sure that we won’t invest a ton of money on something that’s bound to crumble, or something that we are not sure we should be doing for the rest of our lives – “Our calling”. In other words, we want to be able to do things having the least expenses as we can actually have. So, start to think outside of the box. There are a lot of ways to be able to do that. You can use the internet like what Regina did. She started researching tools that she can use for free, for instance, Google Voice that will give you a business phone number and just route to your current phone number. Also, she found different ways to build websites without spending a dime. And one of them is Wordpress. I am pretty sure you have heard of this.
With just the free tools available in the internet today, you can immediately start your business. And it’s not just Google Voice, and Wordpress. There are a lot more. Try this: Go to www.google.com and type in Type in “Free Business Tools”. The top ten search results will give you an idea of how much free business tools available in the internet today. Give it a try.
Okay, I will be discussing more about this in my website. Regina actually shared one last tip with us and you can find it there. Click here to continue reading…
