If you have been wondering if now is the best time to start a business or not, or maybe you have just dipped your toe in the water of entrepreneurship, perhaps are thinking “oh know what have I done” and are now second guessing your decision, then here are some reasons as to why you should JUST GO FOR IT.
The bounce back now is guaranteed as all businesses rush to get going full steam ahead again and will be doing all they can to get back on track. Now is the best time to launch something new or get it off the ground again.
Consumers will definitely have more disposable income to spend as they would have been unable to spend over recent month’s on holidays, Christmas, home improvements and personal purchases as they would normally have wanted too. Everyone is going to want to make up for lost time, so household spending is likely to be an all-time high and consumers will be ready to spend as soon as restrictions are lifted.
With the sad news that many businesses will have not of survived the pandemic, many will have been thinking about the chance to start a new business, capturing on some of the lost businesses market share and wanting to gain a competitive advantage while they can.
It will be an ideal opportunity to recruit and select the right candidates that you need for your business. The pandemic forced millions of people out of their jobs. If those people do not decide to start their own companies, they will be looking to join those who do, putting their experience and expertise where it is most valued.
Office locations will be cheaper to use as initially companies encourage businesses to get back to the office, and with more than ever more financially favorable business grants and support, now it makes the ideal time and perfect sense to start a business.
It has now become even more easier and more accessible for anyone to start up their own business such as e commerce, virtual assistant work, coaching, designer or developer and plenty more!
If you are hesitant about starting a business during this time, look for the reasons why it will work, instead of why it will not — because what we focus on grows. Sure, it will be scary and there will be a huge learning curve, but the time is going to go by anyway… so where would you rather be a year from now? Still daydreaming about being your own boss, or 12 months in to building the life of your dreams?
Are you ready to face the challenge? Make it your time to shine!
