I recently read about the Sunflower and how a Sunflower will shift it's
face towards the Sun as the Sun moves from East to West. When making decisions in our lives that will significantly affect our livelihoods, we can take a lot of direction from the Sunflower. The Sunflower strategically moves where its resources are to maximize its growth. If you're looking for the right time to become an entrepreneur then the question is not only whether or not you feel it is the right time of you but whether or not the environment is providing fertile ground for your success.
Looking For the Sun:
For clarification purposes the Sun=resources. Entrepreneurs often assess their readiness by taking into account only their personal ambition and desire and forget that even the most robust plant cannot grow in arid ground. The environment plays a major role in how your entrepreneurship can bloom. For example, pagers may have been a hit in the early 90's but good luck trying to sell one today. While the product is great, the environment is not fertile for something like a pager right now. Think about the times we live in and shift your face towards the spot where you can get the most support and resultantly the most profit. If you are a makeup artist then shifting your position towards a "lipstick color matching app" or an "eyeshadow blending app" (if those are good ideas, I claim them!) and go where the economy or resources are fertile.While you may have been expecting one of those review your finances and wilingness to work type answers, I hope that this "Sunflower perspective" will augment your understanding of readiness. Your abilities combined with an environment which nourishes and supports your visions are sure fire ways to keep your business blooming I mean booming and anticipate growth. Entrepreneurship is not just about your stability but the stability of your field so before you plant your seeds make sure the soil is good and you shift just enough to catch the Sun. You already have the heart and the skill and now you just need a little light and some time to grow. Good luck Sunflowers!
