Start & Grow a Service Business to Success

Start and Grow a Service Based Business

Service professionals have one of the most direct and simplest paths to starting their own business. Yes, you can take your service, the one you provide every day, and turn it into a thriving service based business run by you! There is great freedom and income potential when you decide to take the plunge either with a dipping your toes in as a part time approach or the full polar bear swim dunk into doing your own business full time.

It sounds so simple, right? Yes, there are parts of it that are very straight forward; however as with everything that looks too good to be true, there are a few mountains every service entrepreneur will need to climb. The good news is they can be climbed if you are willing and of course get the right gear and guide.

The first big reality hits when we realize we just want to do what we love doing, but now it sets in we also have to be the boss and build our business. As soon as that sinks in, we then come to the realization that we have never built a business before and we do not have the foggiest clue how to do it or where to begin.

Then when we jump in and get the engines running. We see it all clearly now, the truth of the matter is we not only signed up to deliver the service, but we are now the marketing department, sales department, accounting assistant, customer service, and yes the administrative support.

The predicament lies in we just really love doing what we started our business for and the rest of it, well we could happily leave it. This is the first mountain you will need to climb, the one that has you, usually in the start up phase of your business, wearing multiple hats and needing to know how to start, grow, and scale your service to a successful business.

Having ventured the first entrepreneurial mountain without a sherpa, but now having climbed many and running my own traditional service business and taking it to an online business, I feel there are many trade secrets to share that will speed up your journey. Actually, you and all service professionals running their own business, are my mission. So much so last week, I decided to start a new community called, To Serve with Wealth, but first things first, let’s dig into the 4 steps to launch and grow your service business.
