Disclaimer: In celebration of my company Nel’s Tax Help, LLC completing its second year of business, I decided to share some words of wisdom to other new business owners that will help them along their entrepreneurial journeys. Tips provided are purely for informational purposes only. Enjoy!
In the last post, I mentioned how as entrepreneurs we wear many hats. But even if your business is a one person operation like my business is, you never do your business alone.
Personally, I have had the support of my husband before I even registered the business’ name. My friends have shared on Facebook that I provide tax services by sharing my posts all the time even if some of those friends have never used my services themselves. (NOTE: They share because they know I’m good at what I do but they are loyal to their previous accountant or CPA they used prior to me. I still appreciate the endorsement all the same and never take personal offense).
I have worked with other accountants, lawyers, enrolled agents, and other professionals who have provided me with plenty of best practice tips. There is nothing like fellow colleagues within your industry willing to reach back to help bring you up.
And my customers! In addition to most of them being recurring clients by coming back, they recommend my services all the time. Some have even gifted me money just to help my business grow with no strings attached.
I know for a fact I did not start my business, nor have I continued my business, without the help of my tribe of supporters and helpers,. I am sure you can say the same. I am forever thankful for my supporters because without them, my company could have easily been a statistic and would have stopped after its first year.
Always remember you are not alone in your efforts to move your business forward, and always remember to be thankful for your supporters even if it is just one other person. You will be surprised at how many people are actually cheering for you to succeed as other entrepreneurs usually want new entrepreneurs to be another success story.
