The first thing many people think about when starting a business after 50 is ‘how much is this going to cost?’ or ‘it’s expensive to start a business and what if I fail?’.
But, if you’re asking these questions you’re starting in the wrong place in my opinion.
Starting a business starts way before you spend a dime on a website or on an online shop or on a FB Ad.
It starts when you get the bug. The bug to start something meaningful. Something that you love and want to make money with.
It also starts with getting your mind and life in order (generally - get your shizz in order) so you’re set up for success.
