If you’ve been wanting to start your own business, but haven’t done anything yet — what’s stopping you?

You dream about it. You come up with new ideas on your way to work everyday. Your friends have listened to you talk about launching your own thing for months, or even years now… but you have nothing to show for it.

You’re not alone.

Before you Google “how to start a business” again, make another pro/con list, or call your BFF to ask if you should take the leap and quit your day job, watch today’s MarieTV.

I answer a question from Ralitsa, an aspiring entrepreneur you can probably relate to. She asks:

DIVE DEEPER: Learn how to get unstuck so you can finally get started and have confidence in your business even when you don’t always believe in yourself.

Remember, you wouldn’t have the dream if you didn’t already have what it takes to make it happen.

Time to put your dreams into action.

In the comments below, let me know your answers to these two questions:

  1. What’s one action you can take this week to find a community, network, or peer group of entrepreneurs?
  2. What structure, education, or accountability do you need to support you in starting your business?

There’s no crystal ball in business, but there are timeless principles you can follow. You don’t need to reinvent the wheel and you don’t need to go it alone.

Whether it’s a book, program, course, or mentor, find a roadmap you can follow and surround yourself with other supportive entrepreneurs who are building their dreams, too.

  1. I’ve definitely struggled with confidence in places and I love that leaning on community and structure can help us step back from the “inside-our-head-busyness.” As well as the accountability/step-by-step structure to help you move without just being all caught up in your own stuff!
    That alignment piece is crucial!!! I’ve also found that it stops me from filling my time with “busy work” that doesn’t actually move us forward.

    what it is the Ideal bussiness today ?? be in your computer all day ?? or part of that….

  3. Question for Marie Forleo Crew:
    I love you Marie; just want to ask, I took the class I’m guessing 4-5 years ago and paid to join. Does this qualify me to join in the B-school course now for free if I register for it?
    Thanks for your reply.

  4. Marie, I have followed you for a while, just love you and your energy. While listening to this today… I’m overwhelmed by the parallel to what you have said and organization I have been a part of for the last couple of years… it is EXACTLY meant for what you speak of here. To surround yourself with like minded people to establish a community with structure. (Like a mini-mastermind) It is called GoalFriends. Please check it out! The growth has been very organic to date. It’s a structured program for like-minded women to come together in small groups to inspire each other, collaborate, connect, and transform. This all started from a calling to give back to women and since then GoalFriends has created a Foundation where every workbook that is sold 100% goes to the GoalFriends Foundation to help Women and girls around the globe. GoalFriends . org. Would welcome any support or ideas for ways to reach more women. Thank you.
