Whether you are a nursing mother, a student, a working class person or what not, you can still own a business of your dream despite your excuses for not starting one. There is this adage that says-if you follow your dream the money will follow you, well that is true. It is only when you pursue something that you can find it. One of the easiest ways to give your business a chance to grow is to work on it on the side. In other words, don't quit your day job. Although it may seem like stress, but going about your other activities especially working while starting up a business gives you the financial security to invest in your business on a regular basis. All you need is organization and time management. Below are things you need to do to create a balance between your activity and business.

Once you have your goals written down then you need to think about what challenges you will encounter as you work on achieving these goals. That is why it is very necessary to have a plan B when you are about starting a business. You have to know if there will be anything that will stand in your way.
