Why would that happen? What would cause you to want to start again from scratch? There are at least three reasons:
1. You lost your motivation. It happens. You get busy or overwhelmed and you can’t quite remember why you were doing this. The amount of “work” outweighs the perceived rewards. So you slowly stop doing anything.
2. You got distracted. Building a business, whether it’s online or offline, is work. And it takes time. Sometimes you’ve not prepared for the time and work required. So you begin to neglect your business in favor of other activities. It’s not that you don’t care – it’s just that other things got in the way.
3. You went down a rabbit hole. This happens particularly with the technical aspect of online business. You choose one tactic and follow it to the exclusion of all else. When you “wake up” and realize you’ve gone deeply into a topic that isn’t giving you the monetary return on your time investment, you need to back up – and start over.
Those are just the three most common reasons that people feel the need to start over. But they are enough to get us started on the road back.
Still feeling like you can’t “start over”? Consider the number of very wealthy people who have built a successful business, gone bankrupt, then come back and built an even bigger business. They have leveraged what they learned the first (or second or third) time into being more successful, even faster the next time around. If they can do it, so can you!
So what are the steps involved in starting over? We’ll be covering those in a series of articles, right here. So follow along and rejuvenate YOUR business as we Start Over!
