“If you really look closely, most overnight successes took a long time.” Steve Jobs
The idea of starting an online business that becomes an overnight success is a myth that still persists.
It is true that the Internet has made building a business easier and very affordable. However, for a business to succeed and continue to be solid and profitable over time, it requires solid foundations, persistence, consistency, skills, the right mindset – which means entrepreneurs must work on themselves, not only on the business – and other ingredients.
We all have in mind successful startups becoming gigantic ventures, like Amazon and Google. However, before becoming the massive entities they are today, it took them years of hard work, trials and errors as well as the thinking and planning and gestating needed before the formal founding of any company.
My guest in today’s episode of the ProsperityOnAir podcast, leadership and business coach, entrepreneur, author and speaker Sabine Matharu, started what today is a very successful business as a side job. After a very successful corporate career, her outlook on life changed completely with the birth of her children: she wanted to be there for them and see them grow. Following her passion to help other women build a lifestyle that would enable them to provide a good income without sacrificing their families, she founded Reach For Greatness, a platform where parents can find resources to learn business skills and also get mindset and life/work balance right.
Sabine Matharu is one of the amazing speakers at the Women Who Dare to Desire Conference, magnificently designed and organized by Debora Luzi, my special guest in Episode 22 of the ProsperityOnAir podcast.
