Big business secret
Some recreational therapists want to start their own business (like a private practice) or (consulting firm) or even useful resources.
I feel that those recreational therapists (who are interested in starting a business) would love a ($1,000 lesson) for FREE! Yup – it is free.
Do NOT, and I repeat do not: order and make big payment (for a rent of space or for resources) as your first action step. That is like shooting a a gun without having a target.
Here is what to do first:
- Do research.
- Test the market.
- Find out if there is a real need for what you want to offer or a super burning desire.
Imagine spending a lot of money to rent a location for a year and then getting zero clients. Big problem. Big loss of money that a person wouldn’t be able to get out.
I consider myself humble.
I’m glad to share my personal experiences on this.
My idealist goal was to get recreational therapy promotional products. I noticed there weren’t any place online selling these items.
I spent a little over $1,000 to get rec therapy month balloons, ink pens, and notepads for rec therapy month.
What did I do? I have a big problem now.
I took a poor risk.I went out there to create these items and now nobody is buying them. Now, I’m $1,000 in the hole. That is my $1,000 tip. I sold a pack of about 60 balloons. (and that is all).
I’m going to have 1,000 balloons, 1,000 notepads, and 1,000 ink pens.
Me and my thought process: No worries, I’m resilient. I can handle this and bounce back in the long run.
I just wanted other recreational therapists to have that tip.
Don’t go and print 1,000 copies of something like a t-shirt. Sell them first and then create them.
Here is the products I’m making a reference about that I created at a major loss:
