3 things that are holding you back - Wanderful Academy

Are these 3 things also holding you back when it comes to creating your own website?

You have decided you want to start your own business. Maybe you just quit or lost your job or maybe you start building it while you’re still employed. The most important thing is: YOU ARE STARTING YOUR OWN BUSINESS. Take a bow because you deserve every praise for this incredible and scary decision.

So, now people are saying that you need a website. When I heard that when I started my own business I got scared. 

Are these the 3 things that are holding you back?

How - Where do I start? 

I had the fortune to have hired somebody who helped me set up my own business. She introduced me to Squarespace and showed me some things I needed to build a website. That's why I chose Squarespace as the platform to build my website. And I'm so happy about it. I recommend it for every starting business owner. And as an introvert, you're an expert in doing things yourself.

Time - Do I have the time to build my own website? 

Yes, creating a website takes time. As I found out, it takes a lot of time. It’s not as simple as adding a page and you’re done. You need to choose the website platform, you have to make content and you need to learn how to build your website. It took me almost three months to get everything the way I wanted. Yeah, I’m a perfectionist, haha. I scoured the internet, watched a lot of video’s, read a lot of blogs, and I was pretty proud of myself with the result. And I kept reading and watching video’s so I still change things on my site. I just added a fantastic page-not-found page.

Money - Do I have the money to hire someone?

Hiring someone that builds your website for you costs money. It also costs money to hire someone who creates your content. As a beginning business owner, you don’t always have the money to do this. I didn’t have it, so I did everything myself. And with Squarespace it is so easy. 

A website is a necessity as a business owner. So don't let these three reasons hold you back.

I'm an introverted online business owner with wanderlust. I believe that being an introvert is one of the best assets a business owner can have. Introverts are excellent at working alone. They can work towards a goal without getting distracted. Plus, introverts are amazing at learning new things. I'm here to empower you to make your own website as awesome as you are. From the comfort of your own home. In your own time. So you can live the life of your dreams.
