How to start a side business while balancing everything in life

I started a side business while attending school full-time, working a job and while in the process of writing my book plus a million other little things going on. I created Tezara Collection because I am determined to accomplish anything I set my mind to.

Time is an asset if used wisely. We all have the same 24 hours in our day. How we choose to spend it is vital and will dictate if your side business is a success or not.

Starting a part time business is all about using your time wisely.

Starting a business does not have to mean an end to your everyday activities, but it does mean an end to time wasting endeavors which do not contribute to your growth. I have discovered that the choice is always yours and choosing to allocate your free time to growth is crucial to your success. I have also learned that launching a business on the side can lead you in a lot of new and exciting directions. If you can align your business with something that has intrinsic value you to on a personal level, I can confidently say that it will lead you in exciting and successful directions.

I have always been inclined to inspire and my side business idea reflects that.

From an early age, I found myself always wanting to lead those around me to bettering themselves and reaching their greatest potential. I have always believed that a positive mindset and focus are key ingredients to success, and so the story of my business began.

I started Tezara Collection because I wanted to create a genuine brand which will in turn allow me to give back, inspire and practice my passion. I am now in the process of collaborating with different charities to take part in giving back, as proceeds from each purchase is distributed to charities across the world.

My side business’ brand is built on transparency, quality and focus on design. What makes it different from other handcrafted bracelet companies is our intention of giving back, our genuine approach towards becoming a part of the changing and evolving world, our focus on the purchase experience and above all our values. As Tezara Collection grows as a brand, my aim is to further inspire customers and all those who join our journey to become their most empowered self. The goal is to create a community of leaders, where honesty, unity and trust become the leading values of business.

My experience starting a business has taught me that there has never been a better time than now to start a business.

The why is self explanatory – you no longer have to wait for opportunities to come to you because they can be created – by you.

The time to sit back, contemplate, and make excuses is over. If you have even the slightest idea of what you want to do in regards to business… start now.

The formula is as simple as this: work hard each day towards your goal, focus on it and on it only, stay positive, go for it.

You may now think, easy to say hard to do. I disagree! From my own experience, I have come to earnestly believe that nothing is hard to do when your heart yearns for it, nothing is hard to do when it is your calling, nothing is hard to do if you truly enjoy the journey.

No excuses in the world are allowed.

Ask yourself: am I serious about my business idea?

If the answer is yes, go and do it and do it now. Procrastination is a dream killer. I speak to you now as someone who is young, ambitious, and, in my mind, unstoppable – someone who has never let anything get in the way of achieving my goals, but most importantly someone who has overcome all obstacles which have been placed ahead of me.

To conclude, the purpose of this article is strictly to inspire you, to remind you that you can start where you are, with what you have and most importantly with an honest intention to give.

Making money can be simple for some, but creating a brand which the world will recognize as a leader towards improvement and empowerment… is priceless.

So the only question remains, will you do it? Will you start now, today, where you are with, what you have? Ask yourself: How can I create value for the world and I promise you, the answer will always be found within.
