No matter what you’re situation, if you want to make this t-shirt business thing work, you can…. 90% of it has to do with your mindset.
If you think you CAN’T start a t-shirt business unemployed and flat broke — then you’re right. On the otherhand, if you think you CAN start a t-shirt business unemployed and flat broke — you’re right too! Either way, you’re right.
Got this e-mail from Tiarra…
I just want to say thank you! I subscribed to you emailing list about a week ago and I’ve been doing nothing but taking notes and doing tons and tons of research. I’m a full-time college student majoring in business and I’ve honestly learned more from your videos than what I’ve been learning in school.
I’ve been unemployed for a year and 2 months now so its been hard for me to really fund anything. I’ve been applying for jobs for as long as I can remember but I was constantly being rejected because of my experience or lack of skills or how I look.
Then one of my friends put me on to the whole screen printing thing. So I spent all of my savings on the equipment and the lessons and wound up being horrible at it. I was spending more money than I was losing.
So being as though I was jobless and flat broke, I wrote up an awesome business plan and pitched it to a couple of my friends last week and we’ve already purchased 2 heat presses and a website that’s “under construction”. We only paid 350 for both of the heat presses and almost 300 for the website.
One of my business partners is actually a graphic designer so we’ve already sketched up a few designs and I’m proud to say that, today I sent off my designs to be printed up and I should have them by Friday.
So I want you to know that you’re truly inspirational and you’re motivational videos really work. I can’t wait to see my designs on a shirt with no mess or no stress at all!! Thanks again Cartess.
As you can tell from the e-mail, Tiarra didn’t complain or whine about her decision… Even after spending her entire savings on screen printing equipment that didn’t work out for her, she continued to study and find a solution that worked for her.
Even though she was unemployed and flat broke, she didn’t let that discouraged her… After doing more research and investigating, she came up with a solid business plan that she presented to her friends and they all chimed in… And now, she has all the equipment she needs to get moving and she her first set of designs are now being printed.
What about you… I understand the economy has hit a lot of people hard. But at some point, you’re going to have to make a decision on whether or not you’re willing to stay right where you’re at… Or make the decision that you’re ready to move forward regardless to the challenges that are holding you back.
Most people would have simply accepted the fact they’re broke and unemployed. Tiarra did the opposite.
She worked up a solid business plan and she pitched it.
It’s hard to ask friends and family or investors for money if you don’t have a business plan. How can they see the vision if you haven’t created one for yourself??? You’ll never get investment money from others if you’re unwilling to even do the basics — and the first thing you must have if you want others to give you money is a business plan.
Go back and read what Tiarra said above… and I quote, “I wrote up an AWESOME business plan and pitched it to a couple of my friends”.
If you’re broke, busted and disgusted — then create a plan. Create a vision. Get out there and share your plan with everyone you know — share it with strangers. If your plan is solid, well thought out and researched, you can get the money if you pitch it to enough people.
Don’t make anymore excuses. We often hold ourselves back with our own thoughts. And many of the fears and concerns we have aren’t even ours. They were passed down from our parents, relatives and the people close to us. Get out there and find out for yourself if you can make it. Don’t let someone else fears and beliefs hold you back and keep you from investing and having faith in yourself and your vision.
I’m contagious. Everywhere I go I’m excited. I talk about the Internet and how people can use it to make money all the time. I get excited when I talk about this stuff and it excites everyone around me. They start to believe they can do it too — and they can.
