Why It"s Actually Better If You Don"t Have Experience

If you've ever tried to get a job, then you know how important experience is to most interviewers.
They want at least one year experience doing this, five years experience doing that.
If you've found yourself in the never-ending maze of not being able to get experience because you have to be experienced, you're not alone.
(Yet another reason why you should ditch jobs altogether and start your own business!) Just because this is the norm in corporate America, doesn't mean it's the right way.
Experience is great, if you've learned from a great teacher or in a great environment.
But if you've got experience doing things inefficiently, what good does that do anyone? Your "experience" can put you into a bad business mindset that has you failing time and time again.
What would have happened if Thomas Edison kept repeating the same experiment over and over and over again, instead of changing his method each time he failed to produce a working light bulb? Well, for one thing, he would have experienced the "impossibility" of creating a light bulb.
The same is true for you.
If you're thinking that great enough "experience" is going to make you more capable of running your own business, think again.
Be wary of the value of experience - especially when it isn't your own.
Other people's failures and mistakes can be contagious.
Consider this: if you trust other peoples' experience, then you're trusting the experience of the four small businesses out of five that fail.
What you need to do is look somewhere else for what to do - find what works.
You can learn to be successful in your business, and it's easier if you don't have to unlearn a bunch of bad business practices and faulty beliefs first.
There are literally millions of millionaires out there, and if they can do it, you can do it.
Or can you? Is "I don't know if I've got what it takes" one of your limiting beliefs? Have you personalized your past failures, and instilled doubt in yourself? If so, you've built success up to a height at which it doesn't belong.
Don't make your business success about you, your personal qualities and worth.
Your success comes from your decisions, and most importantly, your attitude.
Once you've got the right attitude, and the true desire to succeed, you will figure out how to make your business work for you - or get into one that does.
The truth of the matter is that the things to make your business succeed are available to you right now, no matter your previous experience.
