Here is my first blog post, welcome! And it’s all about GETTING STARTED…

I’m really interested in why it takes us so long to get started with new projects/tasks/ideas? It’s certainly something I wrestle with!

The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex, overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.

Mark Twain

When you put it like that, it sounds so easy! This year I have started a lot of things: Nessbee Marketing, my website, The Beeline, new clients, courses and now my blog – all sorts! And along the way I’ve learned a thing or two, so here are my 10 tips for just getting started:

Each of these tips are things that I have exercised over the last 12 months or so. Committing what I want to achieve to paper is always my first step. Will we always get things right first time? No, probably not! But will we learn along the way? Most certainly. So start with what you have, whether that’s knowledge or resources, it gets you off the starting block and everything is a lesson learned from there on.

A year from now you will wish you had started today


The big question is, do you want to stay exactly where you are? Or do you want to move towards achieving your goals?

Leave me a comment if any of this resonates with you or if you have any top tips for getting started.
