Got an opportunity to talk shop with Joe Zanca on his podcast 'Get it Done' highlighting entrepreneurship and what its like taking that ever so daunting leap into the world of becoming a business owner. Spoiler alert; it never feels like the right time but if you plan well, it can be 'worth' it.
Check out his podcast for some inspiring stories and thanks for having me on Joe!
Entrepreneurship for Architects
I have been lucky enough to not only have some great mentors throughout my career so far but also have relied on a few resources to help guide me through some of the uncertainty.
Starting out and even as the company continues to grow, there are always elements to the business that are 'new' to the operations and administration of the studio.
For example, we just expanded our small operations here to also include enhanced employee benefits which I personally feel is important to the overall satisfaction and appreciation for all the hard work the team does on establishing existing conditions, modeling design options, and everything that goes into seeing projects from beginning to end.
For anyone who might be considering starting off on their own or even want to potentially explore expanding any side work into more of a stable self-employment opportunity; feel free to reach out to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org as I'd be happy to share any insight I can with you.
The decision to start off on your own is never really easy. If you're thinking I'll wait until the time is right or when I finally become more financially secure; that time never really comes about.
The advise I could give and have tried to share with a few colleagues who are undertaking the journey for themselves, plan for what you can and take the opportunity when it arises.
There is no time like the present! If there is anything I can do to help, reach out.
