When you first start your business it can be easy to loose hope. You feel like all you need is for people to give your product a chance. Whether it’s a physical good or service you know all you need for them to do is to try it. In the beginning we give our products and services for free or deeply discounted and sometimes people still thumb their noses at it. I wanted to tell you today that if you believe in the products or services that you are offering, and you keep working hard, one day you will turn the tables. The very thing that you tried to give away for free will be the same thing people will be willing to pay you for.
Sometimes it takes a while for people to see the benefit of what you have to offer but don’t forget most of the everyday products and services we use today started at the very point you are at now. Take a minute to think about that. Think about a product like Netflix. During a time where Blockbuster Video reigned supreme someone had the idea to send videos directly to customers houses with no late fees. Can you image how that person must have felt when they were suggesting that idea? It seems normal place now but back then it was foreign territory. You know who didn’t take Netflix seriously? Blockbusters. If you have been paying attention to the news you know how that one ended up.
I say all of that to say this, even if no one else gets or understands your business, brand, product or dream doesn’t mean that it can’t one day be a great success. No one knew they needed a computer until the computer was invented and that worked out pretty well. Keep pushing and one day the table will turn for you. Just a little Saturday morning motivation.
