Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can. - Arthur Ashe

This reminded me of something.

I was at Sears buying a computer. It was October 1996. The reason I was at Sears was that it was the only place I had sufficient credit to buy a computer.

The computer and I journeyed home (I drove) to the crappy apartment I was living in. Whereupon I set it up, started designing my company's logo and making sales calls. 


It is so easy to get into the "I will when..." game. There were no marketing materials, there was no "company phone number" just me and a desire to get the ball rolling. That's it.

It took two weeks to get an investigative assignment. I heard NO NO NO NO NO NO................. Ad nauseum, but I survived.

A year in later 1997 we did over $2 million in revenue. 

Stop waiting for everything to be "ready".  Get started, in some way, now. Who knows how far you can go in a year.

Best wishes.
