I know many young people who have been able to start businesses from a single idea, solution or invention that would be able to move society forward. Some of these entrepreneurs already had access to the necessities of early-stage ventures, on the other hand, some did not - that includes me.
I started three businesses from my room, originally starting a photography business from a $200 camera when I was 14. I tended to focus on what resources I had instead of looking at what else I needed to build and develop the business. In my case, resources were scarce and I knew that if I wanted to grow and develop the business I had to actually start - and, leave the excuse of little resources behind me.
Apple Inc. started its operations from a garage, where Steve Wozniak worked on the Mac 1. It was when Steve Jobs came along and started marketing the Apple Mac 2 when the business really took off. The focus started to shift from Wozniak's ideas and engineering abilities, into a prospective business looking to dominate the tech industry.
Setting up a business is said to be one of the hardest parts in business, especially with the fact that 2/3 of businesses fail within the first year of operations. I have always said that businesses need to focus on the development of its functions even more, however I understand that all businesses are different and require more in depth attention in different places, and at different stages in the business cycle.
When it comes to resources, why would they be an excuse for your business? If we look at my scenario; I took an idea and turned it into a business with a camera and computer. Looking back on it, I find it hard to believe that resources can be an excuse if you are willing to priotritise your vision high enough on the list. It doesn't matter whether it is time, money, support, resources etc - all excuses are the exact same. If you are willing to put an excuse in front of your vision, why bother?
I have always understood that alternatives are present, and it is whether you want to accept and utilise them as an opportunity or whether you want to dismiss the opportunities at hand.
Coming back to resources, it is essential that you are as productive and effective with resource use, otherwise you're wasting what you have and you are begging for an excuse, not your vision.
