January is flying by, and for most people that means their New Year’s resolutions are either in full swing or have fallen by the wayside. If you’re in the latter group, don’t make excuses, just do it! Ok, we know, easier said than done – but it is doable. This week’s Gig Economy News brings you some tips and inspiration from around the web about how to get things done, and where pursuing your goals can take you.
Keep Your Eye on the Prize
Doing something new is a risk, and being an entrepreneur means getting comfortable with – or even excited about – taking lots of risks. However, these risks are all taken towards a larger goal, and keeping that goal in mind will give you the strength to keep going no matter what! Take, for example, Jonathan’s story: he took a big risk moving halfway across the country, and despite many ups and downs along the way, he took a leap of faith and landed in a much better place.
Make Your Presence Known
If a tree falls in the woods and nobody is there to hear it it, does it make a sound? We think the 21st-century version is if an entrepreneur starts a business but doesn’t have a website, can he reach his full potential? A website is key to your business’ success, but too many people shy away from the investment it sometimes requires. Here’s why you NEED a website, and how to go about getting one now.
Ready, Set, Go!
Ok, you’re convinced! It’s time to take the plunge and just do it! Now what? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with our in-depth doers’ guide. This guide has the tips you need to go from enthusiasm to entrepreneurship while avoiding as many rookie mistakes as possible.
Words to Get You Moving

Belief really is the key word here, and you’re not the only one out there who struggles with finding the inner push to get things done. Here are some core beliefs that successful people have which you can use to build belief in yourself.
