    Hi there

    I'm a newbie in business and have a question about business process organizing or delegating

    I've lots of projects in my mind. Lots ideas. And I'm wondering have any of you skills to start ANY of projects that came to your mind up in one month?

    I'm interesting that because I'd like to start not only one, but most of them. Not 2 or even 5, but more then 20. So I realize that I need some way to start them up with somebody.

    Maybe anybody of you have some ideas how could it works. Books about delegating or something.

    Interested only in experiences, not ideas.

    Thanks a lot to all readers and responders ))

    My only advice to you is to focus on 1 idea/thing/project (Max 2). I mean if they're reliable projects.o_O

    First of all, as mentioned above I would focus on one idea. Get it to work before even thinking about starting another one. Would you rather have 20 half arsed projects that fail, or one good one that works?

    In terms of delegation - it is best for you to first do the work yourself (to understand what needs to be done). In the future you can outsource or delegate work, and you will have an understanding of the quality you are after and what you should be paying for the work to be done. You will also develop and appreciation of the work and time needed to complete the task / tasks.

    If you just jump in without experience and outsource / delegate and spread yourself thinnly over 20 projects. I can guarantee that you are going to spend a fortune and likely give up.

    I definitely would suggest doing one or two projects at a time as you could easily become swamped and provide less quality in each project.

    I am similar to you in that I have so many ideas floating around but you have to stop thinking about them and action something. For me I have one core project (for me it is a youtube channel) and then everything else I am working on is related to the one goal (facebook page, website, etc...). I set goals about where I want to be with my youtube channel before I start another endeavor. As far as delegation that is something you will think about down the line when you are (hopefully) successful. The only thing I can say about that is to document what you can in terms of SOPs and process so that you can hand over processes/projects to a buyer or assistant in the future and then move onto the next thing.
    Good luck!

    The first step is actually the hardest which is getting into it, look at the journeys of people here to get an idea , and yes it has been done but it doesn't make any sense unless you have put in enough research and you don't have a team and time to devote to all of them

    A lot of people have many great ideas, but they have no time to handle all of them.
    Just stick to the one most interesting project from the beginning, as you will experience lack of time even with one.
    Or in case you have investments just start creating a team and assigning different projects to different manages, but also it will take time to find smart and well-organized managers.

    Similar to the many responses you've received in this thread; I would say that you should only focus on one project. You should also dive deep into that one project and grow it and profit until it's a large company with divisions that can then be filled with other separate projects. Again, those other projects or divisions within your company would be filled with your other ideas. I wish you good fortune.

    Don't spread yourself too thin - if you start 20 projects you can only give 5% of your energy/effort/skills to each one.

    Best to start 1 project and give it everything you have.

    Here are some realistic expectations for you, OP. I'm only saying this because I've personally went through all of them:

    1. Expect every single thing you do to fail in the beginning. This is because you don't know enough yet, but that will come with time and experience.

    2. Expect ANY profitable long-term business to take more than a month to generate a decent amount of profit.

    3. Expect to get banned, ghosted, deindexed, and limited in any way you can imagine, and expect to have to think up a solution past any of those road-blocks.

    4. Expect to have to take a significant amount of time to optimize the things you're doing once you get rolling.

    5. Expect every venture you start to be WAY more complex than it initially seems to do optimally. (This is why you don't want to start 20 projects, even though it seems realistic through your eyes right now).

    6. Expect most money making methods you find on here to either be outdated, or not work as well as you think they will work if you follow the steps exactly. -This is not a dig at the quality of content on BlackHatWorld, because it's amazing. It is a realistic view on saturation and meta-change over time, as well as the cat-and-mouse games that envelope many IM techniques.

    7. Expect, at any given time, to have your biggest money making method drop off the face of the earth. This is why you don't put all your eggs in one basket.

    If you're as proactive as I think you are, OP, I'd recommend starting 2 "short term" projects that take a up the bulk of your time, and 1 "long term" project you can slowly build onto for a couple minutes every day and then put in the back burner (e.g. 1 Instagram account).

    I was just like you, years ago. One thing that I'm going to tell you is, don't give up - you will fail sometimes and learn a lot from the mistakes.
    Just start doing whatever you can.
