Sometimes a business relationship is similar to a marriage – it’s scary to think of leaving. But is it worth the risk of staying?
There is never a time when I’m truly ready for anything. Even so, I’ve continued to take that first step to pursue my goals. For example, no matter how prepared I was for an exam as a student, I was always concerned going in. I was worried about my first day at work, my first business pitch… even to this day I feel the same way at times.

Whether it be an exam or a life-changing decision, it’s impossible to know when the right time is, or if you’re 100% prepared. You can always learn more, do more, or wait for better times – However, you must eventually take action. If you don’t, you’ll end up spending your whole life waiting for the perfect opportunity, without ever experiencing it. That’s the risk of waiting until you are ready.
Perhaps you are now wondering: if you can’t be 100% ready, how will you know when is the right time to upgrade to a new system?
There is no right time – The best time to start is right now. Even so, some moments are better than others, and let’s be real – even when you take risks, they need to be calculated so that you can gain more than you might lose. Once your risk has been calculated and determined to be achievable, it is time to act.
In the end, you must keep in mind that sometimes the question is not whether you are ready, but how committed you are to improving your business processes. Regardless of whether you are 100% prepared, as long as you’re all in, there is no unreachable goal.
Time waits for no man, and it certainly won’t wait for you to feel ready to change your business processes.
Sometimes it’s difficult to fight off the feeling of fear or doubt. In these moments, remind yourself that you’ve already come a long way, you can do this as well, and we’ll be right beside you helping you along the way. You’ve already lost precious time that no one can ever bring back. With that you’ve missed opportunities, you’ve made bad choices, you’ve let fear take over. But not anymore – From now on, less waiting, and more doing. Otherwise, you will end up waiting your entire life, and miss all of the beautiful things that it brings.
And you don’t want that, do you?
Don’t fear the future, but make sure that you make the right choice in the present. Stop waiting for the perfect time to come, because it’s not going to. You’ll never be 100% ready, so just go with your guts and trust the process.
There’s nothing to lose – You can only grow when you move to the cloud.
