From Martin Luther King Jr. to Jerry Seinfeld, everyone has dreams. Studies show that most people dream four to six times a night. But how many of those dreams turn into legitimate businesses?

I don’t have stats to back this up, but I would wager that it’s not many. But how do you know if your dream can be turned into a thriving business? Well, lucky for you, I’ve put together a basic list of tips to help you in making your dream a reality.


Do your research to make sure your dream is possible.


Most dreams fail because people don’t stop to think if it is even possible. Ask yourself if you really have the resources (financial, physical, or otherwise) to put into chasing your dream.


Take the first step.


You cannot turn a parked car. Even if you start going the wrong way, you need to at least get moving in order to go in the right direction. Mistakes will help you narrow down your dream so it can succeed.


Reevaluate your dream.


If you have been chasing a dream of becoming the next Weird Al Yankovic, but no one is listening to your parodies, maybe it’s time to reevaluate whether your dream is even possible. Public opinions change. Perhaps when you started writing your songs, it was a great idea. But over the years, people stopped enjoying what you had to offer. Just like all good businesses, you will need to adapt.


Having a dream is easy. Making that dream become a reality is the difficult part. Are you running your dream company? How did you make your dreams real? Leave a comment below!
