NEW YEAR , NEW BUSINESS ? – STARTUP BUSINESS PLAN
1.IDENTIFY YOUR PASSION
You have to love what you do, you are going to have to do this everyday, therefore it needs to be inline with your beliefs and values. Your new business needs to tie in with your ethics and you need to have the belief that will push your through when the daily work kicks in and the ‘NEW BUSINESS GLOW’ fades.
2.GET IT STARTED & LEARN ON THE JOB
You need to have the experience and skill set to get the business started. With this in mind go work for a small business thats in your field, this way you will get a feel for the industry and you will meet like minded people, tap into a ready made network and overall you are getting paid to make mistakes as well as getting an education in the industry. When you are ready to start, keep your job and start your own business on the side whilst getting one customer. Eventually you will be able to quit their job, so Success4 suggest you ‘Lilly Pad’ your way over the pond and hope skip and jump to some solid business ground.
3.START YOUR BUSINESS ON THE SIDE
Go get your first customer whilst you are still employed. Most new business do not make a profit for the first couple of years, so you will NEED AN INCOME to support this new business whilst you build up a client base and a trusted brand name, but most importantly your new business will change, it will never be what you first thought it would be so you will need to TRY NEW THINGS OUT which consists of failures and to have the room to fail you will need the financial space to fail a few times.
