Who has the potential to start their own business?

Let’s face it, not everyone can be an entrepreneur. It takes more than just an idea and hard work to succeed. So before you get started, ask yourself these questions:

Do I have a willing support system?

A spouse or partner willing to help out around the house while you focus on your new endeavor? Family and/or friends who will offer encouragement when tough times hit? 

If you don’t have a supporting group in place, consider finding one. While it’s possible to do everything yourself at home without any help, this will inevitably make the business much more difficult to run.

Do I have a flexible work schedule? 

Running a business will demand that you set your own hours and days to work. You’ll be juggling a lot of things, which means you’ll have to be prepared to give this new endeavor priority over other time commitments. It also might mean working on the weekends or late at night when no one else is around. 

Do you have the flexibility to spend time away from family, friends or coworkers? Of course, there will come a time when you’ll need to hire employees; however, until your business is up and running, you should do everything within your power not to disrupt other important areas of life for this venture.

How much money do I have to invest? 

In order to start a business, you’ll need a minimum of $500. This is the bare minimum that every business requires to get going. It includes enough money for initial phone and Internet costs, printers, supplies and anything else that will be necessary to get the venture started. 

Determine how much money you have available for your venture and add a percentage factor of at least 10% just for safety’s sake; this reserve can always be used in an emergency if needed.

Do I have a realistic business plan? 

A business plan will help you outline your overall goals for the company. Even though you’ve decided to start a business, it’s easy to get sidetracked by short-term success, so it’s important to have an overall strategy in place before diving in. 

No matter how much money you have, you can’t start a business with just any idea. It must be well thought out and purposeful.

Do I have the necessary skills? 

If your venture involves something that requires specialized training or expertise, it might take longer for your business to become profitable than one that doesn’t require these requirements. Consider this before you start.

Am I willing to put in the time and effort? 

If you aren’t committed enough to make sacrifices, or are unlikely to ever meet your goals, you might want to consider another venture. Your business is only as good as the people who run it. If you can’t make these sacrifices, it’s not worth starting the business in the first place.

Where to start?

You probably already have an idea of what type of business you want to run. If not, there are a few things you’ll need to do before finalizing your idea. First, determine if there’s enough of a market for what you’re thinking of doing. 

Even if there is, find out if the market will support your end goals. Why do this? While some people may think starting any business is good enough, the truth is that no one will come knocking on your door asking if they can buy your product or services, you’ll need to go out and get them yourself.

Next, look into what you need to start a business. You should have the profits from your venture to support yourself and your family, so why should you have to foot the bill for these infancy costs? Start-up costs should cost less than $500 for most ventures.

Finally, you’ll need to find support systems before doing anything. It’s not just about money, you’ll need people who will help you get through tough times, as well as people who can offer encouragement when things aren’t going well. This way of life is very different from most jobs. You’ll need to train yourself to work around the clock.

Make sure you have ample time for yourself. This is very important when it comes to starting a business. 

If you don’t take time out for yourself, you won’t be able to give 100% to your venture. You’ll need to take care of your family and other personal responsibilities so you can devote all of your time and energy into your business.
