Seven key questions you need to answer before starting your own business
With the right support and a little guidance, deciding to become your own boss can be the best decision you will ever make – provided you are not afraid of a lot of hard work along the way that is!
The key to being successful is treating your new business exactly as that, a business. Once you are working for yourself you are no longer simply “doing a job” and everything you do should be geared around making your business a success.
It is rarely enough just to be good at what you do.
Many businesses start on the basis that the owner/manager is skilled in their own area. Sometimes, they see how much their employer is charging for their services and think that they will be better off cutting out the “middle man”. Alternatively, some find themselves out of work and take the decision to set up on their own as a good way to pay the mortgage.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with either of these reasons, but working for yourself is not the panacea that many believe, and it is critically important that you go into it with your eyes wide open.
