So, are you thinking about starting a small business of your own? If you are, here are a few important things to keep in mind before moving forward:
- Ignore statistics: The first thing you are likely to look up when thinking about starting your own business is the success rate of new businesses in the same industry. You may read that the chance of failing within the first two years is 90 percent, or come across a category showing other scary statistics. But remember, these numbers do not reflect every single new business—don’t see this as a reason to give up before you even start!
- Choose something you like: Whether it’s a bakery or a security guard company in Mohave County, AZ, owning a business is a big commitment. At least at first, you will be doing a lot, if not all, of the tasks yourself—such as ordering materials, designing and building products, manning the register, answering the phones, doing bookkeeping, calculating taxes and more. So, make sure you are doing something you like and will like for a long time.
- Do your homework: Starting a business requires heavy research. How much startup money will you need? Do you need office space? Is there a great need for your product or service? What about all the legal ins and outs (licenses, fees, taxes etc.)? You should also consider talking to others who have found success in the same field you want to go into.
- Don’t quit your job just yet: It’s advised that you not quit your current job too soon, even though this will open up a lot of time for you to focus on your new business. For now, it’s best to make sure you have money coming in to cover bills and necessities, while dedicating a certain number of hours per week to planning and getting your business off the ground. But, if you can truly afford to quit your job, don’t let anything stop you!
- Stick with it: Once you start planning your business, stick with it—this is what a good, successful entrepreneur does. So, choose an idea, run with it and see where it goes!
