If you’re keen to set up your own small business then the first step to take is by setting up a business plan.
Don’t fail your business, have a plan!
A business plan is an important part of your business. It is the key to drive your business in the direction you want it to go. Even if you have already started your business you should take a moment to do a business plan as this will help you get organised and follow your plan to succeed.
Think about why you want to start a business in the first place. It could be because:
* you hate your current job
* you need a more flexible job to fit around your family.
* You’re stuck, you have more knowledge and skills that aren’t being utilised at your current job.
* There are just no jobs available in your area.
Most people wouldn’t plan a holiday without a plan so why would you start a business without one?
Having a business plan will set up your vision, mission and objectives of your business and how much money you actually need to start your business with. If you don’t have much or any spare money then wanting to set up a retail shop in the local mall straight away might be impossible. However starting a blog and writing articles, comparing retail shops and clothing lines can start making you money to set up your dream retail shop. It’s all about dreaming, but taking mini steps to succeed.
