Small Business Planning

You are skilled – an expert in your profession. You think you can wing it on your own. Your heart, your guts, even your family encourages you but STOP.

Did you know there are 3 major factors you need to consider before you say “I’m in business”?

  • Capital – How are you going to pay for equipment, your location, maybe employees, but most important, how will you pay for your personal living expenses until the business can support you (whenever that will be).
  • Market – Do you have a market? Where will your customers, clients come from?
  • Location – Where is the best location for your business? This is critical, and while it may not be convenient to your home, it may be where the customers are. Is the more expensive location better for customers than the cheaper location?
