I have been doing some reflective thinking over the Christmas break. I have been in business just over 10 years and most of those in The Real Business Club with Dawn Edwards. When we started out we knew some essentials but there was a whole lot to learn. We learned from doing for sure, but we also learned from workshops and from others who had been “round the block”.
We still think face to face learning matters and so…
…one thing we do is run public face to face real workshops (rare indeed!) We continue to work with all kinds of people starting out on this journey.
If you know anyone thinking of starting a business, who knows some things but needs to learn more to prepare them for the ups and downs, please signpost them to these workshops.
In the meantime here are some tips we have learned from people over the years.
Top tips for anyone starting up in business
- YOU – Assess yourself – your personality, your skills, your motivations, your passions, your time management discipline, your weaknesses and how you will overcome these.
- YOUR BUSINESS IDEA – Take time to get an honest reality check. Will enough customers want it and pay for it!
- YOUR FINANCES – Assess your personal finances – A new business may not be profitable for 18 months. Will your personal circumstances stand this? What will you and your family live on if your business makes money more slowly than you really need? How good are you really at managing money?
The workshops will cover more DETAIL about these tips, and many more besides
