Starting your own business is practically the American dream. We all aspire to be our own boss. But unless you were born privileged, there are a lot of steps you should undertake before you pull the trigger and start your own business.
Capital is Paramount
All businesses require money; you need money to start your own business. Early on you need to plan on how to save the money you need. It can be as easy as saving $50 a pay period to eventually build up seed money for a business.
It also means establishing your credit standing when you need to get a loan to fund your dreams fully.
Booking Keeping isn’t Just for Nerds
Booking keeping isn’t limited to just keeping a ledger it also means being able to keep inventory and matching the inventory with the purchase price. It seems complicated, but you need to know this if you want to put up a business that sells things.
People Management Skills
Since I want you to succeed, then let us assume that eventually you will grow and need employees. When that happens, then you better know how to manage employees. Hence it is a good idea to have managerial experience as an employee before you decide to have a business.
Uncle Sam Must Have Due
Government compliance stinks, for a small business person, it is a terrible waste of time complying with the rules and regulations Uncle Sam imposes on us. It can mean attending seminars and even taking classes to learn the necessary skills.
I’m not sure anyone enjoys doing these compliances, but it is unavoidable because if you don't you will run afoul with the law and you might watch you dream vanish as you end up getting your license revoked. Worse you might even find yourself in jail.
Challenge Your Comfort Zone
A final thing you need to do is to challenge your comfort zone. Starting a business is uncomfortable and will challenge your ability to do things.
