Starting a Business

Make your dream a reality

There’s no better feeling than being your own boss! You can probably imagine exactly how you’d like your business to operate once it’s established, but it’s a little murky to envision how to get to that point. Before you invest any money into starting a business, it’s vital to perform market research and develop a business plan.

Market research poses the question: “Will anyone be interested in purchasing my product or service?” Start by finding competitors and discovering how popular they are on social media or in Google searches. What do you like and dislike about their business model? If you have a truly unique business idea, you’ll need to send out surveys to gauge people’s interest in what you plan to sell.

There are numerous market research strategies and techniques, so you may want to consider hiring a coach to help you succeed!

Once you’ve gotten positive feedback about your business idea, it’s time to write a business plan. Write down all of the details about how you intend to run this business. What resources do you need? Which staff positions will need to be filled? Will you have a physical location or be online only? Who is your target audience, and how will you reach them in marketing campaigns? A business plan is a large guidebook, and it won’t be written in a day. Take your time, but don’t stop working on it!

Don’t forget to create an initial budget as part of your business plan. This will help you understand how much money you need to launch your business.

There are different ways to secure startup funds, including from private investors, startup incubators, and directly from your bank.

Be sure you feel confident about making enough profit to repay these debts. 

There’s just one last step to take before you put everything into action: officially register as a business on a local, state, and federal level.

Starting a business requires you to pull out all the stops: never stop persevering, never stop dreaming, and never stop learning. Expect to perform market research and to adjust your business plan every few years to ensure you’re staying on top of trends. In the meantime, have fun making your dream come true!
