small business development

Stepping out into the Big World with your idea for a business can be very daunting. You are possibly frustrated with your career in corporate or you have decided that you want to convert your passion into a business. Alternatively, you find yourself in a position where starting a business is potentially the only way that you can earn an income.

There are many books available on the market, however, I’ve found over the years that most of them only help you to a point and too many create the false hope that you will be making a profit within 6 months.

I’m not trying to put a damper on your enthusiasm, I promise. What I do want you to think about is whether taking the time to plan your start-up is going to add value down the line or not.

Yes I am an advocate for a Business Plan; I also remind my clients that Business Plans are not written in stone. Their purpose is to give you an opportunity to express in writing what you envision your business will look like. You get the opportunity to look realistically at potential challenges. Yes you may be a brilliant carpenter, however, when it comes to marketing you may have no clue. How are you going to overcome that?
