5 THINGS YOU NEED TO DO BEFORE LAUNCHING YOUR BUSINESS IN 2018
If your going to step into the world of entrepreneurship, make sure you go hard at it. The goal is to serve people. Not just all people, but your targeted audience. 2018 is the year to get right and launch your business. You have another shot to get your shit together. Are you ready?
Get Rid of Self Doubt
Let go of self doubt. It’s a dream killer. Self doubt is the number one reason why many people do not follow through with opening their dream business. You can have the best idea for a business but the moment you start questioning yourself is the moment you tell yourself you can’t open a business. Open your business or watch someone hire you to work the same business you dreamed of opening.
Create a Business Plan
When you decide to start your business, you will need to write out a business plan or hire someone to write it for you. Business plans are important because it’s your roadmap to your business. A good business plan will include a SWOT (strengths, weakness, opportunities, threats) analysis. This step is critical to every startup.
You’re never too old or too busy to self-educate yourself, especially in the business world. Laws and trends are forever changing. You must keep up or you will get left behind.
Start Your Email Marketing List
Create your email list before starting your business. Make strong connections. Reach out to other business owners who may be interested in what you have to offer. Your email list should reflect who your target audience will be. This is why a business plan is critical.
Consult With A Lawyer
Hire a lawyer. Contracts are crucial in business. Contracts protect you and they protect your buyers. Get a layer to read over the contracts you draw up. You don’t want something to happen to you or your business and come to find out, your contract doesn’t protect you. Laws are different in every state and this is exactly why self-education is important. Protect yourself.
Now go out there and handle your business.
