Your coaches summarize the key points you’ve learned.
We hope we’ve given you some valuable insights on the possible risks and rewards of starting a business of your own. Now it’s time to review the key points we’ve covered.
First: the business owner’s experience and expertise is usually critical to success. Draw on your own job experience or do plenty of research to fully understand your new business and what it takes to make it profitable.
Second: create a business plan. It’s your roadmap to a successful future.
Third: determine how much money you’ll need to get started. Be realistic. Consider whether you want to get a loan or take on partners.
And last but not least: when it’s time to get down to business, take an organized approach. Make sure you’ve addressed all the items on your checklist — from legal and finance, to management, marketing and technology.
