Starting a new business can be quite confronting. True?🤔
There are of course many questions (or are they obstacles?) to overcome, such as:
🤔 Where will new customers come from?
🤔 Will they be the “right” customers for my business?
🤔 Do I have enough capital to fund my business until it becomes self-sustaining?
🤔 How will potential customers find me?
🤔 What can I do to make people aware of my business?
🤔 How can I ensure that my business is sustainable over the long-term?
🤔 What are my long-term business objectives and do I have the right plan in place to achieve them?
Then there are the “what-ifs” to contend with…….
WHAT IF I am too successful and outgrow my capacity to properly manage the business?🙄
WHAT IF I find that I don’t have all the skills needed to run my business successfully?🙄
WHAT IF something happens to me that stops me from running the business?🙄
TA-DA! There are responsible, clear-cut answers to all these questions … and others not mentioned above. 😍
