A beginner entrepreneur needs to find answers to many important questions, and most of them arise even before the project is launched. To translate the idea into reality and turn it into a working business, these tips will help.
1. Write your idea on paper
It all starts with an idea. And business is the same. At the initial stage, the main task is a clear presentation of your business idea with a detailed description of all your thoughts and plans. Write how you represent the product, the client audience. Describe how you represent the activities of the enterprise and the results you want to receive.
You can share your ideas with close people, friends or relatives, listen to their opinions and criticisms. Perhaps it’s worth thinking about making adjustments.
2. Calculate the necessary amount to start a business.
We can not neglect the calculations. At this stage, you need to clearly plan your expenses, which are inevitable. This is a very important test of your idea of realism before implementation.
3. Make your income and expenditure plan
You can make two versions of the plan.
One is the “optimism plan”.
In it, describe everything as you would like, and even better. This is a plan of great success, the highest demand, the best customers, huge profits.
The second is the “pessimism plan”.
In it, consider the version of the development of events, which is far from ideal. (there are few clients, there is a lot of competition, there is almost no revenue, etc.) And write down all the expenses that may appear.
Analyze after both plans.
And you can make the third is the “realistic”. So you do not fool in expectations.
4. Think about the composition of the team
It is important to decide what exactly your team should be, to realize your idea. Think about what employees you need to solve the problems of your business.
Write down the answers to the following questions …
– What will be the schedule of work?
– How many employees do you need?
– Do you need another manager for your employees?
– How much do you need to pay each of your employees? Determine what will be the system of payment, will there be bonuses and bonuses, the percentage of sales?
At the start, these questions may seem less important, but as experience shows, it is better to start when you have all this written out and prepared answers to all the questions, as well as important “trivia”, such as the corner of the buyer (consumer) – a mandatory stand for the company and the store. Thus, it is easier to conceive conceived into reality.
Already before starting your business it is necessary to start thinking like a successful businessman. Thinking should become as if you already own a large corporation.
