Getting Started: What you need to know when starting a business, Part 3in Small Business Information and Statistics
Here are the last 6 key items you need to know when starting a business:
10. Have I determined where I will operate my business from? Many businesses start at home. If you plan to start your business at home, make sure you deduct your home office or home usage. If you plan to operate out of a commercial space, it is important to look for suitable locations and make comparisons on the properties available.
11. Do I have a way to track clients/customers and communication with them? It is important to plan on how you will be tracking clients and how you are going to communicate with them. Remember, your clients are your source of income so ensure that you have the best plan to build a good relationship with them.
12. Have I evaluated my insurance needs? Look for the business liability insurance that will best fit your business needs. You may also want to consider other factors such as your medical, dental and other health care needs.
13. Have I determined what I can do myself and what I will have to hire out? Identify areas you are good at and the areas you will need help with.
14. Do I have advisors in needed areas? Many of the areas we have discussed require the expertise of someone else. With many wise advisors, your plans are much more likely to succeed.
15. Do I have a business plan? Start with basics – have a marketing plan, financial projections plan and a strategic plan to reach your target.
