It is good to discuss with a business advisor when starting to plan your own business. You will get valuable information and as an outsider, the advisor has a good possibility to contact public investors and help with financial applications and other documents.
An entrepreneur’s most important resource is his skill. Good skill requires education and working experience. If you don’t have good skills, it is risky to start a business. Lack of education it is not an obstacle, you can educate yourself in courses funded by the Ministry of Employment.
As an entrepreneur, you should know about the laws of your field, bookkeeping and closing of the books, industrial relations, taxation and budgeting. You should be committed to continuously educate yourself and follow the business environment.
Is there demand for your product or service?
A foundation for all businesses is the demand for products or services. On the other hand, good skill combined with a well prepared and competitive business idea always enables a new company and helps it to succeed. It is easiest to start a new business when markets are growing and it is hardest when markets are falling. When markets fall, the newest businesses will have more challenges than those who have been in the market longer.
