Start a Home Business is ScaryWritten by Daegan Smith
Starting a new business is scary, exhilarating, challenging and at times downright confusing. It's easy to get overwhelmed by huge number of tasks in front of you. When you get in that state, step back and think, "What can I do today that will get my message in front of my customers?" If you're thinking about this all time, other details will fall into place.
The first thing you need to do is decide on goals for your business. What do you personally want to get out of it? How many hours do you want to work? How many employees do you want to have? How much money do you want to make? The idea here is to get as clear a vision as possible of what your business will look like when it is established so you'll know what needs to be done to get there. For a very clear step-by-step method to do this, I highly recommend a program called E-Myth.
Next, do math. So many people—including me—have learned hard way that business they created is not capable of meeting goals they set for themselves. To help avoid this problem, do some market research to determine how much you'll be able to charge for your product or service and what volume you'll be able to sell. Think about how many hours you'll be able to work in a day and get a rough idea of maximum amount you could make. Once you have rough estimates for those figures, you can decide if money you could make or time you need to put in will be worth effort. You'd be surprised at how many people spend years working in a business that is just not capable of becoming what they hoped it would, even if everything went perfectly.
