Thinking Of Starting Your Own Business?

Here are ten questions to see if you are up to the challenge of entrepreneurship.

1)        Are you willing and able to bear great financial risk?

Roughly half of all start-ups close within five years, so you must be realistic about the financial risks that come with a business.

2)        Are you willing to sacrifice your lifestyle for potentially many years?

If you�re used to steady paychecks, regular working hours, four weeks� paid vacation and health benefits, you may be surprised at the changes you must adapt to.

3)        Is your significant other on board?

Don�t ignore the toll that running a business will take on your family. Honest and open communication will lessen that stress.

4)        Do you like all aspects of running a business?

Founders are often expected to handle everything from billing customers to hiring employees to writing marketing materials. It can be frustrating to spend so much time on �busy work.� 

5)        Are you comfortable making decisions on the fly with no playbook?     

There are a lot of decisions to be made without any guidance, and you are calling all the shots.

6)        What�s your track record of executing your ideas?

The ability to implement ideas is one of the biggest differences       between successful entrepreneurs and everyone else. It takes drive, persuasiveness, leadership skills and keen intuition, to turn an idea into a lucrative business.

7)        Are you persuasive and well-spoken?

It takes strong communication and interpersonal skills to get people (lenders, customers, etc.) to believe in your vision as much as you do.

8)        Do you have a concept you�re passionate about?

If you�re not exuberant about how you�ll be spending your time (or in the business concept) running a business is going to be a rough ride.

9)        Are you a self-starter?

Entrepreneurs face lots of discouragement. It takes willpower and an almost unwavering optimism and tenaciousness to overcome these constant obstacles.

10)      Do you have a business partner?

Finding a business partner who compensates for your shortcomings, and has equal enthusiasm for the business concept, can help lessen the risks while boosting the odds of success.

Build An Inclusive Company Staff

Where does the difference lie between friendly social groups and divisive cliques? It can be hard to tell � until you realize that your company has a problem. Even though you can�t change how your employees feel about each other, there are several ways to keep the business functioning:

  • Stay neutral. Remain objective and investigate conflicts from both sides. Gather all the facts first, before taking action.
  • Build relationships with all individuals. Although groups may see themselves as very different from each other, don�t let group politics distract you from getting to know each person.
  • Keep everyone focused on the work to be done. Talk briefly with each group or team about the need to work together. Maybe write out procedures to follow, which assure they must interact to succeed.
  • Try to bring cliques together. Once you are sure that the necessary work is being done, build on inclusive work relationships.

Change Is A Process, Not An Event Or Destination
