I’ve got great news for you!
The short answer is YES!
Read on to get the longer answer…
Do you need a lot of money to start a business? No. There are many businesses you can start with very little money or even no money. I started most of my 17 businesses with less than $2,000. A few I started with virtually nothing.
Do you need experience to start a business? No. Experience is always helpful. But you don’t need experience to start most businesses. I started many of my businesses with no related experience.
So what do you need to succeed in business?
You need commitment. You need to be willing to keep on plugging at your business over a period of time. Some businesses require much more effort than other businesses. Some can be started and operated part time. But all businesses will require some consistent effort over a period of time.
Do you need anything else beyond commitment and working hard to succeed in business?
You also need some basic knowledge. You need to know what are the critical issues when starting a business and how to approach them. This is very important. If you make good decisions at the beginning, your business will be highly likely to succeed for years to come.
Commitment and hard work may not be enough to ensure success. Because if you work on the wrong things, or do them the wrong way, then your business may still not succeed. You also need the knowledge to make good decisions.
What are some of the key issues that you need to understand before starting a business?
