Are you planning on starting your own business?

If yes, do you want to be prompted to consider things you may not have thought about and maximise the chances of success? 

Chances are, your accountant won’t have taken you through these things and you may not know who to turn to. There are a lot of things to think about and it’s easy to be stalled by uncertainty and doubt. However, you shouldn’t have to suffer an unnecessary risk of failure, as being fully prepared can be easier than you think.

Starting a business is tough and that there’s a lot to think about. You may be putting everything on the line and you want to make sure you give yourself every fighting chance to succeed. My experience with helping business owners start and succeed is that reviewing a range of issues at the start may help a lot.

To help prepare, I’ve created a list of questions across a range of categories that will prompt some thought about the venture you are getting into. These questions are listed through an online course structure where you can save and review your answers. To take the course, simply

  1. answer the questions,
  2. review what you think needs to be considered more fully, and
  3. contact me or a professional advisor if you want more help.

Give it a shot and let me know how you get on. The more you consider a range of issues before you start, the more chance of success you will have and the less likely your business will flop. Can you afford not to fully think things through?
