This is my consulting business in November of human resources to start my second anniversary. I look back over the years, I learned astonished at what is accomplished. If you think you start a business, read on!
I always my own business, talking to friends about it and imagine that it could be. Two people in my life, but it’s only after you gave me a push, it began to work instead of a dream. Before moving forward when we’re both thinking, my old boss said, “I never had this job, I always go further to create my own.” Given your advice, I trace my steps, and then hired a business coach can help the race. My entrepreneurial spirit in the coaching business, I recommend that you start looking. So I dream about it moved.
I established a line of credit and acquisition, setting up a checking account, and easy to implement a legal framework for accounting systems, business name registration is sent to set the insurance company within the first month of business. For each subject, a long time, but never too hard. The hardest thing to create my business plan and marketing plan was to I am in Small and Medium Business Administration and co-workers and volunteers talking points, I’ve read books on marketing. I am learning along the way, but now I’ve used the business and marketing plans, route maps daily to guide my actions, because the process has been slow. One of the easiest and most fun the first few months – for me, logo, business cards, stationery, brochures, and create a website designer has to work with.
I also start networking – the activities never stop. There are many organizations that participate. The trick knows which ones are selected. Finally, import or my business is my business, or both, to help you learn more about building half-dozen organizations have decided to part with.
Months of work activities, answer questions, one of my “elevator speech”, “you’re doing?” The listener interested and able to understand. ”We select talent and grow the organization’s human resource consulting company and I have people to help grow a great career choices, and …” Now when people ask, tell.
I am also struck the oil well in the business to be run like a machine to generate a lot of time spent on the process. I write a proposal and evaluate the results of work I do, follow-up, has a process for making sales calls.
In addition, two wonderful students this year, interns can learn from my business to help them with their career working with me on all those who want to contact me. Have an intern, and supervision and additional training time, but his ideas and enthusiasm have paid off. In fact, my line of business etiquette, know-how. At this point, the three of them left the meeting to review the marketing plan.
Network meetings, colleagues, I joined the Women’s Business Development Center to have suggested that consideration. After you see him, I had my business certified as women entrepreneurs. Interested in doing business with women business owners and corporate members have access to a directory, in addition to meeting other women entrepreneurs.
For me, starting my own business the biggest risk is financial. I have to pay a fixed monthly salary went from roller coaster. Before starting my own business, sitting with my family to overcome a slow month asked for their support. My husband and children, such as clothing and CD must be convinced love has supported my ten sons. But in my case a few years away from college to make decisions of their careers, so I can teach them how to dream, see my moves.
Compensation is important. I love what I’m doing. For any and all business decisions, I have a decision. My new freedom has unleashed my creative talents. And I have a whole new meaning. My advice after my first year: you have a passion for the business idea, the hard come on!
