It’s a great time to be an entrepreneur—in the last decade, technology has levelled the playing field and propelled an entrepreneurial revolution. As an entrepreneur, you now have more access to information that enables you to make more intelligent choices more quickly. You have an advantage over big businesses in that you’re lighter, more flexible, and faster on your feet. You can target new markets more quickly, and you can turn on a dime.
But being a successful entrepreneur requires that you look at the big picture and follow a plan through from beginning to end. There are a lot of factors to consider when starting a business. Primary among these are the three “P”s – Plan, Prepare and Persist.
Plan - After you have selected some ideas from your brainstorming to base your business around, create a plan of attack. List what you'll need before your business starts. Get as much as you can out on paper and set deadlines to get things accomplished. This will allow you to evaluate your pace.
Prepare - Once you have a plan, carry it out. Preparing to start a business can be a lot of work. Tasks include getting an identity designed, creating business cards, brochures, web sites and other marketing material, consulting with CA's, lawyers, and HR professionals, in some cases finding and renting or buying a storefront or office, furnishing the business space, getting utilities in place, receiving and organising inventory, getting a database for your customers and leads and any number of other tasks. Better to plan your setup time too long than too short and finding yourself running out of money.
Persist - This is the most important step of running a business. Without persistence, you won't even be able to finish your business plan. Hang on like a pit-bull. When the going gets tough, get tougher. Have worst case scenario plans to fall back on, as well as best case scenario plans.
