One of the first steps that you should take before deciding to go into business is to determine why you, the prospective business owner, want to go into business.

Have you realistically calculated many of the advantages and disadvantages of owning a business? Are you aware of the key factors you need to start a business and see your business be a success? Who are your competitors? Are you ready to write a Business Plan? Do you realize what finances you will need? Can you write a Marketing Plan? Do you have a startup company mentor/consultant to assist you? Do you know people who could work with you to implement your startup idea?

These are all critical questions that must be addressed by new startups and entrepreneurs; and are discussed in this whitepaper.

•  Are you really ready to start your own business?
•  Are you sure the consumer market needs your idea?
•  Did you benchmark your new idea against other ideas that are already out there?

•  Have you considered a Financial Plan? How will you pay to enable you to create your idea/business?
•  How will you Market your new idea/startup company?
•  Do you have colleagues who may want to join you in your venture? Teamwork makes a dream work!
