Starting a Business
Starting a business is exciting, but those who want to succeed face a bewildering range of decisions, beginning with what business form, Sole Trader, Partnership, Limited Company or is buying a Franchise the right route?
But starting up a business is one of the most challenging decisions that you can make. There are several reasons people have for setting out on this roller coaster ride. Wanting independence, having a exciting idea, seeing an opportunity are many of the reasons cited by entrepreneurs. In some cases circumstances are the driving factor people returning from a career break, being made redundant, wanting out of a boring job, sometimes even getting a windfall or inheritance.
It doesn’t matter what the reason is the important thing is to get it right from the start preparation is critical. On average, around two thirds of all start-ups will fail in the UK within their first year of business. However statistics show that between three to four out of five of those business start ups who obtained and acted on advice prepared correctly survived.
Market research is critical as is enough capital to finance the business, without a market you have no sales but run out of money and it’s game over! But get all the stages of preparation right and you should not only survive but thrive and enjoy the independence and financial security that made you decide to start a business.
