How to Plan for Running a Business


Starting a Business for Money and Freedom

What if you could start running a small business and make money so you could have the freedom you to live a life of choice. This is great Seminar on how to get a business going without having to spend a lot of money. Justis talks about how its possible to use what he calls the three “S’s” to create successful small businesses that do what you want them to do…in other words make you money and give you freedom rather than taking money and time away from you.

While many people like job security this is becoming a rare thing, time are a changing and more people are seeking ways to become self employed, business owners, entrepreneurs that can create a life on their terms.

Running a business is not easy but more often than not neither is working for someone else. Even if you have a great boss eight now that can change, and the boss from hell walks in and everything changes, everything you enjoyed about the job fades away. Then job security I remember when people didn’t change jobs they stayed hoping for a pension and some stayed for the stability now people can work several jobs, split shifts, on call and they never know where they stand. They come to realize that the only way to get a pay check is to become self reliant and self employed.

Reasons to Consider Running a Business

There are many other factors people decide to become a business owner, sometimes the harsh reality is the work they do doesn’t pay enough to make sense going to work, when they consider daycare expenses, gas, running a car, clothes and food its just too is expensive to work. Crazy, but true!

When you are considering starting your business and doubt you have the money, take a look at your expenses to go to work and see how much you need to make in order to stay home, and create your own business. Many entrepreneurs thought it was a pipe dream, but when they worked out the numbers, decided what they were going to do for a service or sell as a product they realized they could make enough to offset what they were bringing home after expenses and they were better off financially as well as having a lifestyle they wanted.

If this sounds like you, start to consider what skills or hobbies you have that people will pay for.

Ask people if they would use your service, do a survey.

Create a budget and look at your out going expenses.

If you aren’t ready to cut ties with work, start your new business part tome and keep working until the demand and the money can be replaced, this will also give you time to consider if being a business is for you. Start the ground work now, it is always good to have a back up plan. Things change and when they do they can change fast, be prepared!
