3 Top Tips When Starting A Business

tips when starting a business

If you're thinking about starting up your own business - that's awesome. It's important to learn about as much as you can within the industry so that you are fully prepared when starting out, because although you will learn an awful lot as you go - the better decisions you make early on, the more likely you are at being successful. 

Here are 3 of the best tips to help you start on the right foot. 

Address The Excuses 

No matter how much people dream about the perfect career, half of them will never end up doing anything about it because they will create excuses for themselves which is mostly down to the fear of failing. Not a lot of people are willing to try if they know that there is a big possibility of them not getting anywhere. Why put yourself through the pain, right? - Wrong. How will you ever know if you don't try? Sure, it's scary, and you're bound to feel vulnerable, but making excuses will only slow you down from ever being able to reach your goals. If you really want to start your own business, address all the reasons why you think you can’t, and then throw them in the permanent trash forever. 

Soak Up Everything 

Take in as much information, advice, tips, and help as you can. So many people use the term 'sponge' because it essentially means absorbing everything in sight, and that's what you should want to do. It's no good thinking you know it all - even if you know a lot, there is always new things to learn. So don't get cocky, there is always someone better than you out there. Write things down, take notes, and keep them somewhere safe. When you tell others (that you trust) about your idea, have a look at their body language and try figuring out how they really feel about it. There's a big difference from telling you what you want to hear, and telling you how they really feel. Even if you encourage honesty, some people just prefer to be polite. That is also why it's so important to ask around - not just your family and friends, but your potential target audiences too. 

Be The Solution 

When coming up with ideas for a product or service, before you start thinking about what you want to sell - you should think about the problem that you wish to solve. You will find it so much easier to connect with customers on a deeper level when you think this way, as a pose to "what will make me money?" So find issues, and then see if you are able to solve them. You may have to invest in a few things, but you have the option of unsecured personal loans who will lend you what you need so you can start making the magic happen. 


Do your research and try and find the gaps, and then you can look at how to fill them in and make everyone's life easier or better in some way. People like to know why you started your business; they like the know the history and the reason, so you better make sure that it's a good one.
