Do you dream of being your own boss and of waking up in the morning and knowing that you do not have to answer to anyone but yourself? This is the dream of many Americans before you, those who paved the way for modern entrepreneurs with hard work and a strong sense of motivation. Starting a business is a great, achievable goal, but it is important to consider the practical aspects of this decision before you take a great leap.
Every successful business is built on the foundation of a solid, workable, practical business plan. Starting a business without a plan is like opening a restaurant with no menu—if you don’t know where you are going and what you are working toward, your potential customers will pick up on that confusion as well. From the first day of your journey, know where you want to end up. Over time, as goals are reached and needs change, adjust your plan accordingly, but always, always, always have a roadmap to follow.
Additionally, it is necessary to follow through with important legal steps. Determining your legal structure is as important as your business plan. Will your business be a sole proprietorship or will you incorporate your business? Do you have a legally documented plan for dealing with liability issues and employment matters? Do you have the required licenses and permits for operation? These questions and more should be answered with the help of a lawyer who can help you navigate the necessary legal processes involved with starting and running a business.
