Starting your own company is a big step that calls for persistence and willingness to take risks
There are so many things to keep track of, and it costs blood, sweat and tears to get it up and running. A 60-80-hour working week is not unusual at the start, and there will also be periods where your earnings are noticeably lower than you have been used to.
You have to be prepared for all that, and still have plenty of mental reserves as well.
On the other hand, the satisfaction of succeeding is all the greater when it is your very own company that is doing so well. You have better chances of achieving that success if you follow these recommendations:
- Have the right advisers close at hand
Before you take the great leap of trying to run your own business, you should choose the right advisers, and avoid fire-fighting exercises, zig-zag tactics and chaos in contracts and finance, management and production. We have the experience and know just what it feels like in newly started companies. After all, we have tried it ourselves.
- Is your idea viable?
It is relatively easy to get good ideas, but it is quite another thing to start a business based on it and earn money from it. Are you uncertain about whether your idea will sell? Or are you wondering whether it will collide with other ideas? Let us look over your idea with fresh eyes.
- Think your business concept through
You can make a good start by sitting down with us and making a plan for how you will run and develop your company. A plan like that will give you an overview of your idea and make it easier for others to understand what you are working on. You will be able to make better business decisions and convince banks and other investors that you are worth taking a chance on.
Get professional help from us to build your company on solid foundations with a future.
- Make use of your network
It is impossible to overrate the importance of linking your company to a series of networks. Active networking is an investment that will pay returns again and again. Often it will be through your network that you find your first customers, but a network can also be useful for exchanging ideas, sounding out plans, backing, exchanging contacts and plenty more.
If you become one of our clients, we place our network at your disposal. We will also help you building up a personal network, which may consist of former colleagues, other new entrepreneurs, experience exchange groups, partners who will collaborate, competitors and others.
