You have finally done it!
You are mentally prepared to launch your own business. The battle of second guessing yourself is over. Keep in mind, that when you own your own business, there will always be something to do. Without a doubt, you can handle this challenge you have embarked on yourself because of the pure combination of brains, ambition and bravery. As you step out, be bold about it -- by understanding how to build a financially healthy business.
It’s no secret that capital is needed to fund any business. When just getting started, it is important to first be realistic about how much is needed to fund your business venture and where the funds will come from. Ask yourself, do you have enough in savings or will you borrow from family members? Ideally, if you are still working a 9 to 5 job, you will be using those funds to build your business. Don’t elude the importance of how much of your personal funds are necessary to maintain personal expenses, such as monthly mortgage and utilities.
Believe it or not, one of the key reasons entrepreneurs do not survive past five years is due to the process of poor accounting. For you, that will not be the case.
Here are 7 key actions to consider when funding your passion project:
Will it require some amount of risk to start a profitable business? Absolutely! However, in the process, you should not lose your passion. If you prepare yourself financially for the risks ahead, you’ll provide your business with the necessary runway to take off.
Putting in the time and effort up front to stack the odds in your favor and will help light the everlasting fire of entrepreneurship.
