First, you will obviously need to know what type of business you would like to have. What do you enjoy? What do you know? What do you do well? What will bring you success? Those questions probably sound fairly easy to answer….but starting a business is not an easy thing to do, and not something to attempt without careful consideration, lots of thinking, and much planning. Yes, there are many benefits to being “your own boss”, but there are also many responsibilities in doing so, and many many things to consider.
If you are unsure and need help or guidance, there are Business Coaches available to help you. Or, you could find information from Entrepreneur Magazines. If you want your business in Connecticut or Rhode Island, I would recommend Luc Deslauriers from FranNet of CT/RI. He, or any business coach, will provide you with a list of businesses that fit your financial and personal needs. They will also help with recommendations regarding different ways of funding your business, from liquidating asset, to taking out a loan, or other options available to you. To do this, you will receive a list of questions to help you determine what type of business is right for you. The whole procedure might take a couple of months, depending upon your business needs. But, remember, the ultimate goal is to have a business that you are satisfied with, one that will bring you happiness and success
Once you establish your business, you will need to enlist the professional assistance of a Business Attorney. Entrepreneur magazines provide information on these type of attorneys. Again, if you’re interested in having your business in CT, I would recommend Cliff Ennico. An attorney will help you with all the legal issues involved, for instance types of corporations, regulations, license requirements, zoning regulations and restrictions, and much more. Obviously, it’s very important to get a good attorney, one who is knowledgeable and understands your needs.
Another neccesity is an Accountant. Your attorney can probably recommend a good accountant. They review the financial aspect of the business you are looking into. While looking for an Attorney and an Accountant, you may also have to start looking for a location for your business. Depending upon the type of business, you’ll need to decide what type of location you need. For example, for a Retail business, you’ll want to try to be on a highly visible street. Other types of businesses may be able to be located in an industrial or corporate park. Once you establish your business, your location, you’ll undoubtedly need to advertise. Advertise your business.
