While writing the title of this post, I thought it important and necessary it is to talk things clearly when we start a business. And it sounds funny, I thought that this issue should contain the "Naked Truth" about to undertake. So I tried to express in these lines 10 things nobody tells you when you start a business and you definitely need to know.
10 Things no one tells you when you start a business and You Need to Know While writing the title of this post, I thought it important and necessary it is to talk things clearly when we start a business. And it sounds funny, I thought that this issue should contain the "Naked Truth" about to undertake. So I tried to express in these lines 10 things nobody tells you when you start a business and you definitely need to know. Put another way, these are 10 things I wish someone had told me before starting my first business and I'm sure would have saved me money and many headaches. 1. A business takes time. If those thinking about starting a business to work less, think again (a). A business requires much investment of time, especially at the beginning and probably for many months or years, you have to work twice as much as you think. 2. You must work harder than before. Similar to the previous point, many people quit their jobs abruptly because they are tired of long hours and endless hours of work. Well let me tell you that your business is no different. In fact, you probably have to work longer days and more hours in your office than before if you really want your company to stand up and grow. 3. Will end the problems. This is perhaps the biggest myth in this topic. To think that your company and you will not notice or you will not need pesky people support is illusory. Building a business requires much skill to actually SOLVE problems . You'll have to deal with customers, suppliers, employees, partners, shareholders, etc.. And the leader will need to be able to solve them all everyday situations. 4. You will earn much money. This may be true and indeed this is one of the most important reasons why we undertake a business. However, what many entrepreneurs ignore or omit is the fact that the money is in proportion to work smart. You can win a lot of money with your company, but as you are willing to innovate, create, improve what others do, be the best at your trade and become a whole strategist. 5. You have great company in a few months. This is another common fallacy. Believing that just make an investment, hire some employees and advertise on the Internet , come orders and hundreds of customers interested in your product or service is completely false. Building a business is the product intelligently integrate the various factors we discussed in this post and this requires a lot of dedication, vision and tireless work. 6. You can do your own and do not need anyone else. I have seen that only in the movies when Rambo ended with his enemies in a matter of minutes. In real life, working alone can be career suicide. You should know that to drive a business toward success requires different knowledge and skills. If you can surround yourself with smart people who give you good advice and help you troubleshoot and plan your course, then you will most likely be victorious if you intend to do everything your own way and style, without consulting anyone. 7. Just being good at what you do. This can be a trigger of success at first. Doing things right is a good thing. However, many companies have failed in the absence of innovation. Every business needs evolve, learn and improve every day what he does. Especially in the information age, pretend that you know today will be good for the next 5 years is a hoax. Surely for when that time will be more competition, new products, more technology and consumer cultures. So if you want to grow, be willing to innovate and to always improve what you do. The Japanese call this: Kaizen. 8. Work hard and forget about the numbers. If something surely end with many companies with good potential is neglect # 1 of entrepreneurs and forget about the numbers. If you want to be a good businessman, you should give high priority to your business accounts. If you are not an expert, you should advise by someone else but not evade your responsibility to make decisions in light of the numbers. Always know how much you invest, how much you spend, the invoices and what is your profit. You manage budgets and have a re-investment category. Remember, work hard and be good at what you do not replace in any way to know the numbers and make good decisions. 9. "My product sells itself." Yeah right! Leave it in your warehouse and wait for your customers to come looking for you to compare. You should know that every company, regardless of size, must have a sales and marketing strategy . I do not mean investing millions, but this principle applies even if your company be just you!. You sell, sell and sell . If you can not do it, hire someone to do sales or receives a course. But there is no other way on this planet that allows growth of an organization that has nothing to do with sales. 10. Legal is not important. I think that what is legal is like oxygen for your business. Many people make the mistake of dismissing the legal part of a company. Comply with formal procedures, finance, tax registration, licensing, health, etc.. We will get rid of stress audits or that at some point you see above (a) to problems that can easily wipe out the profits of a semester in fines and payments to the government. And of course, even for this there are consultants and people who can guide and advise. The key is to be aware of the importance of legalizing your business. CONCLUSION As I mentioned at the beginning of the post, perhaps these points will seem hard and direct and the least we want is discouraged. On the contrary, the spirit of this post as the 1000 Business Ideas is to encourage, equip and guide entrepreneurs to build companies that are solid, they can grow and give you the financial freedom you crave. And the only way to start on the right foot is talking about these things that nobody tells you when you start a business. And I can tell you for sure that a company based on consistent principles, professionals will give you great satisfaction and long-term economic. As always, my best wishes for success in everything you undertake.
