Starting a business can be as scary as watching a cult-horror film, but what you’ve got to remember is that the characters are a result of special effects, and that with a proper perspective you can overcome anything.
- Business Plan:A business plan is the core of your business. A business plan consists of long-term goals; short term ones and maybe some specific objectives to accomplish within approximate time. As a startup, you’ve got to remember that your business plan has to cover all these aspects. You can start off by thinking about the long term goal for your company, like where do you want to see your company in the next say 5 years or so, and what are the stuff you have to do to get nearer to that goal. Your business plan should be clear, concise and accurate. Your employees and you have to be on the same page about the direction your business is headed to and what kind of work you are expecting etc. These days mobile applications are really helpful to make some innovative business plans.

- Finances:Any company needs finance to function on. And since you are a start up, you have to know and have connections with the right people, if you want them to invest in your company. You have to sell your product and your company to the potential investors. You can take different loans like start-up loans, asset-based loans, bank term loans, private loans and so on to help you fund your initial outing. Consider the options of taking a PPI and a PPI claim, for emergency purposes. Other sources include selling your automobile or any other asset you own or borrow from your friends, family or acquaintances, but make sure you chalk out an agreement in writing. You can hunt out some of your potential investors by contacting the chamber of commerce or maybe your attorney or accountant – everyone knows where the money lies.
With the finance, you can set up your company and give the investors an idea about the direction you are guiding your company through.
- Environment:No one wants to work in a dull and boring company. A cheerful and semi-formal work environment will have your employees working happily. Instead of the dull browns and boring whites, splash some colour around your office – don’t go overboard and use very bright colours, go for sober shades for that classy look. The way you position your employees around the office is also important, have a relatively open-spaced layout i.e. keep your employees scattered around in groups of 2 or 4 and don’t make it too congested. Have regular team meetings and offer incentives and bonuses to people who have worked exceptionally hard the past week or month. Congratulate and acknowledge your employee, when they do some out of the box thinking.
Your company is yours and the hard work you and the employees put in will make it successful.
