You don’t need lots of money to start a business

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need invest lots of money into a business from the start. Many modern companies are able to start online, ran from home using nothing but a computer and a phone. If you want to get into retail, you could start with an online shop or set up a market stall. Try to maximise the amount you earn and minimise the amount you spend – extra expenses like a credit card scanner might be better for when your business has grown, as every credit card transaction will come with additional charges. You can also borrow money in the form of a business loan or seek an investor for additional money.

You can teach yourself the necessary business skills

You don’t need a qualification in business to run a business. There is a lot to learn, but there are so many free learning sources out there including business blogs and Youtube videos and podcasts on everything from accountancy to sales strategies to creating your own website. There are also day workshops and online tutorials that you can take up to help teach you skills, most of which are fairly cheap. There’s also the option of outsourcing certain skills – something which most entrepreneurs do. This could involve paying an accountant or marketing company to take care of this side of business, so you can focus on the stuff you know.

You don’t need to be exceptionally talented

Few people are gifted with raw talent. So long as you have some skills in your field, you can start from here and learn to hone these skills. For example, if you want to start a jewellery making business, but only know how to make basic necklaces and bracelets, start from here and put all your efforts into marketing and providing good customer service.  

It’s not all about innovation

Your business doesn’t have to be groundbreaking to succeed. There may be businesses out there already providing a very similar service. You can still run your business on a similar model so long as you make a few small changes such as providing better pricing or better quality service. Competition can be healthy in the business world, forcing you to keep evolving and improving your business in order to keep customers coming to you.

You can run a business around commitments

Commitments can make it hard to focus as much energy on your business as you’d ideally like. However, people all around the world have started their business whilst working other jobs or raising children or studying – it’s all a case of time management. Dedicate yourself slots each week to running your business and hire staff to help you if you can’t take on all the work you’ve set yourself. It’s now possible to outsource companies to take phonecalls for you and even manage emails. You may have to take on less work or hire a babysitter occasionally to focus on your business, but don’t think you have to drop all other commitments to make a business succeed.
