3 Things to Know Before Starting a Small Business

Our company, ProStrategix, has helped several small businesses start up and ensure they realized their dream.  That’s what we do. So when we read Daniel B. Kline’s article “3 Things to Know Before Starting a Small Business” for the Motley Fool, we were surprised. Kline highlighted three key things he thought business owners should know: 

    1. The days never end 
    2. You need to sell 
    3. It can be lonely 

While these are true to some extent, it paints a more negative picture than is warranted.  It’s extremely important to know what you are getting into before you leap, for instance. However, to dampen the hopes of the two-thirds of Americans who dream of opening a small business is a bit harsh. Therefore, we would like to offer an alternative to Mr. Kline’s list.   

Your business is doing well. But what’s next? ProStrategix knows how to help. Read some of our other articles below, or feel free to connect with us and get a FREE thirty-minute consulting session.

3. Get Help

While it is true that it will be lonely, at times. It may also feel like the days will never end, etc. But, that’s only if you don’t get the help you need.  Help isn’t cheap, but a penny invested wisely in the beginning, will save, earn, or both dollars in the long-run. Finally, the last thing to know before starting your new business is where to turn for help, and more importantly to be smart about adding to your business’s team.

Never be Discouraged from Following a Dream

The truth is that small business makes up ½ of the US economy and ½ of the total US employment.   It’s important to know what you are doing before starting a new business.  While it’s not a walk in the park, running a small business can be a very rewarding experience. Follow our three things to know before starting your small business will only help.
