How easy is it to start a business? January 18, 2008

For me this should be one of the easiest questions to answer!

Basically, it’s as easy as you make it — well for us it was anyway, lol!

If you know what you want to do, starting an online business should really just fall into place — if you really have to go against the grain as it were to get a business going, then personally I don’t think you should be trying that type of business …. there are many occasions when that has been wrong for sure … but if your going to operate the right kind of business then it will come easily to you I think.

I think the easiest business to start is one that begins with a hobby — why? … well, because you already do the core of the business every time you do your hobby, and because you enjoy your hobby, it makes starting a business from it that much easier!

Now, if your sat there thinking to yourself “I have no idea what kind of business I can start” then your not ready to be starting your own business, simple — and you need to go get yourself a hobby!

Also if you only want to start a business to make money, then forget that too —- haha, I can hear them now “Start a business NOT to make money” you must be nuts!!

Yep, that’s right, DO NOT go looking to start a business ‘just’ to make money, I think it will fail and you will end up ‘losing’ money, why? …. because your heart won’t be in it, and it won’t be what you ‘really’ want to do.

I think one of the things that is wrong with ‘business’ today is that a lot of them are only ‘in business’ to make money, and that is wrong — a businesses first port of call should be to give the customer what they want, something they need, and then if they make money from it, all the better!

Something funny usually happens when you give a customer something they want … you generally make money from it … simply because they really enjoy and appreciate what you have offered them, and are willing to pay for it too!

Sure I could get millions of pounds and ‘persuade’ people to ‘think’ they want and need my products, but why would I want to do that when deep down I know that really they hate what I have to offer, and don’t really ‘want’ my product??

Anyhoo, I’m going off on a tangent here, and some of you make think I haven’t really answered the question “How easy is it to start a business” … but like I said in the beginning of this post … I think if you don’t have a hobby, then you don’t have a business idea, and it will be that much harder to start a business ….. get the idea??

Have a good think about it!
