This the first of a series of posts about the life-cycle of a business.
First, we will start with the things you need to know and consider when you are starting your small business.
But don’t stop reading if you have already started your business, or if you believe you are operating a “mature” business! You may still learn a thing or two about setting up successful businesses, and you can still use some of these strategies to improve your growth or spurt the next cycle of expansion.
In this post, I will start with making sure you understand why you are starting your small business. In the next few weeks, I will talk about all the things you need to consider, and then later the “how” or steps to take, how to check your business idea through a feasibility check, planning, hiring your first employee, and setting up standard operating procedures.
