Tips for setting up your own business
(3:07) “So the first one is Define your personal parameters. Now, my first premise is always that you have to define what ‘success’ looks like for you – of course, that’s the name of the whole podcast so hopefully, that’s not too surprising. You have to define ‘what’ you want – before you come up with a plan and get to the ‘how’ you’re going to get there.”
(7:45) “In a nutshell, it’s a plan for how you will run your business, including who your customers are, what products and services you will offer, the pricing and packaging and how you will make money how you will market and reach those customers the investment needed for all those things. These different pieces all need to build on each other to ultimately deliver your version of success, that would include your financial targets, those logistics again of when and where you will work, and any other aspects that are important to you.”
(13:33) “Be honest with yourself and have a think about what challenges you might come up against, where your knowledge and skills gaps are, and where and how you can get the help you need.”
