The Challenges of Starting Your Own Business

Once the challenges of formulating a business plan, getting venture capital and deciding on the type of business venture to pursue, then the business owner can start his own business. It has been said however that more time is spent owning one’s business than working on a job. The business owner has the challenge to allot time and effort into the business until it gets to a state of sustainability.

One of the biggest challenges of starting your own business is the start-up or venture capital that is required for the products, equipment, services or supplies for sustainability. Many small business owners have used their own capital, which consists of savings or a credit card. The small business owners got to have an excellent credit score to get the bank loan officer to provide the capital if they seek to start the business in another channel instead of using savings or credit cards.

Because online businesses are easy to start, prospective business owners are using online sources to get venture capital. A helpful website is the GoBigorGoHome.com which seeks business owners who need financial help to get their business started. The request for startup capital is only second of importance to preparing a business plan which is also a challenge to starting your own business.

A business plan is written document and should be prepared before the seeking of venture capital to start your own business. The business plan is simple and templates can be found on line with a Google search as a directive to get it started. Basically, the business plan explains what the business is about and how the owner plans to accomplish why he or she decided to go into business. The business plan consists of where the business is to be located and the prospective costs involve in the overhead and the number of employees required running the business.

After drawing up the business plan, the two biggest challenges of starting a business would have bee accomplished. The startup capital would have been sought through the proper channels based upon the business owners’ assets and the ability to start a business with savings, a credit card or a bank loan. The business plan would have been constructed with the help of a business consultant if necessary to get started on the best location for the business.

Just as in real estate, location is important to the sustainability of a business. Because of the economy it is not uncommon to find churches and nightclubs within the same vicinity because of limited retail places to conduct business. Location most likely has to be settled with the local Chambers of Commerce or with the City Council in regards to building a business in a particular vicinity if the business was not already existing.

Another challenge of starting your own business is the fact that small businesses are more susceptible to fail because of the multitude of entrepreneurs wanting to be their own boss without proper business planning or business knowledge. The small business owner looking to start a business needs to consult the Small Business Administration, SBA, for assistance and business knowledge in starting a business. The SBA cannot offer business loans but the organization can guarantee loans such as Fannie Mae, which is a government organization.

The challenge of getting started and taking the first step to begin a business proposes a problem as well. Ideas are plentiful in regards to starting a business. It is the business that has been sold that is more likely to prosper because the business was a fledging business at one time. Franchises are another type of business that requires capital but is a cookie cutter aspect of starting a business. All that is required to start a franchise is the business capital. The franchises are the easiest business to start but it is a challenge as well if the location is not strategically placed in which to make a profit.

Once the challenges of formulating a business plan, getting venture capital and deciding on the type of business venture to pursue, then the business owner can start his own business. It has been said however that more time is spent owning one’s business than working on a job. The business owner has the challenge to allot time and effort into the business until it gets to a state of sustainability.
