Building a Strong Business Foundation in 3 Steps

Filed under: Uncategorized

Starting your own business is an exciting idea, but not an easy task to complete. It is important that, from early on, you build a strong business foundation. It will take time and effort. If you are a young and energetic owner, chances are you are anxious about getting started. It is important, however, that you take the time to consider these steps to ensure your future success. For one thing, you’ll want to find a good source of financing, and you may even ask your family, as MSE founder Yoel Wazana asked his brother Avi for startup help when the company was in its infancy.

Discover Your Niche and Target Market

The first layer of your business foundation should be laid prior to anything else. This layer consists of discovering your niche and target market. While you may have the most amazing idea in the world, you want to make sure it will work for your community. Research the demographics and companies in your area. Is there a group that will benefit from your idea? Are there other companies who already sell something similar? The answers to these two questions will help you form that all important first layer.

Talk to Investors

The second layer of the foundation is laid as you talk with possible investors. While many business owners wish they could be self-sufficient from the beginning, the truth is that businesses cost a lot to start. There are a variety of sources you may want to consider approaching for an investment. As mentioned above, you can approach your family. You can also turn to more traditional financial resources such as a bank or credit union or other groups of investors.

Regardless of which source you decide to use, it is important to make sure you are well-organized for your presentation. Consider creating a business plan and passing it out to each person involved. This way, they have an idea of what their money will be supporting.

Don’t Overextend Yourself

First-time business owners may feel the need to take on every task themselves. The third layer of your foundation, however, is designed to keep you from doing just that. Consider hiring a staff or connecting with friends who are willing to help you for free. There are many hats that a business owner must wear, but sharing the load will help you focus more on your product.

Creating a sturdy foundation is important to the success of any company. Take the time to form these three layers and any others you need and enjoy the success that follows.
