Start your own business
If you are thinking about starting your own business, it’s important to know what you want to achieve and why you’re going out on your own.
You should have a rough idea of what you want to do, and how you want to do it, but that doesn’t mean having a rigid business plan, just be honest with yourself.
If you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life
What do you want to be?
Let’s be honest, in the start up world, the self employed and small businesses far out number the big tech start ups many times over, but most courses, articles and books assume that we all want to be the next big thing!
Focus on your passion
Whether you want to be the next Elon Musk or just want to spend time doing what you enjoy, the decisions you make and your own preferences will have a greater impact on the approach you take than any article or book you’re told to read or course you attend.
be prepared to pivot
One great approach is the Lean start up, which suggests that a plan is a set of questions not answers, and as we ask each question you learn more, pivot and get closer to the final shape of your business.
