Starting your own business
I have a new baby, it's going to take a lot of time, love, and care to bring this baby up.
My new baby is my business, and boy was I wrong when I thought you could just grab a business name and you're off.
I had over 60 tasks that I needed to complete for my business to get off on the right foot.
Some of the tasks I have undertaken are selecting a business name, domain name, email address, website, social media, accounting package, business cards, brochures, advertising, marketing, and promotion.
So, how did I work out what to do when? What about certain tasks which have pre-requisites, that need to be completed before I can move forward?
I got some very astute advice, don't try to do everything at once. Create a 12 week plan and fit all the tasks into that plan.
Now I fell behind in that plan, but it was great having something tangible that I could use as a reference.
Whether you're starting a new business (like me) or have a large project to complete, I'd strongly advise you to create a plan.
It is working for me!
