STARTING A BUSINESS
A complete analysis of your business will help you discover major areas of improvement that can drive dollars to you bottom line today. Sometime a simple short term cash injection is the answer. You have more options for short term loans than you think - apply for a personal loan for up to $700.
Starting a business and developing your business strategies can be very difficult. Especially if you have little business knowledge and experience. That is one reason business planning for a new business start-up is so important. Without it, you will surely arrive, but where?
A good business plan forces you to think through every scenario and helps you determine the correct business model: quantity, price, quality, service. You should only choose two, such as: quantity & price (Walmart), quality & service (Neiman-Marcus). You can choose to mix them anyway you want; however, keep in mind that you cannot be everything to everyone. Choose the model that best fits your desire for long term planning.
Developing a comprehensive market analysis to determine how many customers are available to you and where they are located could save you years of regret from picking the wrong location and business model. Thorough market research can help you develop realistic revenue and cash flow projections and a realistic start-up expense schedule will help you determine your need for capital. Realizing that financial institutions, as a norm, may only participate up to 70 to 80% of total capital requirements will help you compute your personal contribution to your startup.
One of the major reasons for failure in business is lack of capital. For some reason more than 57% of all people who start businesses fail to recognize the need for capital. They tend to start their businesses on a shoe string, hoping cash will somehow come pouring in. Build it and they will come may be true for baseball, but realistically, it is a pipe dream. Ask anyone who has tried it. Don't be a statistic - make sure you have a realistic plan.
