Workbook: Wanting to Run Your Own Business?

This workbook is designed as a practical step-through guide for those considering going into business for the first time.  It will give you clear visibility of what it takes to go into business, clarity around how you go about setting up or buying a business and will provide valuable tips on avoiding costly mistakes. 


You will begin the journey to discover for yourself whether owning a business is a wise decision for you at this time.  It will extend and challenge you to really think things through. Starting a business can be a very daunting prospect – should you, shouldn’t you? What have you got to lose?  Do you realise what is involved and what things you need to consider?  By working through a logical process, you will begin to understand the level of business acumen you need to be successful, the sacrifices you will need to make and the potential pitfalls you should avoid.


If you go into business with commitment and self-belief and have a realistic idea of what to expect, you will have a much greater chance of succeeding and have fun doing it! It will take a lot of effort and dedication, particularly in the early days.


At the conclusion of this workbook, you should be in a much better position to make an informed decision:

·       Yes you are up for it;

·       Yes you want to but not quite ready yet; or

·       No, you don’t think it is for you.


 If you are up for the challenge and follow a good process, it can be a very positive, life-changing decision!
