Want To Open A Small Business?

Apr 1, 2008
Since the beginning of our country it has always been part of the American dream to have your own business. People envision that it will be wonderful to be their own boss, dictate orders to their employees, have control of all the money, and be able to take off work whenever they like! Well, like the saying goes, it is a dream.

In all actuality, running your own small business can be anything but a dream, especially in the beginning. There are more details to be taken care of than you probably ever imagined. Setting up a business requires tremendous time and effort and if you go into it with the notion that you can take off work anytime you like, then you may as well not even start one.

In the first place, the majority of really small businesses will start off with only a few employees and begin running on a shoestring budget. If one of your employees suddenly can not show up for work at the last minute or have to be out for several days, guess who will likely end up having to fill in for them? It will probably be you unless you have an immediate back up plan. What about when someone quits out of the blue without a notice? What if the job that is vacated requires training? When you have to retrain someone for the position, who do you think will be doing that? Sometimes a small business has a hard time staying running because of all the unexpected problems that are sometimes not planned for.

Small setbacks are a part of any business, but with small businesses they can sometimes become a make or break circumstance. It is very important to think out all the pitfalls and be as prepared for the worst as you can because it sometimes seems that the worst will happen more often than the best. This is not to say that you should always be skeptical or have a negative attitude, but is vitally essential to be prepared for whatever comes up if you want your business endeavor to survive.

If you hire employees, screen them well and make sure as best you can that they have what it takes to be dependable and will do a good job for you. Teamwork is important and it is always good for a boss to make the employees feel like they are part of progress. Being high handed and having that bossy attitude does not work with most people, especially if you are not paying them a lot.
