The Key To Success In Small Businesses Small businesses are a great way to generate a full or part time income. Starting and profiting from a small business is easy if you follow some basic rules. Find a product or service that sells. That sounds easy doesn't it? Well its a lot harder than you think. Lots of people have great ideas but if the market is not there then you are banging your head against a brick wall. Trying to create a market for a product or service is a very hard job, and usually costs a lot of money in marketing costs. My advice is leave that to the big boys. The best way to begin is to find a market that already exists, and look at how you can do it cheaper and better. It's a lot better to take a small slice of a big cake, than a huge slice of a cake that has not yet been baked. Big companies are notoriously bad at offering good service, by starting up as a small business you can focus on offering a better service, and slowly take your share of the market. Another way to make your small business work is to keep your costs down. If you can work from home then you have a winner. Overheads are one of the major things that put small businesses out of business. If you can keep them to a minimum then you will have a much better chance of success. Start small. Don't over commit yourself by taking out large loans to start up. Most small business can be started with less than £1000. If your business has a large repayment to make every month, then you are less likely to succeed than someone else that does not have that overhead. Don't offer credit, get your customers to pay upfront, or when the product or service has been delivered. That way you do not have cash flow problems, which is another killer of small and large business. I know of companies that have gone bust with full order books, only because they have given their customers 3 months credit and they do not have the money in to pay the wages bill. If you are a reseller of a product or service, then shop around for the best prices for your supplies. You may find that the difference in prices between wholesalers can be enough to determine the success or failure of your business. A great small business to start up in my opinion is Forex trading. You can start up relatively cheaply, as long as you have a PC and an internet connection. Its a very specialized business though and you have to know what you are doing. The best advice I can give you is to find a successful Forex trader and get them to teach you how to trade. It may take you a while to learn to trade Forex but it is a very rewarding business financially and you can work around your current lifestyle as the hours are very flexible.
