The beginning of a new year is fresh with promise. For many people it is a time for reflection. We may summarise in our minds (or on paper if we are particularly organised) all of the positive and negative facets of the year that has passed. If we are wise, we draw conclusions and learn from what has happened previously and build on those conclusions in our plans for the new year. This time for reflection can lead us to the determination to follow our dreams and start a new business.
In drawing on our experiences from the past, it is likely that most people who have resolved to start the year in this way know where their strengths and passions lie and therefore what they would like to do. It might be a hairdressing business, a management consultancy, a music studio, a pest control company – it could be anything. If you know yourself, you know what you do best. The question then arises: How do I do it?
Expertise and all the passion in the world for one subject is by no means a guarantee of success. An individual who is excellent at plastering, cake-making, or computer programming, does by no means have the skillset to make it work. Business sense is a way of thinking that is frequently passed down generations; but what if your parents, or grandparents were not involved in the business side of the professions and vocations from which they derived their incomes?
