One of the big obstacles in my way is that I am not sure if I will need to re-locate next year. As a result, it’s hard for me to decide what to sell and where. Do I need to know the answers to these questions before I can really move forward or is there stuff I can do NOW without this information? I would love to hear some opinions on what I can do that will carry over to any type of business I might have. I’m talking nuts and bolts.
Months back, I thought I should start by doing some informational interviewing and was hoping to find a mentor. Unfortunately, it was hard to find people who were willing to share. A business plan seems like the next logical step but I think I still have too many unknowns. So, I’m wondering if there are things I can do to prepare for a business that don’t require answers to those two questions (i.e., what are you going to sell? Where?). I’ve gotten the suggestion to read over the “10 Steps to Open Business” which I plan to do very soon but I am wondering if anyone has more suggestions. Again, I’m interested in the nuts and bolts because I am a blank slate. I know there’s no “right” way to start a business but would love to hear people’s thoughts. Thanks, everyone!
