The Way It Is!
What's it like to owning a business? I found business ownership to be intensely creative, challenging, and stimulating; a very rewarding experience at the end of the day.
For individuals who would want to venture into business ownership, either starting from scratch, or buying an existing business wholly or a franchise, The Way It Is provides an honest, insider's window into the process of business ownership. Many would be entrepreneurs certainly have many questions just as I had before I founded Eastern Pharmaceuticals, questions like:
How do I find a good business idea? Or, is the idea I have good enough?
How do I obtain the money to start a company?
Can I live on a reduced income until my company gets on its feet?
Can I run a successful business, raise children, and still have a normal family life?
What personal qualities does it take to found a successful business and do I have them?
What education and experience is the best preparation for becoming an entrepreneur?
What if I fail?
As I built my business I learned answers to these questions and many others. I hope that by sharing what I learned, you can improve your chance of success and minimize your mistakes.
What Must I Do to Start a Business?
The specific business you choose will have a significant impact on the work you perform every day. However, many tasks are the same across all types of businesses ? things like obtaining permits, paying taxes, managing daily operations.......Start-up Resources.
Your Money or Other People's Money?
