“Why do I want to run my own business?” This is the first of six questions to you ask yourself when considering self-employment

Deciding to start up your own business is an exciting step, one with many twist and turns and challenges! Many of my clients come to me with an idea, but are not sure of how to put it into action. For some, it’s the desire to “Be the Boss” but a worry about the financial implications. For others, they have already taken the leap, and are now working on the right balance between work, family and their own well-being.

Self employment questionsBelieve me when I tell you there is no, one, simple answer. I don’t have a magic formula or tick sheet you can follow; everyone has their own talents, circumstances and vision in life.

What I can tell you, is that the best plans start with the right questions! With this in mind, I present the other five questions you need to ask yourself when “starting up” and the blogs that are MY answers, when I asked myself the same thing!

How much money do I need? (And how to survive on less money!)

What can I sell? (And how to present you skills and services to the world!)

When can I work? (And how to manage your work-life balance, especially when the kids are around)

How and where can I get clients from? (And how to be great online and networking!)

Who can help me? (And the lessons I learnt in my first year in business)

Your answers hold the skeleton of your plan; now you have to decide the FIRST thing you need to do, for each, to make it happen!
