If you are thinking about starting a business, there are numerous questions you need to be sure you answer. This includes making sure you know how much money you’re going to need, what business you’re going into, and what your products or services you are bringing to the table can provide for your potential customers/clients. Consider the following 12 questions to ask when starting a business:


– How ready am I to start this business, and what research and experience do I have to do to implement it successfully?

– What kind of power do I have over my business, and will my customers or suppliers be able to sway me or influence how my business is run?

– What are my current assets, resources, and finances to help me get the business up and running?

– Who are my competitors, and how will I be able to compete or meet my needs in the face of them? If I do have competitors, what sets my business apart?

– Do I have enough money to start up my business, or get to where am I going with the help of loans and investments?

– Who is helping me run this business?

– For a service or product to succeed, it is important to solve problems or meet needs that people have. What are mine?

– Do I need other individuals to help me run this business? Will I be able to give up control when the time comes, or how will I find the right people to help me?

– Am I willing to take risks?

– Will I be able to reach my designated audience as intended and will they truly understand what my product or service is that I’m providing?

– Do I have realistic goals that are aligned with current market trends?
