Nowadays, almost every one out of 5 people wants to be an entrepreneur. The epidemic of startup has consumed every creative mind of our generation. Everyday hundreds of startup pop their heads in the global market in an attempt to achieve what their predecessors in the entrepreneurial domain did. Venturing on a startup requires a long-term technical, functional, financial and emotional dedication. A lot of hard work and continuous efforts with consistent determination go into building a startup. However, these are not the only aspects which can make or break a startup and these are 7 must things which every aspiring young entrepreneur should consider before launching a startup.
Businesses are based on ideas which when powered by hard-work can turn into a business.
So its very much important that the idea behind the startup should be clear in one’s mind. It is crucial that to recognize the strength, potential opportunities, weakness of the idea.
Ever tried looking for a razor sharp blade in a room filled with broken glass pieces while being blindfolded? Seems difficult, does’t it? The chances of cutting yourself and bleeding to death are considerably high. The same analogy can be applied in the business domain as well. After you get a new business startup idea, then it is imperative that you must not fumble in the dark and instead do a proper market research to ensure that your business idea is actually viable.
All the top business ideas are now known by their names, if not by the names of their founders. An effective, memorable business name can draw the line between failure and success. Deciding a name is one of the most important aspects of startup planning process as it should be. The name which you decide must reflect the type of business you to venture in and it should be well thought out.
Will you ever buy a car that does not start, so it wont take you to your destination? Or maybe purchase a computer which is incapable of processing data for your work? I suppose the answer is no, and the reason behind that is null value proposition. Every business entrepreneur must question themselves about what value does the startup bring into the world? If they don’t, then they will very soon be Obsolete.
The Will to do the Tough Work:
You must have probably heard it a gazillion times, but it is so important that it begs the question: Are you committed to your startup idea? Coming up with an idea is the easier part, its staying and preserving that idea which is the tough part. Pick up any entrepreneur’s story, and you will hardly find it to be full of smooth sails. So if you are not willing to do the hard work, consistently for an unforeseen period of time, then maybe startup is not your game.
“If you want to walk fast, walk alone, but if you want to walk far, walk together.”
Any Entrepreneur worth their salt will know the great man who said these golden words. You cannot do everything on your own. You cannot be the manager, the thinker, the developer, the marketer or the distributor all at once. You will need people who can align their synergistic efforts with one vision, the startup! Do not partner with someone because its convenient, but do so only if they share your vision.
Nothing moves in the world without money! Not even charities. So it is absurd to think that a startup will survive without a strong financial planning and backup. Before you jump into the startup craze, always ensure that your finances are taken care of.
Most of the startups fail because they do not consider the realistic issues which can haunt their business venture. Pick My Story will continue to inform you about such aspects so that your startup wont succumb to anything. Stay tuned for more!
