You need to plan your business in exactly the same way whether you own a shop, manufacture toys, run a school, do accounts etc.
What is the purpose of your business?
Here are some questions to ask yourself?
- What is my business?
- Who are my customers?
- Why would they want to buy from me?
- Who are my competitors?
- How can I differentiate myself from them - what is my personal/business brand?
- How am I going to market my business?
- How much money do I need to set up my business?
- What assets do I need to set up my business?
- Will I need staff or other resources?
- Am I going to do this full-time or part-time?
Once you understand the purpose of your business, it becomes easier to focus on what you need to do in terms of setting up your blog site so it will attract the right customers.
Ninety percent of businesses fail in the first year. Most businesses do not make profits for the first few years and chew more cash than you can imagine.
Running a business is not for the faint hearted but once you have been self-employed it gets into your blood and is difficult to go back to being an employee.

A bit about me:
I started using computers in the mid-80s and have been passionate about technology ever since. Among my many careers, I owned my own Microsoft End User Software and Pastel Accounting & Payroll Training Centre. I have helped small businesses set up business systems and provide one on one training for the technology challenged.
For the past 5 years I have been developing websites using Joomla and to a lesser extent Wordpress.
I started Braving Technology because my passion is to help small businesses move into the digital age and to have a functional website which works for their business and the right social media to help them get their message out there. You can read more about me here.
