10 Tips for starting a business in 2012

January 30, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

There are countless lists of tips for starting a business.  No list is exhaustive, and each list usually contains at least one good point.

The Gannon Small Business Development Center recently posted this article on starting a small business in 2012.  The list contains some very good, very practical suggestions.  I really like numbers 8, 9, and 10.  However, I think the most important is #6: developing a solid marketing plan.

Too frequently, entrepreneurs jump into an endeavor without a solid grasp of who the customer will be, what the competition is doing, or without performing a thorough SWOT analysis.  I can tell you that, even as an attorney, a SWOT analysis is important to the success of my practice.

So, check out the article, do your homework, and if you have a good idea, consider attending one of the “First Step” classes at the Gannon SBDC.
