Starting A Start Up – Covering The Essentials

By Rob Huddlestone

It’s unlikely that anyone who has ever battled through a morning rush-hour, or just missed that train home after a long day hasn’t thought to themselves, “If I was the boss I would…”. It’s the most attractive part of being the boss, control of how a business runs. There is a caveat to this however, and that is that the decisions that are made need to be within the context of the business succeeding its goals and becoming successful – it can be more difficult than it may first seem from the outside.

There are things you can do to ensure that your business is not just a flash in the pan and has a chance of becoming everything you want it to be. One of the best things to do at the beginning is to get as much advice as possible from those who are experienced, have been there and done it. Get this advice, take it and learn from it, you will at least then have a chance at starting on the front foot.

One of the most important things for any new start-up is to build up a good reputation and name for themselves. Therefore, your first orders can be the most important and so it can pay dividends later on to ensure they are met and where possible, expectations are exceeded. This means having the correct machinery, equipment and raw materials to meet any early orders straight away, right from the off.

When it comes to putting money into the business it can be even more important to get some sound advice – especially if you haven’t had much experience working with financial information before. This is where an accountant can come in; at first they should be able to assist with how you will manage the financials from the beginning as well as do the ground work to ensuring best practice with your books. This will save a lot of time and heartache later on, especially if you have to do a tax return!

One of the most testing parts of being the boss of your own company is the tricky business of having to find the right staff. There are many different things to consider when looking at who to add to your team, good guidelines to follow in the beginning are to go for those you can trust and who are least likely to let you down when you most need them – qualities that are hard to gauge from an interview and as a result it is important to not get disheartened if your first few hires aren’t perfect, keep persisting and you will find the right people and don’t forget, it doesn’t hurt to keep continually looking for talent.

These are only the basic considerations for a start-up. If you are serious about running a business ensure you research your niche and are aware of what is involved before you dive in head first. It can be a scary place when you first enter, but with the right amount of effort and some luck there is no reason why being your own boss can’t become a reality.
