There are many reasons why a person or group of people choose to start their own business, from a passionate belief in your new innovation, suddenly becoming unemployed, a belief that you can improve on what is already available, realising your hobby could make you money or simply needing to pay the rent.
In the ever evolving global economic climate start-ups are rising; one in ten Britons is considering starting a business with Italy recording an increase of 9.27% new businesses in 2016. Up to 15% of employed people are already using their hobby to generate income and far more have a hobby that they could turn into a business but haven’t done so yet.
Despite the optimism of the new entrepreneurs it has to be recognised that embarking on a new enterprise requires a level head and a sound business plan as any errors made in the initial stages could irrevocably compromise any hope of success in reaching the target market. It is very worthwhile to obtain advice from a professional advisor before you spend any time or money developing your idea. Nobody wants to put all their effort into a project only to find, after considerable investment in the new business, it is not viable. Before you start if you think you have a brand new idea, thoroughly research it and make sure someone hasn’t beaten you to it. More than one person can, and frequently does, think of the same thing; do not get off on the wrong foot. If you are entering an existing market, methodically study the opposition as they will already have discovered the pitfalls and ways round the problems. Your idea does not have to be brand new you can be a new player in an existing sector but you will have to bring something new or interesting to the potential customers.
