Even the most motivated entrepreneurs can struggle with deciding on the right business idea.
When I took the leap into entrepreneurship I choose a path that I was already familiar with. At the time I considered never returning to corporate America I was a bookkeeper at a prestigious business management firm in Beverly Hills. I had been working in the field of accounting for 10 years and was well versed in the operations of the business.
I had a love for numbers and a natural ability to manage money, so it was a no brainer that I venture out to start my own bookkeeping and accounting company.
For me I choose a path that was seamless, a path that was easy and knowledgeable.
For some entrepreneurs, ideas flow freely but never get off the ground. For others, ideas are vague and unsure so are discarded and never fully explored. Deciding on the right business idea has as much to do with creating a business plan and feasibility as it does with doing some soul searching.
If you want to become self-employed but are not sure what type of business, you want to start it helps to consider the following:
What do you want or need to get out of the business?
What do you like to do?
What are you good at doing?
What would you like to learn to do?
You need to honest about your strengths and weaknesses to become an entrepreneur and no matter what business you start it also helps to be resourceful and have strong networking skills.
