Little Money = Getting Motivated for Sales!

Apr 1, 2012 | Starting Up, Know Thyself First

Starting on a shoestring budget is hard. It takes much longer for the business to reach a stable point, but puts much less risk on your personal finances.

Starting a business takes money

Unless you are one of the lucky ones, you will soon find out that not everyone will want your product or service. Once you open your business doors, you may find that people who said, “What a neat idea,” don’t think that the product is something that they really need or want.

Now, you have your start-up costs (business cards, computer, printer, phone, PO box, product development, etc.) and no cash coming in. This is where one of two things usually happens.

Close for Business

You close up shop and learn from your experience for the next time. This is not really giving up – you have learned a great deal this first time around. Next time, you will make the changes necessary to choose and build a great business.
