    I have experienced most of these and indeed, once you try, don't stop and don't give up. One day all your work will be paid off and when you look back, you will be proud of yourself.

    You should at least observe or conduct studies on your target business. For instance, the factors you should consider upon starting it.

    Tandy, as we tend to work for more than 12 hours a day (guessing), I would guage where am I in my life. I'd look at fellow start ups, case studies, meet them in person to know more on and then learn on the lifestyle picked up to manage the time.

    First, you need to have a Personal evaluation by Begin by taking stock of yourself and your situation. Why do you want to start a business? Is it money, freedom, creativity, or some other reason? What skills do you have? What industries do you know about? Would you want to provide a service or a product? What do you like to do? How much capital do you have to risk? Will it be a full-time or a part-time venture? Your answers to these types of questions will help you narrow your focus.

    When I started a freelance B2B service operation (commercial copywriting, marketing) the first and most important lesson I learned was about meeting potential clients, building relationships, and networking. I know other businesses operate differently, but you still have to have a clear idea of how you're going to drive business. For a web-based business, that might involve careful SEO and social media engagement. For a person-to-person business service, it'll probably mean a lot of meeting people and building relationships. For straight B2C commerce, you probably have a totally different set of concerns -- that's the area I'm least qualified to comment on.

    As for me I would like most to learn about ways to differentiate my products and services from my competitors'. Many people around the world can have a similar idea for their online business. So it's very important to come up with some new and unique ideas for the construction of your online business

    People have money and are looking for ways to spend it. But launching in tough or uncertain economic times can be just as smart.

    Well, I think most small business owners need a comprehensive check list and perhaps a bit of training on taking a holistic approach to their business. Some folks are good at selling but weak at talking to the banks and securing capital, and visa versa. It would be great if there were affordable and easily accessible training programs for first-time business owners. The government in my country has already started such programs but they are not widely available yet.

    Well starting a new business is not that easy, You should have enough experienced to do business in any business. Still, if have a enough knowledge there are other major components like investments, marketing research, business marketing etc.
    When you are owner of a business, probably you should have aware of financial losses like bad debts, bankruptcy. these can usually affect your business from profit to loss.

    When we put up our computer supplies retailing business, my husband studied the ins and outs of business, i.e. the incoming and outgoing of the merchandise. He started going to prospective suppliers to connect and to check on the prices of the goods. The next step was to understand the products that we are going to sell. That done, the market study follows next. What is business if you have the goods and no one to sell to?

    I think if i am going to start new business i have to learn about the market and first off all i have to find what kind of business is well suited for me with less competition. After that, before i am going to start business, i have to advertise my business with poster, pamphlet, through news paper e.t.c. After starting my business, advertisement still needed through online(internet marketing, digital marketing, smo), offline(poster, luxury business cards) ways.
