Getting entrepreneurial #2: let`s start

For quite a while now, I had the idea in mind to start a business. Unfortunately, no idea came to my mind. In the past few days, I did a mental to-do-list on what I know and what I can really do. I tried also to see what I need to learn to do….something which I haven`t yet figured out that I want to do.

Easier to say: I did a SWOT of myself. It seems that, in the “S” part of the analysis, I didn`t find to many things to put. I will continue to thinking about it.images

The “opportunities” part included, mainly, things that I want/need to learn. I needed extra “space” in my head to get that done (took it from the “strengths” part).

Overall, it seems that I need to quit having free time and go to work…on anything my mind puts me up to.

The conclusion: you first need to do a self-analysis. In order to start a business, you should try a find out if you can become an entrepreneur by yourself or if you need someone else to help you. You may be brilliant on the technical part (of your idea), but the business side also counts.

 

P.S.: I just finished a big list of things that I want to learn and test.

After months of receiving unemployment aid and barely able to surface, he had a very tough choice ahead.

Greg thought about it, weighing advantages and disadvantages, creating SWOTs and everything that a person who has a choice in front of it will do. READ MORE!

Academia #5: Better SWOT analyses

Local development strategies have long been a reason for argument because they are developed through outdated methods and procedures that might not show the present situation.

The realization and implementation of the local development strategy in an organized and continuous manner, based on a well realized model, can lead, in a time horizon of 10 years to a rural space development that can be quantified through removing development disparities. READ MORE HERE
