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.
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.
