Be the Captain of your own ship
You’re tired of the monotony of the nine-to-five working day, and you’ve had a great business idea. You’ve run it past your friends and family and they have offered lots of support and encouragement, and you are more motivated, enthusiastic and determined than ever.
Your vision of finding freedom by becoming your own boss is formed. This is it – you have made the decision and you are about to set sail.
But how do you pull up the anchor with confidence, turn your vision into practice, and hit the vast open waters of self-employment?
There are lots of questions about how to start a business, lots of options, and uncertainty about which way to turn. The reality is that you may be stuck in the harbour going around in circles until you can gain some clarity.
You are not alone.
Nwes Business Advisors meet with clients every single day who feel exactly the same way as you. Clients, who have a great business idea and are resolute about taking the plunge to become self-employed, but are in need of some guidance and somebody to help them negotiate obstacles and answer their questions along the way.
Business Advisors, Ian Bird and Paul Walmsley shared with us the most common questions they are asked when they meet with clients for the first time:
- How do I find business funding?
- Should I become a limited company, or a sole trader? What’s the difference?
- How do I find the right company name and logo for me?
- How much money do I need to spend on a website?
- How important is social media?
- Do I need an accountant?
- How do I write a business plan?
- Do you think it’s a good idea?
Despite the commonality of the questions, the answers may vary from person to person because the reality is that you are about to become the Captain of your own ship – and you can steer it in whichever way you choose.
There may be choppy waters ahead, or it may be smooth sailing, but with Nwes here to offer business advice and support, you can be sure that we will help you to adjust your sails accordingly, so you can enjoy the voyage ahead.
