·Do I have the job skills necessary to be successful at such a business? While desire can be a strong driving force, one still needs to know how to drive to reach their goal. While it's not necessary to possess every skill needed for the business you're contemplating on opening, you at least have to identify such skills and determine if you have the time, energy, and/or resources to learn them and/or to ask for outside help in performing various tasks such as bookkeeping or marketing. Answering this question thoroughly also involves analyzing whether you have the right personality to get the job done. If you're not a "people person" and you're considering opening a beauty parlor in your home, you might want to re-evaluate if such a career is the best use of your capabilities.
Most successful entrepreneurs have a strong passion for their ideas or concepts. They know what they want and they know what they enjoy doing. Their work becomes their play. The secret to success in business is to find your passion. Know specifically what it is you want in life. You need to be certain that what you are doing is something that you really and truly want. This is not something that you should want, or that someone else wants. It is something that YOU personally really want.
Imagine you've found your business passion. Picture yourself running your very own dream business. You love every minute of it and your work becomes your play. Consider what effect this will have on your life - now and in the future.
There's no doubt that making the ultimate decision to be self-employed can be both liberating and frightening at the same time. When you go the extra mile and take the time to identify the line of work that will best suit you, you'll be able to appreciate the fact that, for every day you invest in making such an important decision, you'll potentially be adding quality years to the life expectancy of the business you've given birth to.
