Steps to Starting a Business - Step 5

Do your Research

Yes, another of the steps to starting a business is more research! If you have followed the previous steps and researched a variety of things, not it is time to research the business model you have chosen.

It's important to know what you are getting into and almost impossible to be successful by just jumping into an industry without having some idea of how it works.

Before you spend lots of money and re-mortgage the house make sure you have a good idea of what is involved and what you will need to succeed.

If you are looking at a specific business, make a list of questions (many of them may have come out of the previous steps) and start getting answers before you jump in feet first. My advice is not to spend any money before you know the answers to these questions.

Research the company using Google, forums and a variety of places on the Internet. See what other people are saying and if possible, find someone that is prepared to speak to you about the company or business opportunity that you are considering.

Most reputable business models should have someone that is willing to speak to prospective business partners.

For example, Site Build It, the company that I mention throughout this site just because they are solid, reputable and help normal people like you and I build websites that work, give you the option of speaking to a real business owner before you commit.
