How to start your own business?

Post by Breezey Breezey on Thu Apr 28, 2016 10:32 am

Have you ever wanted to start your own business? 
Did you ever have to bid on work and not have a clue what was even close to a decent bid? Did you ever wonder how others got started? 
Did you ever feel at a total loss on where to begin to get the answers you need?

I've got 3 words of advice: Research, research, research! Where to start? The internet, of course.

You may also be able to get some good advice from places such as your local library or chamber of commerce.

Do they have any employment schemes there that help and educate you on beginning a new business? That could be a good place to start. Years ago, I started my own business, leadlighting. I started by learning the trade through a local group of people getting together to socialise at the same time as feel productive.. and to have that "time" to be You outside of being a Mum. I had not originally started out with the idea of running a leadlight business.. but people seen my work and wanted me to do commissions for them. Then I put an ad in the local paper and it went from there... I believe the first thing to get started is to come up with an idea of something you love to do and feel would be marketable... Google this scheme we have here.. New Enterprise Incentive Scheme (NEIS) Good luck Breezey. You can do whatever you put your mind to. (:

The business I want to start is not something so much a trade or skill in an artsy way...just that there is a demand for it and I have plenty of experience...
the bidding part...bidding on jobs to see if you get the job... I have no clue how to figure it beyond actual cost of supplies.... hmmm...

I guess I can only tell you the rule of thumb I go by with selling my art.. and what I was taught.. You sell what you make at a cost 3 times what it cost you to create. For example.. If it costs me $100 to paint and frame an artwork.. I will sell it for $300 or thereabouts. Framing is very expensive and people expect to pay that and more.. especially if they connect with what you have painted.. The same would apply to anything you make I guess.. You just have to find the right market and marketable item to make.

I plan on starting out small...clean a couple of houses... make $3 more an hour than I am now and maybe, eventually, take on one small business to clean.
