Successful business ideas are based on a handful of key factors, including the amount of competition that exists, the demand for your product or service, and your ability to manage the many details of launching and building a small business. Sufficient startup and operating capitol is also vital for new business, as is the ability to meet your personal needs and obligations — especially until your positive cash flow comfortably exceeds your expenses.
Starting your own business can bring with it a lot of opportunity and independence, but it also entails a degree of risk and uncertainty. In addition to doing a preliminary self-assessment of your financial resources and readiness to be your own boss, it’s also advisable to consult with an experienced accountant (preferably a CPA), a business insurance advisor, and possibly an attorney — depending on the legal complexities of your business.
