Starting a small business? What do you really need?

Most of us want to pursue our hobbies into a ‘side hustle’ but without having the stamina or key skills to start. This is where support groups and finding the right mentors really help.

There are a lot of people who claim they can help, but with many jumping on this bandwagon, I would proceed with caution as to who you listen to.

Clubhouse in particular is full of them, but at least you get a chance to make your mind up through voice, because you cannot hide your voice and so therefore it can be viewed as an authenticity test and it’s a great warming up platform.

Have a good look at your own skill set before you embark on your business idea and do a simple SWOT analysis. It’s an old but gold business exercise.

Categorising and knowing your strengths and weaknesses is one of the things we do in my Creative Thinking Challenge. Here is the link to join in.
