Starting a successful business takes more than having an amazing product or providing a great service. It takes preparation and a wide set of skills. Knowing what order to do things in and who to contact can keep you from losing precious time and money during the start-up phase of your new business. Steps such as writing a detailed business plan can ensure that you do not miss anything critical that will prevent you from opening your doors on schedule.
Many small business owners are also their own general managers, bookkeepers, marketing/IT specialists, safety coordinator, human resource departments and so on. Educating yourself on the basics in the area can help you make smart decisions about when you may need to outsource certain tasks, hire someone with specific skills, learn to do it yourself, etc.
