1. Believe in Yourself: As touchy-feely as it may sound, successfully starting a new business requires belief in your ability to succeed. Leave your preconceived notions about what people will and will not be willing to do in a post-pandemic economy at the door. If you start out thinking that financial struggles and an uncertain economy will make it hard for your business to succeed, then your business will probably not succeed.
2. Plan Thoroughly: If your goal is to work at least some of the time from home, do yourself a big favor and set aside a dedicated office space. It should be a place that’s comfortable but free of distractions, away from the rest of your family. If that requires some renovations to get you the space you need, don’t worry. As an added benefit, such improvements also raise your home’s appraisal value!
Also, it’s never too early to start planning how you can protect your business – and your customers – against a cyber attack. After all, hackers will often target smaller businesses just because they sometimes have more lax security than larger corporations.
3. Capitalize on Opportunities: The COVID-19 pandemic has created opportunities and growth in industries such as digital payments, robotics, and telehealth. These industries are likely to play a critical role in controlling the spread of the coronavirus and building a more resilient society in the coming years. In addition to opportunities for businesses that operate in these industries, there is a need for businesses to provide support structures.
4. Build a Support Team: Few new businesses have the staff to handle every aspect of their operations. You may need a formation service to assist you with forming your business as a limited liability company. A service can help you enjoy the tax advantages, paperwork reduction, and liability protection that come with forming an LLC without having to do all the research on state regulations or pay expensive attorney fees.
