Every working individual would have a dream of starting his/her own business. But, most of them think that it is impossible to start one while doing a day job. Is it truly impossible? Absolutely not! Let’s take us an instance of expats arriving at Singapore for jobs. Most of the foreigners who apply for Singapore visas through agencies like Visa Express are found to have bright business ideas. Not only these people, several people from across the planet have tons of ideas but what they lack is the knowledge on how to implement those ideas. Now, let’s see how to start your own business while you still have your day job here…
Commit yourself to it:
If you really want to start your own business, the first thing you need to do is to mentally prepare yourself. What I mean in saying mental preparation is that you need to make up your mind that you would not give up even if you face problems in your journey. Also, you need to accept that it’s going to be in tough for you in several ways. Now, I would ask you whether you are ready to make sacrifices. If your answer is a firm ‘yes’, then go ahead with your plans.
Create a List of your Monthly Needs:
After preparing your mind for your business, you need to prepare your current life as well. In order to do this efficiently, I will ask you to create a list of all your monthly commitments along with the expected total expenses for all of them. Now, you need to calculate the time involved to makes these commitments go smoother. After knowing these things, I am sure you can differentiate your time between the important and not-so-important things. Leaving aside the not-so-important things, start spending your time efficiently on starting your own business.
Make your Business Plans:
Now, it’s time to list your skills and assets for your business. For doing this important task, I would ask you to dedicate the best time of the day when you would feel energetic. Now, it’s time to be quite selfish to make your passion come true. Be in your best form and stay focused while framing your business plans. After listing out skills and assets that are required, make a note of the things that you can afford and the things you cannot.
Validate your Ideas:
I would say this is the most important part of starting any business. The major reason for a failure in businesses is that there is no enough background work. Here, background work would mean that you need to conduct the market research and find out the exact market status of your product. If the product you have chosen doesn’t have a proper market, then all the other plans and efforts you put for your business would be a waste. So, compare the product you selected with the already existing products and gather a statistical reference that your product can succeed in the market. Now, go on with the other steps of starting your business without any fear of failures!
