“Look Before You Leap”
episode #546 – Dec. 24, 2020
GUEST: Krishna Mohan | Genius Visionary Inc.
Ask the right questions to determine the viability of your business proposition.
This week we explore…
Questions to ask before you start your business.
These days, lots of people are thinking about starting their own businesses, but they are not quite sure where to start. Too often they focus all their energy on the product, service, or technology assuming the market will love it.
Krishna suggests they need to evaluate the market potential by asking questions about their ideal client, the potential size of the market, who their competitors are, and how it will be delivered to the marketplace.
Next look at the numbers. What are the projected costs? Will the price be enough to generate a profit? And finally, why they want to start a business? Do they want to make a million dollars in the next 12 months, build this company to sell to a private equity company, use this as one step toward retirement?
Different objectives will lead to different action plans. Once there is a clear objective, then it is easier to determine a dollar value to reach the destination and develop a plan to get there.
