Owning your own business is the dream of many Americans and being able to start that business converts your dream into reality. But there is a huge gap between your dream and reality that can only be filled with careful planning. As a business owner, you will need a plan to avoid pitfalls, to achieve your goals and to build a profitable business.

We have compiled a Checklist for Going into Business as a guide to help you prepare a comprehensive business plan and determine if your idea is feasible, to identify questions and problems you will face in converting your idea into reality and to prepare for starting your business.

Operating a successful small business will depend on:

  • a practical plan with a solid foundation
  • dedication and willingness to sacrifice to reach your goal
  • technical skills
  • basic knowledge of management, finance, record keeping and market analysis.

As a new business owner, you will need to master these skills and techniques if your business is to be successful.
