    Start a business of your own with an idea, and a bit of

    imagination. Starting a business can be a difficult decision

    that you are not sure if you have what it really takes to be

    an entrepreneur. Don't worry; everyone starting out, in

    building any type of business has those same thoughts to

    some degree.

    How are you going to become self-employed and start a

    business of your own?

    First, you should think about how you can start a

    business. You can start a business from scratch, and this

    means without buying any type that is already

    established. This is one of the riskiest paths of self-

    employment but one that many have done successfully in

    the past. Every day new restaurants, retail outlets, stores,

    service centers and the like are being established, fresh

    and new to the market. This is your clean slate, where

    you start your own reputation; your own name in the

    industry, and you put forth your own thoughts and ideas

    into the business world.

    The advantage to your own start up business is you will

    learn from your mistakes, making changes on the way. If

    you were to hire the wrong type of employees, or if you

    have the wrong location, you can change these things.

    You make the decisions; no set patterns or ideas you must

    follow to get additional sales for your business.

    Another way you can start a business is to purchase an

    existing business. You can purchase an existing business

    and start in the industry with a reputation and customer

    base already established. You will thrive in business, as

    you will be following an established pattern of business,

    and ideas, selling products and services already known in

    the marketplace.

    The advantages to purchasing an established business are

    that you will gain the reputation of the business you take

    over. You will have a client base that will know and

    recognize the product, service, and the business name.

    The existing location is an added bonus, saving you time,

    money and errors as you learn while starting out in any

    business.

    You have yet another choice in starting a business, and

    that choice involves purchasing a franchise. Your choices

    are vast in starting a business. If you want to start a

    business where the volume of people is high, purchasing a

    franchise could just fit your expectations perfectly. You

    will have a well-known business name; a reputation that

    will draw customers, and a business plan to follow that will

    enable you to be successful while still being your own

    boss.

    The advantages of purchasing a franchise involve that you

    will have a set business idea to follow, along with a name

    that will bring customers, sales along with a well-known

    business name. You gain access to the parent company

    marketing and advertising as well as being able to fall

    back on the skills that others in the franchise have already

    obtained so you can draw upon this expertise to

    strengthen your own business.
