You even knocked and got no response! That’s what happens when people bring their iPhones into the bathroom with them. Thanks again, technology.

1. No business plan survives first customer contact.
2. It’s the business model, stupid.
3. Take time to think through the alternative possibilities.

You are deciding on taking the plunge or maybe you are getting close to creating a new company or business. One of the first considerations before taking the final steps is YOU:
- Are you a person that can find the positives in all situations and try to move forward?
- Can you keep your enthusiasm and stick to a business when the going gets difficult?
- Can you organize tasks and ensure proper and timely work flow?
- Can you attract and motivate staff to join in and work hard?
- Can you manage finances to ensure you get the most efficient use of your funds?
