Steps to starting a small business

There are many items to consider when starting a business and following them in a sensible order will keep you from getting overwhelmed.  Start at the foundation, i.e. research and resources. When ready, move onto the next step of designing a business plan based on your mission statement/vision, the products or services you are offering, and the structure of your team to support this tier.  Then design an initial marketing plan which defines your perfect demographic you are aiming for and the avenues you will take to reach them.  Of course, to accomplish a well thought out marketing strategy, you must come up with your brand….the image the public will recognize when they become familiar with your business.  Decide what that looks like and the optimal positioning it will need, as well as how to launch and track it.  All of these items are broken down in detail in the ebook (link).
