There’s so much to consider when starting your own business that it can be easy to feel overwhelmed.  Using a checklist like this post from the Small Business Administration can help you stay on track and make sure you’ve got the recipe for success.  #10 on that list may be on the bottom – but Planning Your Business Funding Strategy may be the most important step you can take in ensuring your business’ success.  On our resource page, we have an excel template to assist in figuring out your cash flow, a business plan outline, and our own checklist of what every small business needs to do when they get started.  If you’re really getting serious about your business idea, then come to one of our Start Smart workshops.  We’ll then be able to meet with you one-on-one to iron-out all the details and get you rolling in the right direction.
