Starting a business can be challenging, whether you are new to the area or a lifelong resident.  Although hard work and determination are important, they are not enough to ensure the success of your business.  Before you invest time and money into your dream, answer the questions below.  Your answers can help you determine if your ideas are realistic.

  • What does it mean to run my own business?
  • What product/service will my business sell?
  • Who will be my customer base?
  • Where will my customer base be located?
  • How do I attract my customers?
  • What means will I use to distribute products/services to my customer base?
  • What will it cost me to provide products/services?
  • Where is the location of my business?
  • Who is my competition and how much of the market do they control?
  • What separates my business from my competitors?
  • How much startup capital will it take to open my business?
  • How much operating expenses will I need for the first six months?
  • Do I have the funding that I need to open the business?  If not, where will I obtain financing?
  • Do I have an exit plan in place?

Tackling important issues before you begin can guide you in making informed decisions about your business, and give you a realistic view of your potential for success.  When you succeed, Avon succeeds!
