    1) Do what you love.
    You're going to devote a lot of time and energy to starting a business and building it into a successful enterprise, so it's really important that you truly deeply enjoy what you do, whether it be running fishing charters, creating pottery or providing financial advice.
    2) Start your business while you're still employed.
    How long can most people live without money? Not long. And it may be a long time before your new business actually makes any profits. Being employed while you're starting a business means money in your pocket while you're going through the starting a business process.
    3) Get clients or customers first.
    Don't wait until you've offically started your business to line these up, because your business can't survive without them. Do the networking. Make the contacts. Sell or even give away your products or services. You can't start marketing too soon
    4)Have a Plan & Work That Plan

          Hi Bytrade,

          Your tips for starting a business were really spot on! To sum up, we should do what we love, remain in a job till we are ready, plan and execute, get those customers and network like mad.

          I would like to add another; enthusiasm and passion are two qualities that are indispensable for those who want to start an enterprise. It is not everyone who can become a businessperson and neither can every businessperson be successful.

          On www.smallbusinessdog.com you will find many more tips and tricks of the trade...

          Best wishes,
          smallbusinessdog

              Re: Top Business Start Up Tips For Ultimate Success

              Whether you're starting a business on the side while still employed elsewhere, a student or homemaker looking for extra income, or unemployed and trying to figure out what to do, there are plenty of opportunities for you to start up a side business inexpensively. It's unlikely any of these will make you a living in the first few months, but they all have the potential to grow into full-time businesses. We'll take a look at 10 such opportunities and, most importantly, tell you what to do with the $20!

              1. Webpreneur

              It's what everyone who's ever surfed the Web dreams of-just stick a web site up there and watch the cash roll in! Well, that just doesn't happen overnight, but the fact of the matter is it's really not very hard to do. To do it right, start by picking a subject matter you know a lot about. Then get a domain and create a web site. It doesn't even matter what technology you use-just be totally anal-retentive about it looking good and provide plenty of original content. Now find some appropriate affiliate programs-that's where your revenues are going to come from. Next, learn everything you can about search engine marketing and promote the heck out of your site. Last of all, set aside time every week to put new content on the site, delete dead links, and other maintenance. Now do this three or four times, and you've chosen your topics well, you might actually have some decent income from it.

              Spend the $20 on: $8 or less for a domain (see our Online Business Guide's list of cheap domain name registrars) and $12 for a year of hosting (search for "$1 hosting").

              2. Consultant

              Getting into consulting is relatively simple. All you have to do is know how to do something better than most people do, and be able to either teach people how to do it or be willing to do it for them. Networking is the key to success in this business, so start by making a list of everyone you know and giving them all a call.

              Spend the $20 on: $14 on a box of clean-edge laser or inkjet business cards and $6 buying your first prospect a cup of coffee one morning.

              3. Housesitter / Petsitter

              Particularly since 9/11, people feel an increased need for security, and housesitting gives them some reassurance while they're out of town. This one's great because it basically requires no particular skills, just trustworthiness and reliability. Be sure to have personal references available, and you'll also need reliable transportation. If you're an animal lover, petsitting is an easy add-on.

              Spend the $20 on: $2 on flyers to put up on bulletin boards, and the rest on classified ads in your local neighborhood paper (not a big city-wide one).

              4. Professional Organizer


              People these days are simply overwhelmed by their "stuff". While there is an ever-growing trend of people wanting to simplify their lives, most of us haven't done it yet. It's not that people really have no clue how to get organized, it just keeps moving to the bottom of the stack, both figuratively and literally. There's a prime opportunity for people to come in at a reasonable rate and get houses organized. And while there is a National Association of Professional Organizers that you can join when you're ready, mostly it takes common sense, organizational skills, and a familiarity with what can be had at your local office supply and The Container Store.

                  Re: Top Business Start Up Tips For Ultimate Success

                  You can get all the business tips and start a business.. but you need to also be prepared for the mistakes.

                  Startup Mistake # 1: First, being a "carpenter" is too general. There are a million carpenters in the world, but the only successful ones have something to concentrate on. Wood carving, house renovation, specialized pieces. Like the old saying goes, "Jack of all trades, master of none."
                  Startup Mistake # 2: If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. An idea is not a business plan, or a marketing plan, or even just a goal. It is simply an idea. Although the planning process may seem long and tedious now, it will benefit you more than you could imagine in the future. For example, when you are seeking funding, when you are joining an association of professionals, when your goals change, when your business changes, or if you take on a partner or investor. Your plan should guide you, but not constrain you. If something in your plan doesn't fit just right, change it. Your business plan will never have a final draft.
                  Startup Mistake # 3: Brochures and business cards are garbage to startup businesses! You will spend far more producing them than they will produce for you. Ignoring the high cost of printing these materials, and the costs associated in designing them if you aren't proficient yourself, most startup businesses change too quickly for these materials to be effective for more than a short period, sometimes as little as days.
                  If it costs $1000 to print these the first time, and $1000 to design them the first time, imagine how much you will pay if your brochures beat statistics and last two months. If alterations to design cost $500, it costs $1500 every time your business changes. If your business changes every two months, you can expect to spend at least $9000 that year on brochures and business cards. Yes, that is nine thousand dollars in lost revenue, over something that is less effective than graffiti. Don't waste your time, or your money, on brochures and business cards until you can keep your typical sales presentation the same for at least six months. Otherwise, for business startups, these things aren't worth the trouble.
                  Startup Mistake # 4: Okay, the Yellow Pages. Let's take a look in the Yellow Pages and see how many other trillions of carpenters there are. Which ones stand out? Definitely not the tiny ad in the corner. Probably not the one-liner. And as a business startup, that is all you would be able to afford. For the one or two clients per year this would bring you, it is better to wait until your marketing budget can afford to buy large, extravagant and eye-catching ads.
                  Startup Mistake # 5: Six hundred dollars for a website and domain name? A website and domain name before a marketing plan? This scenario is already causing headaches for those of you "in the know". Best idea for a business startup, design your own website for free if you can. Second best idea for a business startup, get a friend or relative to design it for free. Third best, pay a minimal fee for the complicated stuff and the rest can be done by yourself and a relative.
                  Only if no one in the world can help you, do you want to hire a professional to do the whole thing for you. And when you do, try and get it on 30 or 60 days post. That way, the new website will be generating money for you before you pay. If you do pay upfront, and can't get around it, ask if they do free updates. You are guaranteed to change a thing or two, probably at least once a week as you test out your new site. If you pay $600, it had better be a good website - because your entire marketing budget just paid for it.
                  Starting a business is hard enough without making it even harder on yourself by making these common business startup mistakes. (See page 1 of this article for Startup Mistakes 1 through 5.)
                  Startup Mistake # 6: Wow! A carpenter who went to John B. Doe Carpentry Academy! Is that what your customers say? Most likely, they won't even think that. Most customers think, "Wow! Look at his work. It is just what I need." And that is what you want your customers to think. Don't promote yourself; promote your solutions. Everyone who comes to your website has a problem they need solved. If you figure out that problem, and can tell them how to solve it using your website, you have just hit a marketing gold-mine.
                  Startup Mistake # 7: What is a carpenter doing at a grocery store? And why is he handing out fliers anyway? If you do hand out fliers, do it where it counts. A carpenter should hand out fliers at a lumber yard or furniture store. Even a department store that sells nails would be a better location for a carpenter when handing out fliers. Think about it.
                  Startup Mistake # 8: You stopped marketing. This is probably the biggest mistake for a business startup. Even if you do exactly the opposite of everything you have read so far, if you keep doing it you are bound to get at least minimal results. If you stop when you run out of new ideas, you probably won't get much.
                  The key to marketing is repetition. Make sure people think of your name when they have a problem. If they have only seen your name once, but your competitor just sent them a third flier, your competitor will get their business. We've all heard that it takes more than once for a customer to buy, and it has never been more true. With the information available to your customers today, you want your name to be in front of them as much as possible.
                  Startup Mistake # 9: When nothing happened, you didn't try again. Nothing says failure like someone who quits. Motivate yourself! Get up in the morning and say "I'm going to get hits to my website." Or "I'm going to get a client this week!" If you build it, but nobody knows its there, nobody is going to come. When you're starting a business, you have to try, make mistakes, learn, and try again. If you try, make a mistake, and give up, you will never be the success you know you can be.
                  Startup Mistake # 10: You assumed that what everyone else does will work for you. Wrong! What everyone else does took them a long time to figure out, and they have been tweaking it all that time to make it work right for them. If you copy part, but not all, of what they do, you will never get the same results. People strive for individuality, and businesses should too. If you copy your competitor in every aspect, your prospects might as well flip a coin. Do you want 50 percent of the business you could be getting? No, you want it all!
                  The bottom line with a business startup is to stay motivated. Starting a business is one of the hardest things anyone can ever do because of the uncertainty, the lack of a support structure, the complete and total disregard of your typical safety zone. It is all part of starting a business. But the rewards are far greater than the sacrifices. And in the end, when you are financially secure, and independent from the corporate world, it will be more gratifying than you could have ever dreamed.
