Starting a business from scratch is not easy and takes an enormous amount of time, energy and money. Whilst you may already have the skills needed to offer your prospective clients the services they require, unless you have run a successful business before, you may not yet have acquired the many different skills required to actually set up, run and manage your own successful business.
Making the transition from employee to business owner can be a daunting one and without the back up and support of an established and proven business model behind you, going it alone can be fraught with pitfalls and costly mistakes.
Starting up on your own can be an expensive exercise, it can take months to finalise your company identity and branding, develop your marketing materials, your web site, source the correct legal documentation and thatís all before you have any clients or start earning any money from your business.
If you add into this that you will probably still have to be working, at least part time, to keep the bills paid and food on the table while you are in Ďstart upí phase, itís no surprise that many small businesses never get off the ground, and of those that do, a huge percentage fail in their first year.
