When to start a new business, is often the question asked when you are looking to invest your money into a business opportunity or franchise. Today’s market seems dubious at best. What should you do? How do you know if it is a good time to start a new business? These are some of the questions that come up as a new franchisee or business opportunity seeker has the inclination to start a new business. The Business search usually begins with the internet. The internet shows you that there are over 3500 different business available, with dozens of new businesses showing up monthly. You might find a site such as bizbuysell or franchise gator. These sites attract thousands of viewers monthly and offer you advertisements and a place to fill out your information. Once you do this you are forwarded information on the various business interests you may have.
When you see a business or franchise that you like, the fear creeps in. Your mind starts to go into survivor mode and the questions begin. Can I do it? Will people come to my business? Am I going to loose everything? Over and over these negative thoughts are played out and eventually you stop your search and loose your dream. This, in my opinion is a tragedy! No matter what time of year, what the economy, what is in the news, Today as well as any day, is a Great day to find a new business. I am not suggesting that you jump into the first one you see; of course you should do your due diligence. I am however saying that there are reasons in any economy that offer hindrances to your success. When looking for a new business, you will need to put on your armor, to withstand the negative energy that you receive from the media, magazines, and well meaning friends and family.
Today, as I stated before, Hundreds of New businesses will begin this month. New Franchises and Business will begin operations this week. Times have changed. Financing is harder to get, and people are spending less money. You still can find a business that caters to the changes! If we don’t change with the times, we will fail, and when we find that Right Niche, we SUCCEED.
