How To Start A New Business

How to Start a New Business

Got Money, Now What?


When I worked for Kelly Services as thHead of Real Estate, we had an ISO process that each department was required to complete. I recall thinking that this was a huge waste of time. Part of the requirement was to create a process documenting every step of all the processes in my departmentThe goal was to find where things fell through the cracks and then fix them. It turned out to be a great learning experience, as I was then able to set up processes that improved our department. My department received the highest level of accomplishment in this area. As I imagined how my new business would work, the memory of this training came to mind. Thus, before anyone was hired, I put together the processes to run the business. This facilitated a much smoother start. 

Running a business is a lot of work. When just getting off the ground, the owner must wear many hats.  It was clear that in order for me to continue assisting my existing clients I couldn’t go it alone, so the next questions I asked were how many people could I hire and where would we work?
