Have you got what it takes?

Have you got what it takes to run your own successful business? It’s not just about technical know-how. You also need unwavering determination, excellent communication skills, resilience, and the ability to think a few steps ahead of everyone else. Going it alone can be exciting and rewarding, but there’s also lots to consider.

  • What’s your competition like?
  • What do you need to get in place first?
  • Do you have a contingency plan?
