If you thinking about opening a business, then these two key recommendations for starting a business is what you need and a great place to start. Joshua Nicholls is an outstanding business owner who has seen incredible success and he shares his recommendations in this portion of an interview conducted by Dale Beaumont.
Joshua Nicholls is the owner of Platinum Electrical Contractors, which in just four years has experienced a growth of 790%. From it’s humble beginnings, Platinum Electrical has now grown to have over 30 employees and has been a finalist and won many small business awards.
What recommendations would you make to someone else who wants to get started in a business of his or her own?
I have two recommendations.
- First, don’t be a hero and think that you don’t need any help. If you are starting a business for the first time, then you obviously have no experience running a business – so seek wise counsel and ask for help. Your business will grow much quicker if you work with a business coach or mentor and hold yourself accountable to them.
- Second, understand that not everyone is suited to business. Are you? Identify your strengths and weaknesses and really contemplate whether you were created to be in business. Being great at what you do doesn’t mean you will be great at running a business. I was extremely fortunate to find out that I was good at business. However, like many small business owners, I could have found out the hard way that business wasn’t for me. Starting a business can impose huge financial pressure, so consider whether joining a franchise or starting from scratch is best for you.
