Bringing your business concepts to life

Georgia entrepreneurs all have one end goal in mind: to start up their own business, and to see it boom into great success. But sometimes, getting a foot through the door can be a bit difficult, especially when there are so many hoops to jump through just to get a business off the ground.

The U.S. Small Business Administration has a useful checklist of the ten steps that anyone looking to start a business needs to take. Most of its primary tips consist of building a strong foundation before setting off on any business venture. This includes:

  •          Drafting a business plan that will help you determine the course your business will run
  •          Figure out the legal aspects and structure of the business
  •          Get proper training and local assistance when necessary

It also suggests that potential business owners have a thorough understanding of what their responsibilities will be as employers before digging deeply into these options.

The Georgia Department of Economics determines that after the outlines are laid down, then it’s time to start laying the groundwork for legal operations. This includes getting all of the necessary licenses and business permits, which differ from state to state. The requirements can also change based on what type of business is being done. For example, places that serve food will have different requirements than clothing stores, and shops that sell liquor will need their own types of licenses.

Of course, this is just the starting point on the road to getting your business up and running. Though there are many involved steps, knowing the right place to start can help immensely.
