Are you an experienced consultant who has dabbled with the idea of starting your own business but wasn’t sure what you needed to do to get started? Do you want to make the leap into owning your own business but have concerns on obtaining the funding necessary to start your business? Thanks to the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010, the Small Business Administration has increased the amount of money small business owners can borrow. The act permanently increased microloan limits from $35,000 to $50,000 and expanded the number of small businesses eligible for loans from the SBA. With these expanding funding standards, now may be the perfect time to open your consulting business, but what else will you need to do prior to getting started?
With How to Open and Operate a Financially Successful Consulting Business, you will learn how to analyze whether you are ready to take the first steps to get your new business up and running. Author Kristie Lorette will help you first determine if there is a need in the consulting industry you can fill and will help you choose the perfect time to begin your transition into entrepreneurship. Once you’ve made the decision to begin this new business venture, Lorette walks you through each step you will need to kick start your business, including finding office space — either in your home or commercial property — analyzing your competition, determining the rates you will charge, choosing a legal form of business, obtaining financing, writing a business plan, managing your time, and finding clients. There is even a sample business plan you can use as a model for the business plan you’ll need to start your consulting operation.
After reading about everything you need to start your new consulting business, you can reference the companion CD-ROM for dozens of forms you’ll use in your business’s everyday operations. The CD-ROM features IRS forms, an employee handbook, ways to track your income and expenses, and a sample consulting agreement. By consulting How to Open and Operate a Financially Successful Consulting Business, your transition into entrepreneurship will go smoothly.
