How to Start a New Business – What You Really Need to Know


I’m confused by the question. Are you hoping to find a mentor that will come beside you and show you exactly what to do to start a new business? Maybe you’re looking for a business opportunity that comes with some clear instructions and/or a mentor to guide you along?

I have started a number of new businesses through the years, so perhaps I can share with you some insight as to how you can also start a new business yourself. Some businesses you can spend very little to get started, while others will cost tens of thousands.

  • How much money are you willing to invest? This is a fair question. If you are hoping to find a business that makes you a living, chances are you will need to invest some money. You may not want to hear that, but you know it’s the truth. Lets come back to this later and see if there are new business opportunities that require less up front investment.
  • A new business requires your time. Sure you are going to find a number of opportunities that will promise a few hours a week of your time, but if you really want to start a new business that will grow, and grow strong, you will need to invest your time to build a strong foundation. Try to get around this and your business will fail.
  • Who are your customers? Do you want to start a new business that you love, of course! But if there is a limited client base, I don’t recommend it? Or, do you want a new business that has millions of client potential? Simply asked, do you want a business that makes a little money or a lot of money?

You can tell I am guiding you down a specific road can’t you? Let me ask you this question… Do you think that every sales person selling products and onlineservices, love and believe in their product or service? They should.

Years ago I worked at a tool and die plant. I walked into the office one day and heard a hardy laugh to my left. Ben was just off the phone and couldn’t contain himself. He said, “I just got off the phone with a guy who was telling me that I really need his product. I asked him what company he worked for and he couldn’t remember.” Everyone needs to start somewhere, you can bet the fellow found the company name before his next call.

When starting a new business, you better believe in your company, and proud to put your name on it. Let that sink in. There is a lot of junk, and it doesn’t take much to spot them. Cash images in the page header, fast and beautiful cars… These businesses are working on your emotions and greed. I’m certainly not against the finer things in life, but if that is the foundation of your business, it is going to fail.

If flashy websites are what it takes to get you to sign up, then flashy websites will be what you have to use to sell to the next person. Be careful.

If you really want to know how to start a new business, you first need to have a business to start. Solets look at that.

I grew up in the construction industry. My father and brothers were all into home building, and on the side before I went full time, I designed house plans. I later also went into home building and built a number of million dollar homes on the Lake Michigan shoreline.

Along with these businesses came employees, liability insurance and huge overhead costs. There is always that occasional unhappy customer that doesn’t pay, and quit frankly, the thing you were passionate about, is now your worst nightmare. But you know what? That is part of business.

Or is it? Is there another way to start a new business without all these added expenses? Yes!

Your question was, how to start a new business. So that is what I am answering. Do you really want to sell health products or cell phone gadgets? People selling health products do not really care or care as much about or want to sell health products. Not really. They want to sell the system, that is where they make their money… The system.

The rich are not interested in buying and selling health products or cell phones. They are interested in Real Estate, stocks, bonds and other money leveraging commodities. Systems.

Internet marketing is where new business owners should begin their search. These systems typically offer residual income and other profit making avenues, and without all the overhead.
