However, there is a gap between dreams and reality. Your dreams can only be achieved with careful planning. As an entrepreneur, you will need a plan to avoid pitfalls, to achieve your goals and to build a profitable business. Are you ready? Is Entrepreneurship For You? CHECKLIST FOR STARTING A BUSINESS : CHECKLIST FOR STARTING A BUSINESS Owning a business is the dream of many Americans ... starting that business converts your dreams into reality. However, there is a gap between dreams and reality. Your dreams can only be achieved with careful planning. As an entrepreneur, you will need a plan to avoid pitfalls, to achieve your goals and to build a profitable business. This checklist is designed to help you get started. It has seven key components: Identify Your Reasons; Self Analysis; Personal Skills and Experience; Finding a Niche; Market Analysis; Planning Your Startup; and, Finances. STARTUP CHECKLIST Forms of Business Ownership : Forms of Business Ownership One of the first decisions that you will have to make as a business owner is how the company should be structured. This decision will have long-term implications, so consult with an accountant and attorney to help you select the form of ownership that is right for you. In making a choice, you will want to take into account the following: Your vision regarding the size and nature of your business. The level of control you wish to have. The level of "structure" you are willing to deal with. The business's vulnerability to lawsuits. Tax implications of the different ownership structures. Expected profit (or loss) of the business. Whether or not you need to re-invest earnings into the business. Your need for access to cash out of the business for yourself. The vast majority of small businesses start out as sole proprietorships. These firms are owned by one person, usually the individual who has day-to-day responsibility for running the business. Sole proprietors own all the assets of the business and the profits generated by it. They also assume complete responsibility for any of its liabilities or debts. In the eyes of the law and the public, you are one in the same with the business. Internet Marketing : Internet Marketing Technology has changed so rapidly over the past 15 years that the things you can do may present overwhelming choices to the small business owner. The Technology Tower is devoted to making some of those choices a little easier and less threatening. Wondering if your business needs an Internet presence, or trying to choose an Internet service provider? Has your business reached the point where you need new equipment or are you ready to upgrade systems?

Incorporation Guide Business Course : Business Course Since going into business is a step-by-step process, it is highly recommend that you start with Session One and proceed through all 12 sessions.

The basic components include a current and pro forma balance sheet, an income statement, and a cash flow analysis. It helps you allocate resources properly, handle unforeseen complications, and make good business decisions. Because it provides specific and organized information about your company and how you will repay borrowed money, a good business plan is a crucial part of any loan application. Additionally, it informs sales personnel, suppliers, and others about your operations and goals.

Within this lesson you will Learn about your new computer Basic Computer Skills : Basic Computer Skills There are many good places to buy computer parts. You can go to a computer retail store in your area. Although they often provide good warranties, the trade off may be that you will pay a little more than you would in other places. Sometimes, a lot more. Also, due to the sheer volume of people they see every day, some of the "support specialists" don't always listen to your concerns and start jumping to conclusions on what you need or what the problem is. Some of them take pride that they can give you a technical answer in two seconds and make themselves look smart, even though what they just said is probably wrong. If you walk in and say your computer keeps crashing and he insists you need a new motherboard and CPU to fix it, start running.
