|Are these times of crisis good for beginning a business?
It can only get better. I think having a business built and functioning during a recession means that you are ready to take advantage of the upturn as soon as it arrives
There's never a good time to open a business. If you wait for that time to come you'll never own your own.
Times like these can be extremely tough for many businesses or industries - but there are a number which do in fact thrive in such circumstances. I'm fortunate to be in one of these, and my business and the industries in which it operates tend to do just as well if not better in times of economic crisis as they do in times of general prosperity. One of the key reasons is that a major element of my business is helping people to generate additional income for themselves, which of course is something that many people are actively seeking in times such as these.
Anyone whose business survives starting in a time of crisis answers yes to this question. I think a crisis climate focuses the attention. It's not better than launching a time of plenty but if you do survive and thrive then you're stronger for it.
good for thinking of your own role in live. Maybe this can mean that you start a new business.
Yes! You learn what to do with limited resources.
There are ebbs and flows in every type of business. Sometimes crisis is just what activates more business and other times it suffers.
The most important thing is if your target market value what you are offering and have the ability to pay for your product or service. Often providing payment plans will ease the decision to purchase.
Time is not the factor if you know the Art of doing business.
There is no ideal time to start a business. It is more about being ready mentally than what is going on in the economy. That and choosing a business plan that works regardless of the financial state of the country at the time.
Crisis is a good prompt for anything. Few breakthroughs occur without a preliminary breakdown.
If you can start and maintain it in the tough times, you will explode in the good
Definitely. As an entrepreneur you look at adversity and see opportunities. If you wait until you think the timing is right to start a business then you will probably never start it.
DEFINITELY! Crisis means opportunities... means adaptation to a different context and whoever is able to think different and create their own path is the one who is going to succeed.
Absolutely! If you can run a profitable business now then when the economy picks up it will be a breeze! There are more small businesses than ever and it is they who will create jobs and help the country survive. There are also a lot more working mums now who were struggling to pay for childcare but have found self employment takes away that problem.
An important factor is always the idea and how it's executed no matter the economic climate.
Anytime is a good time if you can find a target market who can pay for the goods or services.
Only if it fills a need.
