How to Start a Business >>

6.1   Now what?

This Action Guide is just the tip of the iceberg of your learning and development to get your product, service or company off the ground.

If your research has concluded that your product or service simply does not have customer demand, fulfillment capabilities and profit potential, DO NOT GIVE UP! The Business Ideas Action Guide will help you find a business ownership opportunity, such as owning a franchise. It will help you uncover your strengths, passions and business interests.

However, if your current concept may have the ability to be modified in one or more ways to demonstrate customer demand, fulfillment and profit capabilities, then we recommend you read the Action Guide – How to Write a Business Plan.  In this guide, you will learn more about the most critical elements for your business planning.

All USCFE Action Guides provide the foundation to get you started in your journey as an entrepreneur for each targeted topic that is offered.

The U.S. Center for Entrepreneurship strives to provide action-oriented Action Guides that enable each student to grow in their business while working through the guides.

The Center encourages and requests feedback and suggestions from you to better serve your future needs. Please leave a comment below.

6.2   Funding the development of your business.
