New York Times Article: 10 Things to Be Clear About Before You Start a Company

This is the million dollar question. Here is an excellent article from the NY Times, “10 Things to Be Clear About Before you Start a Company,” that should make anyone stop and think before starting their own business.

Owning your own business is not for the fainthearted. It can be done with a well engineered business plan. As a successful entrepreneur, I would add a final point to this list: “Is your business idea simple and easy to achieve? It is always better to start a business with a single concept and a great deal of perseverance.

”Here is an excerpt of the article:

1. Is this your first venture?
2. Are you really an entrepreneur?
3. Does your venture involve something you understand really well?
4. Can your mother understand the value proposition?
5. Can you see the right wave?
6. What does your startup want to be when it grows up?
7. Starting a company is hard and uncertain.
8. Get a partner or fly solo?
9. Would you refuse a well-paying job to do this?
10. Can you raise appropriate financing?”
