Starting a business

Why do new businesses fail?

Believe it or not, it's usually not because of their product!

The Business Readiness Assessment

Thinking of going into business but realising there's a lot you don't know? Are you worried that you don't even know how much you don't know? Then you need our Business Readiness Assessment.

What is it?

You will work through a series of questions which will help you understand whether you are ready to start your business yet, or whether there is more research that you need to do, or extra help that you need, or extra money that you need to save or borrow.

What areas are covered?

You will work through a range of areas including:

  • Motivation for starting up
  • Prior experience
  • Things that you like to do and are good at
  • Things that you do not like to do - but need to be done anyway
  • How much money the business idea will need to get started
  • How much money will be needed to stay afloat before the sales kick in

What will I get?

  • A hard copy of the personalised report which captures and summarises the key areas, and gives suggestions for things that you should consider as your next steps.
  • An initial budget worked out - if you find numbers hard to get your head around, this will be very helpful for you.

The Start-up Business Plan

Need to attract potential partners, employees, bankers and investors?

Then you need a business plan.

At Success Enterprises Consulting, we'll help you develop a document that captures the key themes for the business in a way that is readily understood.

What is it?

The Start-Up Business Plan is aimed at putting more meat onto the initial bones of your business idea.

The process itself is just as important as the final document - for in that process you are able to question and challenge your assumptions. We have a structured process - called the SOWOTTM Model - which we use to help you to think through the key things that you will need in order to work your business properly.

You will also need a cash flow forecast. This is where your assumptions are converted into numbers and the harsh reality of how much money you need to get started and keep going becomes very apparent.

What areas are covered?

You will work through a range of areas including

  • Market
  • Customers
  • Your offering and why you are special (if at all)
  • Planned volumes
  • Planned prices and variable costs
  • Planned fixed costs
  • Risks
  • Issues evident
  • Investment needed

What will I get?

After going through the process, you will receive a hard copy of the business plan which we will help you to prepare.

This will be:

  • a professional document that you can share with friends, family, bankers and investors to help you explain your business
  • a summary of the key areas, captured in a logical and easy to follow manner

The text will be supported by a simple to use cash flow model, which will clearly show how many jobs or units you need to sell to break even and how many more you need in order to make the income that you plan for. This is very useful to help you to set company and personal objectives.
