What you need to know to start your home business?
A a few years ago, I was meeting an investor who was recommended to me by a family friend. My business was just starting to take off and I needed to raise more capital.
On entering one of the most elegant hotels in the town, I met the investor in the coffee shop. Soon enough, I was overwhelmed by the business knowledge of the investor. He also had an in-depth knowledge of my industry.
Before I could start pitching my business, he asked me some of the questions about the numbers. That is when I realized how unprepared I was. I was again caught off guard when he asked me for my business plan.
Needless to say, I was not able to raise the funds. But I learned one important lesson. It was that I must have a clear vision and a business plan ready for my business. Because you never know when the opportunity would knock on your door.
