1. Ensure that you do your research, your research should cover if there is a market for your product, service and type of business, who your potential customers/target audience/market is, where they are and how they will buy.

2. You must ideally create a business plan, especially if you are aiming to raise finance for your new venture. The business plan will determine if your business is viable and if it has the potential to be viable in the near future.

AND FINALLY the biggest tip I can give you is that when you are starting your own business or company please surround yourself by family, friends, optimists and loved ones as there will be many challenges and hurdles in the near and distant future and honestly who wants to face these on their own.

Good luck with whatever you choose or decide to do I wish you every success.
