If you are just thinking of getting your new business started there are numerous places to get help and advice. In the UK organisations like enterprise agencies and chambers of commerce are a good starting point. In US sites like SBA and Score provide a similar foundation. If your business is already up and running but you’re looking for further guidance these sites can also help. As can looking at business forums, there are plenty of good quality ones providing different views by particular industry or business type. The online business press can keep you updated and put a fresh perspective on your business, sites like the New York Times while in the UK the telegraph or guardian provide a similar perspective on small business.
But don’t spend too much of your time planning. While being important, one of the best lessons from successful entrepreneurs is to follow Nike’s advice and “just do it”. With sites like Bizinate creating your own business can now happen in online time and not years of old-fashioned business planning time.
