Starting a business is no easy task. Having the courage to jump in and staying is where most people fail in business. The 6 startup essentials for a business aren’t rocket science but they still get left out and overlooked.
One of the 5 startup essentials for your business
Know who you serve in your business. If you had a store that we call a brick and mortar business, what are you doing to carry in the store? Clothes for men and women? Just men? What size clothes? Who are you wanting to bring into your store to take care of?
A clear description of the person you want to serve is a must in your business so you know who you are talking too.

You can’t do this alone, build a team. In network marketing, for some reason, people think that when someone joins their business they are their “boss”. Which is far from the truth. You are a team, you are working on the same mission and each of your efforts helps the other one. No one is over the other in network marketing.

Use tools that actually help your business grow and stop trying to build a business on the free mentality or the dollar store efforts. Every business whether it is online or a brick and mortar business there are systems and tools to make things work for you. The last thing you want to do is attempt to do it with pen and paper alone.
Start Building a list period. If you build it the right way you will have the most dedicated follows, fan and customers who you can talk to over and over again. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter are not your lists. Those are platforms that we get to use for free and they can shut out accounts down without asking us first. A list allows you to build a relationship with people who have raised their hand to learn more value from you.
The best part the size of your list has nothing to do with your business success. A copywriter guru friend of mine has a list of 5000 and makes a million dollars a year. If that didn’t just blow your mind a little bit it should have.
There are many ways to build a list but using baited copy to get someone to give you their email list for more valuable content is the most widely used. I use Aweber and have for 7 years because they have great support and it was easy to learn with the video training they have to help you. You can start your list by clicking here

Use a system to help you learn. If you have no clue what tools you need, what you need to be working on every day or what is value verse not value. You have to learn what it takes to make a business produce money. A true business will cost you money and it will take time to grow. If you are not building your knowledge along with your list, and customer base you are going to struggle longer than you need to.
