You’re ready to take the leap and start being in charge of your destiny.
You’ve had enough of working for other people and want to start your own business. This is great! You’re taking the first step toward being in charge of your destiny, making money doing something you love (or at least like), and becoming financially independent.
As with any big life change, there are some steps you can take now that will make this transition much easier on yourself later down the road. The following steps will help lay the foundation for success as an entrepreneur by allowing you to focus on what’s important right away: getting started without delay.

The first thing you should keep in mind is that now’s the time to take advantage of tax breaks and incentives for small businesses, such as special deductions and credits. This applies if your company falls under an S-Corp or C-Corp structure—you’ll get extra savings on top of the usual write-offs!
Next, make sure you have a great website or landing page for your customers to visit. With the state of today’s technology and Internet speed, people are used to looking up information online before making a purchase.
Don’t forget that social media is even more important now than it was five years ago! Promoting yourself on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other platforms can be an effective way to find new clients who might otherwise not know about your business. And if you’re going local with this approach—say running ads targeted at specific neighborhoods—you could see some solid results from those efforts alone.
Your skills are in demand now more than ever before.
You can start a business and you won’t even need to create an innovative product or service because your skills are in demand now more than ever before. However, as the web becomes increasingly crowded with people starting projects on their own it may be necessary to use marketing techniques that will make you stand out from the crowd. Even if there is no real demand for your product or service there is always a way to make something sound attractive.
A great example of this is the new iPhone. Apple would never have sold as many iPhones if they were called something like “we just made up a phone that you should buy.” You can start your own business selling ideas or skills other people need even without any demand for them because there are so many ways to manufacture interest in what you’re offering.
