How can you run your own business, when you have no experience or qualifications? Is that even possible?
That’s a question I hear quite a lot. You may have a neighbor, a friend, a member of your family who has recently told you they’re running their own business, often from home. Sometimes the first question is always going to be how on earth is that possible?
After all, they don’t have any qualifications, they don’t have any experience running a business and perhaps more importantly, where do they find the time? After all, they have busy lives too, dealing with their kids and other commitments.
No matter who you’re referring too, we can probably explain how they do it with no knowledge, no experience, and seemingly no time. By tackling these issues, it might just encourage you to try this endeavor yourself.
Under Qualified To Run Your Own Business?
Probably not because for some business ideas there are no qualifications necessary. Let’s explore a simple possibility for a business that you can run yourself online…. running a shop on eBay.
It may not seem like it, but if you choose to sell products on eBay as a registered shop owner, you are running your own company. You can sell whatever you want online and there’s really no need to look into qualifications for this type of practice.
Indeed, you can learn everything you need to know about this type of business online. Or, you can simply learn as you go. If you’re running a business, you will really only need to show you have the right qualifications if you are seeking out funding. Most people won’t and will instead run the company out of their own pocket. This a lot of times cost a lot less than you’d imagine.
Yes running a business can take up a lot of time, but it doesn’t have to be that way. There are solutions that you can use that will make things a lot easier.
For instance, you can outsource IT using Computer and Network Consulting for Businesses for your business instead of handling it yourself. This will help you deal with tech issues without you needing to handle them directly yourself. Instead, you’ll have experts on the case to work on it for you.
That’s not the only area of your business that you can outsource either. You may also consider outsourcing any area of your business that you do not want or do not feel equipped to handle yourself such as accounting.
As already mentioned, most home run businesses require very little experience than the type you can get by simply giving it a go and getting your hands dirty. You are bound to make a few mistakes in the first couple of months and the first year on the market. However, once these are ironed out most business owners have no trouble getting into a smooth pattern of regular profits.
So, as you can see it’s not that difficult to see how someone you know could set up their own business. In fact, it’s so easy that you might want to give it a shot yourself. People usually start off with a blog or eCommerce shop and build from there.
