Most of our Suite Salon professionals tell us they dreamed of owning their own businesses for a long time before they took action. So, how do you know when it’s the right time to make the leap? Here are 5 signs that you’re ready to be your own boss:
You can’t stop thinking about it.
It’s one thing to feel like you want to open your own business when you’re frustrated or bored at work. It’s another thing when the dreaming keeps you up at night figuring out how to make it happen.
You’ve made a plan.
Have you created a business plan, even if it’s informal? A detailed plan with numbers and savings and the services you’d offer? If you’ve put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard), then you’re probably ready.
You know your market.
Sure there’s definitely fear mixed in there too, but does the thought of signing that lease and decorating your suite fill you with excitement? That’s a sign.
You’re ready to learn (and work) a lot.
There are new challenges to owning your own business, from payment processing to taxes, marketing and more. A Suite Salon is here to help you with operations, but there is still a lot of work to do to have a successful business.
