Entrepreneurship Basics: Miniseries Recap

Many successful entrepreneurs know running your own business is an ongoing learning experience, while others have had to learn the hard way. If you have been inspired to become an entrepreneur, remember you and your business need to learn to walk before you can run.

To assist you in learning more about entrepreneurship and the basics of starting a business, we created a four-part miniseries covering a variety of different topics to help assist you in your search knowledge about becoming an entrepreneur and starting your own business.

Check out the links below to begin building your knowledge of the entrepreneurial basics as you begin following your path toward becoming an entrepreneur and your own boss.

Four Entrepreneurship Basics

Step One: Choosing Your Business Structure

In this first step you must choose your business structure from the many types of corporate entities. You’ll learn the different types of business structures, and some of the advantages and drawbacks of each one.

Step Two: Naming Your Business

In this step you’ll learn about how to get started in naming your business, as well as some key points to consider and pitfalls to avoid.

Step Three: Writing Your Business Plan

In this step you’ll learn how to perform a market analysis, create an executive summary, and outline your management structure to help you begin writing your business plan for a new business venture.

Step Four: Developing a Marketing Plan

In this last step, you’ll learn how to develop a marketing plan. By first conducting your research you will be able to outline the specific marketing tactics that you believe will help drive your business toward becoming a success.

Our miniseries on these entrepreneurship basics will help you begin to form a foundation of knowledge that you will be able to utilize along your path toward becoming an entrepreneur. Just remember, there is much more to learn about becoming a successful entrepreneur than in a four-part series. Being your own boss will require you to constantly learn new things throughout the life of your business.
