When it comes to starting your own business, what is truly holding you back? For some, it's the fear of failure, while for others it's the lack of financial support. The good news is that whatever you "think" is limiting your business from getting off the ground can typically be solved by some creative and critical thinking.
Some businesses can be started with very little financing, while others may require a lot. It's also true that starting a business on a low budget can be difficult, but beneficial in the long run. One issue could be that with low budget, you are restricted on what equipment and supplies you can buy upfront On the other hand, should the business fail, you won't lose so much.
Talking about business failure when your planning a business cannot be ignored because it is a fact of life that some new businesses fail. Just because other businesses are failing doesn't mean that yours will, it just means that you have to think outside the box on ways that you can set your business up for success from the very beginning. Starting a new business with little capital may be more desirable than borrowing finance right up to the limit, should it be available.
As a business owner, you NEVER want to put yourself in a hole where you can't dig yourself back out.
