Tempted to chuck it all and start over fresh? New business, new industry, new possibilities!
Don’t! Building on what and who you know in your current industry is the single strongest business start-up success factor. And that’s not me talking: that’s the Wharton School of Business, which analyzed small business success rates, drawn from data collected by the Kauffman Foundation.
You can get the best of both worlds by detecting a sweet spot that represents a fresh take and a new horizon of options, while bridging from your current staff position.
I’ll spell it out, step by step, on Oct. 3 at the Women’s Business Development Center, 8 N. Michigan Ave., Chicago. In just one morning, you’ll build a plan that plots your steps from where you are now to where you want to be — making the most of your proven strengths, contacts, and industry knowledge. Sign up soon — I know this is filling up because I spoke with several women who are coming, at last week’s Entrepreneurial Women Conference. The $25 fee is a small price to pay for detecting your surest chance of entreprenerial success!
