2020 proved to us that life is too short not to do what you love. And if you are a mom, working or staying at home, you might feel like your dreams have been sidelined in recent years while you focus on other things. This is sometimes necessary, but if you are feeling a little stir crazy with your life right now, it might be time to expand your knowledge and help yourself grow as a person!
One way of doing this is to start your own business. If you have a passion you’ve always loved, but never fully pushed yourself, now is the time to start! In this blog we will discuss how to educate yourself on business if you are a beginner wanting to start a new project.
- Consult a corporate lawyer
Corporate lawyers are a fantastic resource if you want to learn what it takes to start your own company. Corporate lawyers oversee business’ first weeks and months, and can be brought in to advise on expansion, termination, locations and any other legal areas of running a business.
By consulting a corporate lawyer, you can educate yourself about how to set up a business, the financial side of things, and the hoops that must be jumped through to run a company legally and successfully.
Where can I find a corporate lawyer? For starters, some lawyers offer lectures, online tutorials or Q&As that can be highly informative! If you want an up-close-and-personal look, contact Takakjian & Sitkoff, LLP for a private, professional consultation.
- Attend a business course
One way to educate yourself on business is to pay for a course on basic business knowledge and skills. If you are a true beginner, this will be a great way to start your career in running a business. There are plenty of aspects to running a company that will challenge you – managing a budget, keeping customers happy, growing your brand, employing workers – and all of these can be learned effectively on a professional business course.
These courses can range from weekend or week-long short courses, apprenticeships, online studies, or even full-time degrees. You can find courses that suit your schedule as a mom, working around your priorities to learn and grow in your own way.
- Learn on the job
Learning about business can be achieved very effectively by working closely within one. If you are considering starting your own company, getting experience from another related business can be invaluable to your success as a business owner in the future.
Plus, working within a small business can challenge you – sometimes making people realise that running a business isn’t for them, after all. Being pushed with daily challenges can help stimulate your mind and give you the confidence and variety you have been searching for, without the hassle of actually starting one yourself!
