Today is second round of the Decision Tree. Therefore, please click the above YouTube-link to view and listen to my 2nd. video – thank you.
This time I got more into detail of how each choice shall be handled best:
- list your themes
- write down who will give you the relevant information
- call and meet up with them
- add the relevant information per theme to your decision tree = as a result per choice
To not involve your thinking too much with my own actual choices (as example) let me add separately below what I did next. For covering the uncertainties I listed 3 themes as my headlines:
1. theme is: my offer, my concept which has to meet the existing demand “x” in the market
2. theme is: reaching my potential customers Q.: how many do I need to reach, how and where can I reach them best? What are my to do´s?
3. theme is: the training, half day and/or day and/or offer a speech alternativey
As for choice B, I sure will have to do both: do what I have to do for “A” and additionally apply for a regular job as an employee to cover monthly costs – to then combine both results and get close to a balance. It is a clear way or alternative to get straight to “A” but might take a bit longer.
Choice “C” would be the wrong way for me as a go-on and as risky as only going after choice “A”. Why? Because the outcome isn´t to expect to be the best for reaching my goal. I would completely miss it! Plus, going back means I would meet new structures that don´t allow people in my age to re-enter a company directly with a contract. Rules have changed! I am out.
Make sure you list your themes to each choice and list the uncertainties. Second, start looking for the sources to get answers from, call friends who already started. Google local institutions, there shall be agencies in case you look for becoming entrepreneur – as I did.
Check what you have to offer for the market. NOTE: only sales make you be a business owner, only sales pay your bills and will get the business grow. As a business owner you have to have a product(s) to sell.
Product development: make sure to list all the info you need to start gathering. Do the brainstorming upfront and use the model of the decision tree to write all down and display it for the team. You will be much better prepared for the listing of the linked processes. Production and logistics need to be set into processes. As the business plan asks for – you have to be ready to face development costs in case it includes a bigger production with employees and machines.
BE A DECISION MAKER. BECOME OUTSTANDING.
