Fast 5 Episode 2

You're a police officer, medic, or firefighter. In between calls to service you ponder what else you could be doing. Maybe you have a love for cars? Maybe you like to cook? Then BAM like a freight train it hits you......

Your business idea!

You have the idea, now what?!

In our Fast 5 Episodes we will discuss the 20 Questions that Dan Fleyshman and Brandon Hampton recommend asking yourself before you go into business, from their book 'How to Set Up Your Business for Under $1000'

  1. What differentiates my business idea and the products or services I will provide from others in the market?
  2. Where is my business going to be located?
  3. How many employees will I need?
  4. What types of suppliers do I need?
  5. How much money will I need to start and do I need a loan?

Check out our prior episode if you missed it and make sure to tune in next week for another Fast 5 Episode.
