We hear a great deal about the newbie start up businesses – often referred to in terms of a’fledgling’ because it can be rather like a baby bird’s first attempts at moving away from the parental nest. It’s all scary, nervous and jumpy moves in every direction until a unified method of operation takes over and it soars skywards! Getting the knowledge on all things connected with running that business is critical before any hasty, life changing decisions are taken. If you are working and this hobby of yours becomes the obsession of your life – the one thing you want to make a big success of, you have to know exactly how much income you need to survive on whilst your fledgeling starts to settle and then soar. Ensuring you save or put aside adequate living funds before launch is the only way to focus the mind on the long haul.
