Entrepreneurship is an interesting concept, with so many variables that determine whether you will or won’t be successful, and the time frame within which success can realistically be expected. These variables are well documented, with limitless resources offering useful but sometimes conflicting advice on what it really takes to build a successful small business.
At Tanner Menzies, we believe one of the key elements to this success is the ecosystem of small business, which is intangible but absolutely pivotal when you are starting out on your own.
Once you have made the bold decision to give it all you’ve got, and start your own business, it can be incredibly difficult to make informed decisions on how to spend your precious resources, including time, energy and of course, money. This can all feel like a distraction from what you really want to be doing, and from what you really love, which is focussing on your clients and candidates.
With this in mind, what support systems do you need to put in place in order to be effective in your work from day one? How do you build your ecosystem so that your business can grow without stopping you from doing the work that really matters?
The truth is, that there are probably lots of things you haven’t considered yet. You probably have an already established network which you can tap into, but have you thought about what suppliers you will use for the day-to-day essentials like business cards, or what technology you will be using to deliver the best possible experience to your clients and candidates?
Setting up these elements of your “ecosystem” can seem tedious when you’re eager to get started, and if you haven’t worked in an operational capacity before you probably have no idea where to start. You could hire someone to sort out the logistics for you, but the reality is that most of us can’t hire staff before we’ve started generating revenue. You can search the web, but sometimes the internet is a scary place, and you can’t always afford the risks that accompany sourcing talent from the internet.
Not all decisions are scary ones, but plenty of them do assume a base level of knowledge, for example, the purchasing of a LinkedIn Recruiter subscription or a CRM platform. This can be pricey, and while you have to spend money to make money, it’s hard to know when it is the right time to make these decisions.
One of the fantastic elements of accessing a Tanner Menzies Licence is that we make all of these decisions easy. We have our own ecosystem of networks, suppliers, tools, and platforms which have all been put in place so that you don’t have to give them a second thought.
