What are the essentials for starting my own business?
Like any enterprise, the essential ingredients to starting up your own interior design business are to have a proven, successful track record of your work. In addition, itâ€™s good to have a bit of financial backing to tide you over while youâ€™re getting established and to pay for unseen expenses that you might not have anticipated at first.
When do I know Iâ€™m ready to go it alone?
Whether youâ€™re working for a company or just starting out, youâ€™ll know when youâ€™re ready and see the signs. If youâ€™re working full-time for a reputable company and are beginning to feel you have outgrown your role and wonâ€™t necessarily gain any new experience, just capitalise on what you already have, thatâ€™s one sign. The other, is being in demand for extra work, and third is having a good client list. The final element is that youâ€™re itching to go it alone. If signs feel familiar, youâ€™re ready to take the leap.
