    About This Episode

    Wow!  In this show we blasted through some of the things you need to consider when you’re starting a business for the first time.

    As everyone taking part had started their own business, and was also working with other businesswomen, this was really about sharing some of the mistakes we made and things we wish we had known when we first got going.

    That said, wherever you are in your business journey, there is always more learning, stuff goes wrong, we need to pivot to survive and we often need to reinvent and start again.  So there is something in here for everyone.

    As the weeks move on, we will take the key points out of this show and expand on them - so this is the groundwork, the key points to think about.

    We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed recording it.

    In the ‘studio’ today were host Sian Murphy, Laura Lawrence, Jackie Groundsell and guest Adelle Helen Martin, founder of The Women In Business Mid Life Club.

    Key Takeaway

    Rules!

    Set ground rules and create simple systems to help you stop racing forwards. 

    Build in set times to check in and revise your business plan, the numbers that matter for your business, and time for you to rest.

    Simple systems for getting paid and dealing with non-payments takes away the personal element and confusing decisions about if you should chase someone who hasn’t paid you.
