KNOW YOUR MARKET NICHE AND COMPETITORS
In this chapter, Mihails uncovers what he considers to be the most critical questions an entrepreneur and business development managers should ask before even considering committing to a business potential.
FINANCIAL AND LEGAL CONSIDERATIONS
This chapter explores the financial considerations to which business people should pay the strictest attention. It starts with setting a realistic income generation level. This involves thinking about relevant costs your business might face at different points in time, from conducting initial market research and defining the development budget to closing the business.
HOW TO COMMUNICATE EFFECTIVELY
By understanding how to communicate efficiently, business owners and managers can present relevant opportunities in order to obtain required financing from the bank or persuade a customer to become a long-term client, for instance.
This chapter focuses on how to prepare yourself (and your business) for appropriate project management and how to master your team collaboration skills.
HAVE A PLAN B AND AN EXIT STRATEGY
In this chapter, the author focuses on business exit considerations, which should not be avoided, as these protect businesses in cases where something goes wrong. This may involve anything from recurring delayed invoice pay-outs to third-party inability to follow the contract terms. It is also wise to be prepared for the right moment to exit the business through sale (or divestiture) to parties interest in your established business.
