Very relevant questions before starting any business. Each of these questions needs to be explored in depth. However, one should never exclude a vital question: How will I exit and when?

If more people would take the time to not just answer these questions but answer them honestly. There are no shortcuts to building a successful business. Many businesses look successful and fail within a year or two or even months because the foundation that they are built on is unstable.

If everyone who wanted to be an entrepreneur asked themselves these questions and answered them honestly, there would be more success stories.

One other question could be included in all this. How will I design my Small Business Plan? If its going to be short term; it may have a different format from the long term version. This is a fantastic first article with lots more that can be followed up on.

This article is a great outline of how to create a business plan. Refer to all of these, don't skip over any. I see newbies all the time entering into a business so that they can have more time with their families, but they pick a field, like MLM, that is a monster consumer of free time.
