Figure Out How to Do It _ Every entrepreneur has a very idealistic image in their mind of the kind of business that they want. Getting to that point is a process though and you need to work out a path to get there. One great way to figure out how you will proceed is to first write down what you want to do. Next, write down as many questions as you can about how you are actually going to do it. These will include questions like 'Will I do on_site or off_site catering?', 'How will I get access to kitchen facilities?' or 'How many catering jobs will I need to land each month to break even?'. As you slowly work out the answers to the problems that you come across you can write them down in the appropriate sections of your business plan.
The number of small businesses that are starting up with women at the helm is growing and 30% of business owners in the UK are women (Labour Force Survey 2003). The reasons women decide to start their own business vary, with most reporting that they want to be their own boss, choose their working hours and enjoy better work life balance.
