One issue that ADHD entrepreneurs struggle with is that they are able to come up with many ideas to make money, but they do not have the time or resources to properly act on all of the ideas. Business owners often end up trying to integrate too many of these good ideas into their existing business. This is a recipe for failure because it can confuse and overwhelm existing and potential customers. It can also cause you to reduce your focus on the things that are making currently making you successful. The best way to keep your focus on your business is to have a business plan.
There are many great resources that will help you in establishing a business plan. Personally I like the template on the Small Business Administration website. It will help to guide you by developing a business plan step by step. Developing a business plan can still seem overwhelming to many budding entrepreneurs. To keep it simple, start by asking yourself these three questions.
- What product or service do I want to provide?
- Is there a need for the products or service I want to provide?
- Who are my customers?
If you have a successful business venture you should already be able to answer to your first two questions. If you want to be able to keep and expand your business, it is vital that your understand everything you can about who your customers are and what their needs are. With this understanding you will be able to determine what additional ideas you can incorporate into your business, and what ideas won't be a good fit for your business.
