Starting an Online Business: Step One.
There is one step and only one step that you must follow when starting an online business.
If you do not have a plan your start up business will fail and you will not be in business for long. If you starting an online business, this is all the more important.
You must plan and keep planning and never give up for a moment on your plan. I would go as far as to say plan until the end of your business. If you want your business to last more than a month, plan to have your business running for say a year.
Never stop planning until the end. Plan for worst case events, and plan for best case events. Never stop planning.
If you want to make money with your business this is all the more important. I write this to remind people that you must have a plan or your business will fail.
