3 steps to implement a business idea
1. Research - do your research before you plan any further. Ask your peers and other professionals more so than friends and family to find out if you idea is a potential.

2. Create your shop window - your website and social media profiles

3. Start selling yourself - cold calls don't work, try targeting via linked in and scheduling calls with those who you are trying to target.

Growing a business doesn't happen over night, it takes time and hard work. But just keep going! :-)
