My husband and I wanted to launch a startup. My husband was fed up with working in a 9-5 job and wanted to get through the never-ending hand-to-mouth monthly salary loop. Thanks to our uncle, who guided us and made us soon realize that the most important thing is to have a business role model that serves as a blueprint for your startup because you can never fulfill your dream without it. You must be well aware of how your startup is going to generate earnings. Without having a systematic approach, your startup can fail right away. My uncle, my husband, and I worked hard to create a well-planned and organized business model. But after we had set a particular business model, we needed money which we didn't have, so we did the next best thing. We applied for a grant to get our business going. What I like about grant funding is that the awardees don't necessarily demand equity from the awardees. Now with financial worries aside, we took another step that played a pivotal role in the success of our startup. This step was to find investors for our business. This step has to be done by carefully explaining your ideas and goals because by being vague, you can certainly lose money coming in. You have to convince your investors that your business will give them profit. Still, you cannot do that unless you have a complete hold of your idea, how it's going to function, and why it will be profitable. We checked all these points and succeeded in launching our startup a few months ago, which is growing with every passing second. If you can succeed in taking these steps with an appropriate approach, congratulations, you'll soon become a startup business owner.
