Planning and Starting a Business  
Do you have what it takes to make a business succeed?
  There are many questions you need to answer before you dive in.

Try this self-evaluation guide to see if you have what it takes to succeed or take a look at the Bank of Montreal's small business tips to getting paid. This site has a list of questions you need to ask yourself as well as important keys for survival. Other questions you will need to think about are:

  • Am I the kind of person who can get a business started and make it go?

  • Do I know how much money I will need to get the business started?

  • Do I need or want a partner involved?

  • Do I know what licenses and permits I need?

Now that you have asked the right questions and if you have determined that you want to start a business, you will need to conduct a series of steps before you even open your doors, such as:

  • Registering your business

  • Writing a business plan

  • Financing the business

  • Marketing the business

Hiring the right people and treating them fairly, motivating them, compensating them….these are also all key issues to one of the most important component of your business…people. If you want general information on human resource matters, the Human Resource Office for Employers in Saskatchewan contains information designed to help employers manage the human resource side of their business, from labour and employee relations to pay and benefits, recruitment and training.

You might also want to take a look at the Human Resource Guide: Managing Your Human Assets. this is a self-study learning tool designed to inform employers about human resource management skills.

Other web sites that are very comprehensive and cover all the issues above and sometimes more are Canada-Saskatchewan Business Service Centre, Industry Canada or Services For Employers and Entrepreneurs. All are information-packed sites with all you’ll need to know about markets, trade and investment, managing your business. These are must-see sites for entrepreneurs.
