Want a Little Business A`La Carte?

One of my friends is a bit compulsive about any food presented to her.She often prefers any liquid foods to be a’la carte. Whether a gravy, sauce or type of condiment, she simply enjoys having those items on the side rather than on top or mixed in with her meal.

Many people prefer to start or even keep a business that way.

They are perhaps employed full or part-time as an employee and want to start a business but logistically must do it “on the side.”

Now many people will tell you that is not a wise way to start a business, but I totally disagree.

I started my first business while working full time as an employee.Yes, it took some inventive strategies to make sure I was able to juggle both positions effectively and it certainly involves some grit and stamina, but I know if I did it, you can too!

Many of my clients have A`La Carte businesses.They are either transitioning from traditional employment or have elected to grow a business on the side in addition to their current career.

A`la Carte businesses can be just as, if not more successful than even running a business without any career competition especially if you have the right mindset and determination.

Here are FIVE Necessary Factors that contribute to Successful A` La Carte businesses.

  1. TIME MANAGEMENT…It’s difficult enough to have a career without a side business and still manage a family and home.Running an A` la Carte business requires putting into place time management strategies to work on your side business to help it be successful without compromising relationships, health, or current employment .
  2. RELATIONAL SUPPORT…Working at a job and then running a business A`La Carte requires communication among all involved. Your significant other, family members and other colleagues needs to be “on the same page” for your business to grow and become successful.
  3. ADAPTABILITY…Few people can start a business A`La Carte and not experience some obstacles. One of my clients had a perfect schedule mapped out to be able to grow her business on the side while working part time. However, when a colleague had an emergency, my client was asked to move into full time employment for several months. Her Plan B changed immediately and she had to be adaptable and resilient in order not to let her new venture just sit on the back burner.

Great, practical tips Kathy. I think with things as they are today, many people find it necessary to have a side business so your expertise is very helpful.
