First, you should work at a similar business to the one you intend to start in the future, this will give you an insight to;
1- Learn everything from the ground up including cleaning customer areas/wash-rooms (so you can tell your future employees you did that) which will both give you respect and make your training new employees better and
2- You would go through the motion (and emotions) of how the employees feel about the job and that is extremely important to build a loyal team.
I highly recommend you becoming a manager first (so you can manage the business), taking a few management courses (Time planning, leadership, business controls, etc.).
I also recommend reading or listening to audio books about your first business and personal change such as;
- The E-Myth Revisited … By Michael E. Gerber.
- The One Minute Entrepreneur … By Ken Blanchard, Don Hutson & Ethan Willis.
- Rich Dad – Poor Dad … By Robert Kiyosaki
- The Richest Man in Babylon … By George S. Clason
- Think & Grow Rich (21st Century Edition) … By Napoleon Hill
- How to Win Friends & Influence People … By Dale Carnegie
- The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People … By Stephen R. Covey
- Also a few names to research, watch on YouTube, buy their audio books and learn from.
- Jim Rohn,
- Zig Ziglar,
- Jack Canfield,
- Brian Tracy,
- Anthony Robbins,
- Og Mandino.
All the books mentioned above are available on Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk in many formats including Kindle, paperback and audiobook, I have provided the links for each book, just click on the name of the book.
To utilise your time better and learn at a faster pace, I recommend you buy the audio books and play them in your car, mobile phone or both.
That way, you will learn while commuting to work and other places.
There is so much to learn, but if you listen to the above advice, you will learn most of what you need within 2-3 years.
I hope this puts you on the right path to succeed in your future business and I wish you the best of luck.
