10 conseils pour aider votre famille à se préparer à l'entrepreneuriat

Les facteurs clés qui vous permettront de sécuriser le soutien de votre famille sont basés sur la transparence, la préparation et la stratégie. Par conséquent, avant de s'aventurer seul, tenez compte de la participation de votre famille, des demandes de renseignements et des attentes concernant la nouvelle entreprise.
  1. Informez votre famille des tenants et aboutissants de votre plan d'affaires
  2. Soyez transparent au sujet des longues heures que vous aurez certainement à consacrer pour assurer le succès de votre entreprise
  3. Expliquez clairement comment vous prévoyez financer votre projet d'affaires et comment vous allez investir cet argent (en particulier, lorsqu'un membre de la famille investit dans votre projet)
  4. Soyez honnête quant aux risques liés à votre marché particulier (produit, service, tendances, technologie, etc.)
  5. Soyez ouvert à leurs commentaires, questions et expertise
  6. Tenez votre famille à jour en organisant des réunions mensuelles pour les informer de vos progrès
  7. Si vous avez des enfants, enseignez à vos enfants le monde des affaires telles que l'explication des termes et des concepts de base, en les encourageant à devenir leur propre patron en créant des bijoux faits à la main ou un kiosque de limonade ou en leur parlant de gestion de l'argent, parmi d’autres sujets
  8. Créez un plan d'affaires familial qui permettra à chaque membre de déterminer les objectifs généraux de la famille et les ressources nécessaires pour atteindre ces objectifs tant sur le plan personnel que professionnel (ou académique)
  9. Équilibrez votre vie de famille avec votre vie entrepreneuriale en déterminant des moments spéciaux qui seront mis de côté à l'avance pour se reposer et s'encourager mutuellement (sortie avec votre conjoint/e, sortie en famille, fêtes ou escapades de fin de semaine, etc.)
  10. Accueillez avec bras ouvert toute l'aide que vous pouvez obtenir (repas, garde de vos enfants, références, conseils, etc.)

  5. Be open to their feedback, questions and expertise
  6. Keep your family up-to-date by holding monthly meetings to inform them on your progress.
  7. If you have children, teach your children about business such as explaining basic terms and concepts, encouraging them to be their own boss by starting handmade jewelry or a lemonade stand or speak to them about managing money, among other topics
  8. Create a family business plan which will allow each member to determine the overall goals of the family, and the resources needed to achieve those objectives both on a personal and professional (or academic) level
  9. Balance family life with entrepreneurial life by determining special moments that will be set apart in advance to rest and encourage each other (lunch dates with your spouse, family dates, party or weekend getaways, etc.)
  10. Welcome with open arms all help you can get (meals, babysitting, referrals, advice, etc.)
