Personal goals chart

A key step in assessing whether you are ready to start a business is to consider your personal goals. Make a list of your goals to help you identify:

  • which goals your business will help you achieve
  • any areas of potential conflict (between personal and business goals)
  • how you can eliminate or reduce conflict between your goals
  • which goals are absolute priorities
  • which goals you are willing to compromise.

Create a list of your goals by reading the sections below and typing your answers into the personal goals chart.
