Plan and beyond

Start an Small Town Enterprise
There are many kinds of entrepreneurs. There are various reasons entrepreneurs decide to establish an enterprise. For those who want to start an enterprise in small-town communities How do you ensure that you are doing it right?

Create your list
You can easily identify the gap or issue in a small city by using Google and taking a stroll.
Walk around town if you are an existing resident. Take a look at the offerings of local businesses. Spend some time looking around and notice the things you like.
Spend the weekend with someone that you like even if you don't have family nearby. While there, start asking the same questions: What would I want to find there?

While there may be a couple of restaurants and a hardware store, what else would you want to see in the area? What businesses could you find in a town that has an immediate bus connection to a large city? Is the town located near natural resources that people haven't considered using for business yet?
Are there rivers, mountains or lakes? Or hiking trails? What would be a possible business if you had an intermodal train line between the city and hiking trails? There are many urbanites who would want to hike but aren't able to drive or take their equipment on trains. Maybe an equipment rental shop could let all their equipment, or even an aid service could be a feasible business idea.
Make the names of those you want to contact.
Now you have your list. However, that is just one perspective. Next, inquire about the town's requirements. Ask the residents of the town what they require or what they wish that they could have. Do you have to go out of town to go to a dry cleaner or for entertainment? Ask as many people you want to, and not only one or two people.
Take a few minutes in the most crowded places in town to record answers and questions. You can ask the residents of the town, entrepreneurs, the government officials, etc. Keep asking until you get the same responses.
The Chamber of Commerce in your region is an excellent source. Chambers of Commerce in your area are likely to be on the lookout for business concepts. In addition to keeping an eye on companies, the chamber could also be an excellent connection as you move through your business processes.
Bonus: By asking many people questions, you'll be able start building connections that may be useful. This can aid in speeding the process should you decide on launching your own business.
You'll have a list with businesses you created, and an additional list of businesses that other people have added to your list. This is the perfect time to compare these two. You will find some businesses that are similar in the tests.
Identifying the best gap for you
Is there anything on that list that you think is reasonable? Did you find an area that you thought, "Wow, I already own everything I need for this?"
You might be asked: Have you ever worked in the bakery industry? How about a pastry shop? In both production and retail. Do you bake on weekends too? Have you created your own recipes. Have you ever sold baked goods? Do you belong to a baking group?
Is it the right time to open your own bakery? It's possible, but it may not be. The issue is: Do you really want to do?
If you are aware that you don’t want the opening of a bakery, even though you love pastries, that’s fine. It's important to find things that meet these three requirements.
What kind of city do we require?
What are I skilled at? -- if I'm not sure, what do I enjoy doing?
What do I want to achieve?
These are the things you need to be in alignment, and you'll be on the right track.
Guard your downside and hedge your bets
Now we've asked a lot questions to help build an understanding of the foundations and identify a business that we want to start. It is now time to ask the fundamental questions that will validate the idea.
These questions will aid you in identifying the challenges that you need to overcome before you launch a business.
The business will fail since there's not enough customers to generate an ROI.

Do you think this business will fail because you don’t have the knowledge necessary?
Is your product or service not enough to make your business succeed?
These questions will aid you in filling a gap the strongest possible -- increasing your chances of success.
Do you think it is possible to slowly fill the gap using your resources? In this way, your company will be more successful than if it attempts to fill the gap in a hurry and then be unable to fill it.
Do you think it would be possible to begin with a smaller amount. Do you think it's possible to rent a smaller space in a commercial building instead of buying the whole item? Can customers to sign up in advance? You may be able to start it in your home, even in the event that you're not a resident of the city. Perhaps, you could fill a smaller part of the gap in order to begin?
If you feel that you are facing more challenges than you are able to handle, you should do one of these two things. Either find a solution that works or look for another opportunity. Once you've solved your issue, identified your gap, and are now ready to take the next step and take the next step.
