Am I open to meeting new people and listening to a variety of new ideas?
I am most definitely open to meeting new people because like a student on the first day of class, I am ready to listen and take lots of notes! Along with new ideas, I will gladly also accept hacks, ins-outs, recommendations, suggestions, fruit-for-thought, pearls-of-wisdom, articulations, directives, tips, point-of-views….EVERYTHING!
Is my past education and experience relevant to the industry I’m looking at?
My education is a Masters in Business Administration, and a Bachelors degree in Organizational and Development – I believe that my college education is relevant and desireable, but not necessary.
My past work experience is primarily in the healthcare industry, very unrelated to the type of work I do now – but all that does not matter.
What are my financial goals, both personally and for the business?
My personal goals are practical, simple and logical:
- Grow an emergency fund – because that is absolutely necessary;
- Purchase a house and pay off the mortgage in 10 years
- Save up for retirement
Business financial goals
- Increase sales for more revenue
- Decrease business expenses
- Increase profit
Alright ya’ll, I am almost done working through these questions! More later!
