So you want to become an entrepreneur. The good news is, it has never been easier. The bad news is everyone else knows that so they all want to be entrepreneurs too. Starting a business these days can be like putting a drop of water in the ocean, so how do you be different than the pack? You need a solid plan.

Forbes wrote a quick guide to how you should be thinking if you want to start a business. Here is one example of what they had to say using an example of a non-profit startup:

What You Need 

1. Think about how to change your own experience — then change it for others.

You should find something that doesn’t work how you want it to, and fix it. My inspiration occurred in Mexico when I was twelve. For the first time, I saw extreme poverty that engulfed young children, leaving them begging on the street. I’ve volunteered to help change that situation ever since. Now we’re changing it for others through my nonprofit, helping thousands of people make a difference through international giving and volunteering.

By looking at things in your own way you make both yourself an your company more unique. There are also tips about what you don’t need as well:

What You Don’t Need 

1. Money

I’m not going to say ignore it. It’s nice to have it, but it isn’t always necessary. Biz Stone, one of the founders of Twitter, needed to make Twitter take off. He didn’t spend six months raising funds. He listened to what users needed: a concise way to express themselves and receive information, globally. He just launched the software and it took off.

These are just a couple of examples of what you can expect to learn from this article. Go to forbes.com to learn more and don’t forget to sign up for our free newsletter giving you instant access to more guides like this.
