I was lucky , says Lisa Swayne , the 28-year-old principal of Swayne Literary Agency in New York City.In comparison to other businesses , a literary agency requires very little start-up capital all you really need is a phone and a laptop.If I was opening a coffeehouse or a bar , that s a different story , she says.That doesn t mean I wasn t hurting for money.It took me months to make my first sale.In the meantime I was digging under couch cushions for quarters.I couldn t imagine a risk-averse person doing what I did.
According to the Dun & Bradstreet report Starting Your Own Business , the two most common reasons that businesses fail are : ( 1 ) the owner lacks the skills to manage the business ; and ( 2 ) the owner underestimates how much money it will take to get the business off the ground.While you may have a notion of what your business will be , you need some concrete figures before you start looking for funding.
