Starting your Non-Medical Home Care Business does not require a degree or prior experience. However, you must have a high level of commitment to the business to be successful.

Starting and running a business is very exciting but can also be very stressful. Applying for S. Jones Academy's program will give you the support you need to reach your goals.
As the owner of a Non-Medical Home Care Business carries a great responsibility. You will have to possess organizational skills, daily planning, consistency, and ability to limit your distractions, (tv, unnecessary phone calls). Getting plenty of rest, good nutrition, daily exercise will help you through the days ahead.
We all like the idea of running our own business. We value the freedom, the possibility of unlimited income and the idea of spending our time working for ourselves – not for someone else.
If you’re considering starting your own company, you need to know what it takes to set it up and steer that ship to success. There are many things I’m sure you’ve picked up during your years of employment that will prove useful in the future. Here are some suggestions on the kind of experiences you should have before you become a self-employed entrepreneur.
The home care business will require you to lead a team at some point. Even if we’re only talking about two or three employees, you’ll need to have developed some effective leadership skills. Knowing how to be a team leader is the essence of entrepreneurship – you should be able to provide a vision, motivate others and hold it all together in times of crisis. Remember not to rely too much on others – once you open your own business, you’ll be the one making all the tough decisions.
Understanding the legal side of your future venture is crucial if you want to make it work. Before you resign from your current position and delve into the exhilarating world of self-employment, you should make the most of your time at the office. Learn as much as you can about how to run a business. Administrative and technical details are crucial and you can observe them in action in your workplace.
And by that, we don’t mean at your local gym. Every employer who values their workers has an interest in their professional development. See if you can get some additional training sponsored by your workplace. From the art of presentation and public speech to detailed courses on Excel and leadership training, those additional qualifications will contribute to your future success as an entrepreneur.
Working provides a great opportunity for networking, especially if you’d like to situate your future venture in the industry you’re already a part of. Getting to know important people might grant you new partnerships, investments or, simply, a piece of good advice. Having a chat with entrepreneurs who already run their business will help you to get a sense of what you aim to do.
Problem solving, creativity, persistence and risk tolerance can all be developed while you’re working on your current projects. Knowing how to work under pressure will be invaluable once you get your own business running and suddenly discover that working eight hours a day was a blessing.
