STARTUP From journalist to entrepreneur

Tue, 2014-09-16 14:59

Not too long ago, Cheryl Tan had been covering Hampton Roads businesses in her role as a television anchor and reporter.

These days, she's advising them in her role as an entrepreneur.

Tan closed the book on her TV journalism career on May 30 and officially began Cheryl Tan Media LLC the next day. The shift has brought its challenges, but she has yet to be deterred from her goal of helping small business owners enhance their marketability.

How SCORE Helped

Our consulting firm wanted to open its own Early Childhood Center.  With over 25 years combined experience, we had a solid business plan, budget, and the space we wanted to start with.  We were in need of capital.  We had poor-fair credit, and one partner is not a US citizen.  No bank would help us.  Our mentor, Richard, assisted with obtaining a micro-loan from Pasco EDC, negotiations on the lease, budget revisions, and general financing information.  He is a wealth of knowledge for small businesses.  He is still involved with this project.  We are marketing the new business, and Richard has helped us get the most for our marketing budget.  Richard has been so instrumental throughout this process.

Developing a plan for a new business (or even for an exiting one) can be a messy process.  There are many things to consider and often the process of developing the plan involves juggling lots of ideas and pieces of the plan.  This template is intended to help an entrepreneur organize all of the many ideas. One way to do it is to write each question on a sheet of paper and then spread the sheets out on the kitchen table.  Then as ideas come up or answers are found, write them on the appropriate sheet.  After while, as the sheets fill up, you will start seeing the best path for the organization.
