Three signs you might be ready to start or expand your own business: you have a passion for your new venture, you’re a true believer in your idea, and you’re ready to learn – a lot!  

If you’re thinking of starting or expanding your own business, 2022 is a great year to do it. Small business loan interest rates have remained low. And the disruptions brought on by the pandemic provide plenty of opportunities to find a new niche across online and offline businesses.  

The pandemic, as much as it’s been challenging and overwhelming, can also be an opportunity to position your business for the future. The resulting disruptions provide valuable lead time to build up your customer base, refine your sales strategy, and level up your social media game. And once the economy starts to shift again, you’ll be ready to ride the wave up.
