START­ING SOME­THING NEW IN FRANCE

Living France - - LIFESTYLE -

If you in­tend to run a busi­ness, make sure you re­search your mar­ket, and make sure there is de­mand for the prod­uct or ser­vice you are de­vel­op­ing.

Choose some­thing you love as the ba­sis of your busi­ness – it’s im­por­tant to en­joy what you do, so that you put 100% into your work and get plea­sure from it.

When liv­ing some­where re­mote, try us­ing on­line fo­rums. They’re a great source of in­for­ma­tion from oth­ers in­ter­ested in the same craft or cre­ative ac­tiv­ity as you. Look on­line and visit the lo­cal mairie to see whether there are any clubs or or­gan­i­sa­tions that can help get you started.

Check your qual­i­fi­ca­tions. Some oc­cu­pa­tions re­quire spe­cific cre­den­tials; make sure you check with the rel­e­vant au­thor­ity that you have the qual­i­fi­ca­tions you need.

Be adapt­able. Be pre­pared to adapt your busi­ness or en­ter­prise de­pend­ing on cir­cum­stances. If you have a new idea, go with it. It could take you in a whole new di­rec­tion!
