Azure Application Architecture Guide
This is your essential one stop shop for information on starting and running a practice. Case studies and advice from practitioners, big and small, run alongside outlines of all the key topics, to give you an insight into the problems and challenges others have faced when setting up a design business. Accessible and informative, this handbook is the ideal first point of reference when starting a practice.
Architects have many different reasons for setting up in practice; equally, there are many ways of running your own business. And mid-career experience provides you with the foundations to build your legacy in your late career.

Most architecture schools do not provide you with a good grounding in the business aspects of architecture practice. So, before you quit your day job to start your own practice, take a course at your local college or university on how to start and run a small business.

Architects, for some reason, are typically terrible negotiators, especially in negotiations for fair compensation for their services!
And you will also want to start building yourself a library of go-to business books.
10 Lessons for Running Your Own Architecture Practice

Read broadly and deeply. You need to understand the bigger world around you, but you also need to maintain your expertise in whatever your specialty niche is and you will want to have at least a couple of specialty niches. Chan Kim and Renee Mauborgne suggest entrepreneurs look for business opportunities in uncontested waters blue oceans rather than in competitive, bloody waters red oceans.
That is good advice, but one thing is certain: in North America and Europe, architecture, urban planning, and design are mature markets with limited opportunities for new traditional practices. If you are starting a traditional practice, you will be up against dozens, often hundreds of competitors who will have much deeper portfolios and broader client networks than your new business will have.
So you will need to offer something that sets you apart. Maybe you will be the new expert in computational design? Or maybe you will be a developer-architect? It sounded cool, landed me speaking gigs at conferences, and got me noticed.
