Are you interested in becoming an entrepreneur, but don’t no where to start? It’s simple.. just start.
Yes.. as simple as that!
Most small businesses fail within the first 5 yrs according to the U.S. Small Business Administration. The main reasons are due to:
1. A lack of knowledge.
2. A lack of funding.
3. Failure to price product or service correctly.
Most people dream of entrepreneurship, but many never take the next step or they give up too soon. Just a side note.. Entrepreneurship is not for the faint at heart.
If you are comfortable where you are, you probably won’t make it. I advise new, thrill seekers of these 3 things when starting a business.
After you’ve mastered that, I suggest you hire someone to teach you how to start, market, grow and become profitable. If you can’t find anyone, I just might be available. Check here for available times.
After you’ve done all this, now it’s time to put the foot to the medal and put a strategy in place.
