Many people starting a new business think that it’s an easy ride. Tired of working for someone else, often thoughts of “I can do this myself” lead the way to start a business when all you have is a core skill and a desire to work less and earn more.
While this is a great incentive to start, it’s not enough to keep you going when things get tough (and they will). Aside from this, you also need to understand your “why” (check out the find your purpose post) in more depth and you need to educate yourself on how to run a business. I love the phrase “you don’t know what you don’t know” however as part of being a small business owner it’s imperative that you find out what you don’t know! There is no-one above you, supporting you or telling you it’s ok when you say you didn’t know something!
