Advice when Starting a Business

Worried about not knowing what to do?, how to do it?, or whether you’ll fail? … these concerns stop so many people from starting.

By Leo Babauta.

Recently I encouraged my 13-year-old daughter Maia to start a vegan cupcake business, and it’s so exciting to watch her get started. As I talked to her about starting, she had some worries: She didn’t know how. She didn’t know what kind of business to create.

Today, I’d like to share the lessons I’ve learned about starting a business, in hopes of encouraging you to get started making something you love.

Every Entrepreneur’s Worst Enemy

When your #goals aren’t big enough and you are no longer sold on your own vision, the symptoms of losing interest — what many call #burnout   — are experienced. Anytime you stop reaching for massive success and start settling, you will have problems.

That’s why comfort and complacency are the  #entrepreneur ‘s worst enemy. Who wants average? Only those that have given up on greatness. In the U.S. today, we too often hear people say: “I just want to be comfortable.” This is very dangerous. Such a comfort mentality is what sets entrepreneurs and businesses apart. Look at all the businesses that were once great companies that settled into complacency and no longer exist.

Get too comfortable where you’re at in life and in business and you’ll never get to the next level.

Many people start small businesses and many seem to fail.  Risks always exist in business.

You can reduce those risks if you set aside time to plan in advance. This means defining your business offerings, doing specific market research, recognizing the essential management skills you need, and projecting realistic financial expectations… in short, you can reduce risks when you write and use a business plan.
