From the moment you consider starting your own business until the day you open the doors, being an entrepreneur is an exciting yet challenging experience. However, there are things that you should keep in mind that will not leave you regretting how you approach entrepreneurship. These include:
Starting and moving too fast
It is important to setup goals, but be sure that those goals are not rushed or you will look back and see the errors of your ways. Patience is key when starting your own business but being smart is another key.
Being too careful
This is the opposite end of the spectrum where you start your business but are unwilling to spend the necessary money in order to position your business. You need to spend money to make money so try to find the perfect science of not too fast (above) and not too slow (here)!
