5 Tips for Starting Your Own Business


Recommended Posts

Our CEO @michakaufman shares 5 tips for starting a business:

1) Don’t think Big. Think BIGGER

Don’t chain that passion to reason- embrace it, use it and continually push the extent and reach of the vision that drives you. Remember, being timid never works in the epic journey towards building your own business.

2) Hire people smarter than you

The wisdom of real delegation comes from the simple understanding that there are others around you better equipped to handle what you are struggling to deal with alone, and by hiring the right people for the right job, it will make it easier for you to get to the next level.

3) Realize that perfect means ‘Good Enough’

Bringing a product or service to market successfully is dependent on a multitude of factors, many of them outside of your control and each one of them unwilling to wait for you to get it ‘perfect’. Get your idea good enough to launch-THEN spend your time perfecting it!

4) Get used to hearing ‘No’

Your concept’s survivability comes down to how hard you believe it’s worth fighting for. If you are absolutely certain you are right no matter what, the one person who will always back you up is yourself. Being an entrepreneur means not only hearing no, it means saying no to yourself when things go sideways and your fear tells you to back down.

Simplicity is the key

Unnecessary complexity all too often is the deal breaker when running that final stretch. It’s easy to be complex, but it’s hard to keep things simple. Taking the time to reduce everything to basic principles can make all the difference between success and failure.
