When you are first starting your new business, you generally reach out to many different networks and people for all of the tips and advice that you can get, especially if this is the first time ever that you have opened up your own business. Here are some key lessons that every person should use when starting up their business, recently posted on Up And Running.
There is more to life than business. Business will be here today and tomorrow and the next day. A healthy approach to running your business includes time off to focus on things that make you personally fulfilled, whether they are family, kids, hobbies, etc.
People are the single most important asset that your business will ever have. Lets face it, without people (clients) your business will not make any profit and thus never survive past 6 months in business. Your planning is never done! Always remember that as long as your business is open, you will need to continue planning for its future.
The most important thing to remember is that you can not do it all! So stop trying to turn yourself into superman or super woman, it will never happen. Hire some people that you can delegate smaller tasks down to and create more time for the important things that you need to concentrate on.
