What are the TOP 5 mistakes people make when starting a new business? Please share advice/examples for all of them.
Robin Salvador : 1. Not planning enoughBefore anything else, make sure you have a solid plan in place for starting your business. This will help you stay on track, avoid making mistakes, and boost your chances of success.
2. Failing to research properlyWhen starting a new business, it’s important to do your research. This means understanding the market, your competition, and the regulations that apply to your industry.
3. Not setting realistic goalsIf you’re not sure where you want your business to be in two years, how can you expect to reach your goals? Set measurable targets and allow yourself time to achieve them.
4. Making too many mistakes early onDon’t let yourself get bogged down by minor problems – they’ll only multiply over time and sap your energy and motivation. Instead, focus on solving the biggest challenges first.
5. Not following through with promises or commitmentsIt’s essential that you keep your word – not only to customers, but also to yourself. If you can’t be trusted to follow through on what you say, chances are no one else will either.
