  •    Hire people to compensate for your weaknesses. Everyone has some weaknesses; maybe you are good at something and completely lack the other things. This is very normal. But the smart thing to do here is to hire people that can compensate for your weaknesses. For example, Steve Jobs was not an engineer so he hired the engineer to work for him and to build for him. He has great marketing skills and he made a smart choice. And everyone knows about the success of his company.
  •    One very common mistake most new start-ups make is that they do not assess the market. Most entrepreneurs became successful because they sold the people what they wanted. If they had come out with something that people didn’t need or was already available I’m the market for a better price under a better brand name, they would have never succeeded.
  •    As your start-up starts to grow and develop into a bigger company there are numerous changes that take place. There are going to be big problems like various financial problems, or supply problems or someone may launch something better than your product in the market. Whatever happens to accept the change and be quick in dealing with it. Make fast decisions and don’t let the problem last for long
  •     Customers are the soul of any business, so providing customers with excellent services should be your goal. Whatever their issues are, solve them with patience and maintain humbleness. Also, create some customer loyalty programs or provide them with bonuses. Your customers are like magnets; the more charged they are the more they will attract other customers. It is rightly said ‘sales without services is like putting money into a pocket with holes’. Always check with your customer service team and keep a tab on how they behave with the customers. Setting some guidelines is also a good way to let them know how the customer should be treated.
  •    One of the biggest mistakes any new business can make is to run out of cash. Always raise cash that is double than what you exactly need. This will help you overcome any accidental financial setbacks and keep your business going.
  •    Have a healthy relationship with your employees. Correct them when they are wrong and help them correct the mistake. Think of your employees as your team. You are not superior to them. So stay open to any suggestions and make a healthy work environment so that people are not scared of sharing their thoughts
  •    As an entrepreneur, you need to put your 100% effort on anything you do for a long time. So be consistent and be patient.  It takes a time to become a big success and if you lose patience, your company may fail badly.
  •    Keep moving forward is the motto of many successful entrepreneurs. They do not let failures bother them. They take those failures as opportunities to deliver a better result and they do just that.
  •    A successful entrepreneur never sets out to be rich. If you set out to be rich, you will take shortcuts to gain wealth and those shortcuts will not be helpful to you in the days to come. All successful entrepreneurs are more about what product and services they give out to their customers and less about how much money they make.
  •    Successful entrepreneurs always market their products smartly. Spending a lot of your budget on marketing does not benefit all the time. Marketing is like gambling sometimes you win and sometimes you lose.  So it is best to put the little money on marketing and do the marketing after knowing your audience. The money can be utilized in the betterment of your product and other services.
