So you want to successfully start and run a business? Well, it takes more than just having a great idea. It takes a lot of hard work (and smart work), dedication and honestly, a little bit of luck. It’s not impossible, but it is improbable; I would know. I started a business about a year after I graduated from college. I ran it for two years. I put my heart and soul into that business; I spent countless hours working on the company website, revising the business plan, marketing, networking, and selling. But in the end, my business failed. After two years, I decided it was quitting time. I was heart broken at first; I felt lost and confused. “What do I do now?” was the question I kept asking myself. After months of sulking and feeling sorry for myself, I finally realized what I could do. Even though I wasn’t ready to start another business, I could give advice to other young entrepreneurs like myself. I made so many mistakes as a small business owner; so many mistakes that could have been avoided if I just had the knowledge and experience that I have now. So, that’s what this blog is about. I am an EntrepreLoser; I lost at the game of starting and running a successful business. However, in the process of losing, I became an expert; I now know what NOT to do when starting and running a business, which is just as important as knowing what you should do when starting and running a business. The CEO life isn’t easy; you’re going to need help. You’re going to need proven, practical, reliable, and most importantly, detailed advice on what to do and what NOT to do, not the vague, generalized advice you’re going to get from every other source. This blog is tailored for young entrepreneurs because I know exactly what you’re going through. I know the obstacles in your way, but I also know how to get around them. Taking 10 minutes to read this blog will save you a lot time and wasted effort. Don’t make the same mistakes I made. Follow this blog and learn how to properly start and run a successful business. Good Luck!
