Starting a business for the first time and worried about failure? Give your new enterprise the best chance of success with these top business tips, the best advice I've collated from other entrepreneurs and developed from my own experience of more than 20 years of having "been there and done that" as a small business person.
1) Be passionate about what you do.
You don't have to love whatever your business is about (and probably shouldn't), but you do have to be fired up about it.
You're going to devote a lot of time and energy to starting a business and building it into a successful enterprise, so it's really important that you truly deeply enjoy what you do, whether it be running fishing charters, creating pottery or providing financial advice. Make sure you're on the right track by asking yourself these three questions before you do anything else.
