Post one bit of advice for a start-up business



It would be great if we could all post just one bit of advice for a start-up business. I will kick it off!

Dont give in - most businesses dont make it past 12 months but those that do have an ever increasing chance of survival.


You need to have a genuine interest in any business you set up otherwise you are likely to lose motivation extremely quickly if things don’t go to plan. No business ever has a smooth journey from day one so don’t expect one.

Dont give in! If you decided to start a venture then you did it for a reason - dont fall at the first hurdle.
