Mistakes to avoid

Failing to create appropriate accountability- You need to create accountability or else people do take you for granted. Let it be suppliers, employees, etc, they should be held accountable for the non-commitment of work.

Ignoring the instincts- In business, you should always trust your instincts. For instance, if you get a feel not to trust your business advisor as he might be giving you a biased opinion, you need to check it out immediately. You should verify the claims. Or else, people do tend to take you for a ride.

Working with wrong people- You need to be extra cautious while picking the people to work for you. If you are able to pick the right one for the job, half of your work is done. A trustworthy and loyal employee is the backbone of any business. The moment you are working with a wrong person, the business is going to hit low.

Start with enough funding- Before you begin the business, you need to ensure that you are able to secure enough funding to run the initial days till the business generates revenue and profit. Without proper fund, all the activities of the business would come to standstill and it would be quite tough to make it start running again.
