Start Up tips!

  • Research is better than guessing or wishing
  • Identify what really makes your offering better than what's already here
  • Really, really nail the above, it will get you off to a flying start
  • Get started as cheaply and as quickly as you can. It is the ONLY way to really test out your business idea!
  • Don't keep putting it off, you need to move forward - small steps are better than no steps. If it's a large project/idea - break it down into phases. Get started on phase one.
  • Family & friends sometimes don't get why you're starting a business, that's ok, get started and show them what you can do!
