No one— no one at all— will tell you it’s easy to start your own business. It should be incredibly hard. And most entrepreneurs are learning the hard way: from their mistakes. And even though there is nothing wrong with this method (failure is a great teacher), you want to save it for the smaller lessons, not the big ones. The good news is that we are living in a time during which an abundance of information is available on just about any topic we can think of- we simply need to be willing to put in some time and effort to learn the skills we need to be successful.
