If you are a first time entrepreneur you may feel nervous to get started and begin making money, and this often leads to you saying ‘yes’ to every opportunity that comes along. Whilst being open minded is a good thing, you should ensure you do not get side tracked and have a clear vision in mind.

The old expression is ‘quality over quantity’ and this is very much the case when starting your own business. If you want to take up another venture after starting out on a first this could suggest the initial one is not quite up to scratch.
Your business should be the love and soul of you. It should be something that you feel strongly about or be a dream that you want to make into a reality. You should not be starting a business just because others have made money from it. Try to ensure your business is built around your own strengths and talents. These two factors combined will create a wholesome feel for your clients plus allow you to create a business that will grow from strength to strength.
