Fear No.5: Staying afloat
You need money to start up; you need money to operate; and you need money to grow. Throw the dismal economy into the equation–when people are spending less and it’s taking longer for small businesses to get paid and money is even harder to come by.
We at Leap Workshop, believe that failure is a necessary component of successful entrepreneurship. It is impossible for us to improve, learn better ways and to innovate without experiencing a series of small failures. How and what we learn from the failure is what ultimately determines our success.
Many would-be entrepreneurs are also faced with discouragement by others…
for people around you to discourage you from pursuing your entrepreneurial journey. Some will tell you they have your best interests at heart and that they just want you to be realistic. Some may even envy your courage, while others may resent you for having the resolve to actually transform your goals into reality. Ironically enough, those naysayers often end up becoming yaysayers! In fact, once you get an idea for a business, the most important trait you need as an entrepreneur is perseverance. When you set out to launch your business, you’ll be told “no” more times than you’ve ever been told before in your life. You can’t take it personally. You must get beyond the “no” and move on to the next person, because eventually, you will get to a “yes.”
Finally, lack of knowledge, resources, and support can be major challenges encountered by future entrepreneurs, preventing them from transforming their business idea into an actual business…
