5 Lessons You Need To Learn If You Own A Start Up

Everyone knows that you can learn valuable lessons by making mistakes and failing at something, however, we avoid doing this the best we can. What we can do is learn from other entrepreneur’s mistakes and take on board their advice of how best to avoid them to help you have a better chance of success.

Delegate
You can’t do everything yourself, you can give it a go but the results won’t be as satisfactory as they would be if you delegated your tasks out to people who are a lot better at it than you. Know what you’re skilled at and excel in that, leaving the rest to better suited people.

On every future author’s lips is, ‘to find a publisher or to self-publish, that is the question?’ Finding the right agent/publisher takes time and often they are only interested in authors who have proven themselves in the market or people with a massive social network. There are also many self-published books that just don’t look professional and they would never stand up against published books in the bookstore and you don’t want that for your creation either, right?

I couldn’t wait for my work to be in print so that I could get on with the rest of my life, so I decided to self-publish, but discovered it is a challenging and character building journey. There are many sharks out there looking to relieve the unsuspecting, naïve self-publisher of LOTS of money, promising to take the strain and make you into the next JK Rowling. Beware.
