Learning Lessons From 20
Successful Startup Founders
Starting your own company could be one of the most rewarding, but also challenging, things you will ever do.
Whether you have already started your small business, or are just getting started with developing your big idea, you know that you’ve got a learning curve ahead of you.
Figuring out the most effective strategies to make a success of your new life as an entrepreneur is an exciting part of being your own boss. It can also be quite daunting and isolating, as you are now responsible for the future of your enterprise.
With so many things to consider, you might worry about missing an opportunity or making a mistake that could have a dramatic effect on your business. It’s really important not to let this anxiety hold you back. Remember that you fail at 100% of the projects you don’t start, and mistakes are crucial opportunities for learning and growth.
Of course, it would be much better if you could learn from the mistakes and experiences of others, so you can avoid making them yourself. You can benefit from others’ effective strategies and success stories, too. The good news is, there is a wealth of useful guidance and advice available to help you learn from your peers.
It’s important to reach out to your community for support, through local networking and mentorship programmes. This will make you feel less isolated and boost your confidence, as well as give you access to strategic tips, useful contacts, and industry secrets, as well.
You can also benefit from the wisdom of the many highly successful founders and entrepreneurs who have willingly shared the lessons from their own experiences. To get you started, HeadwayCapital has put together this useful infographic of 20 mini startup lessons from successful founders...
