When you reach the launch stage, don’t be afraid to make that first leap. Most entrepreneurs’ first ventures fail.  I know, because mine did.  However, the lessons you learn from failure are invaluable and will help you with your next attempts. You have to be very determined and accept that the early stages of launching any business are mostly about just surviving.

Turning an idea into reality is a key step that all entrepreneurs have to master. Try to see your ideas through your customers’ eyes, it’ll help you determine which ideas have a chance of succeeding. You should also check out the competitive forces that might work against you. When I was a boy, if I had looked at my ill-fated Christmas tree business through the eyes of a hungry rabbit, I might have thought twice about sinking my savings into it!

Good luck and remember: whether you’re working for a company or setting up your own business, work hard, persevere and smile, and you will be on the road to success!
