Why Entrepreneurs Have the Most to Learn, Observe and Revamp

We have all heard that to be in business, it is important to focus on what we most enjoy. But life sometimes gets in the way and problems arise from:

  • Lack of experience
  • Feeling of obligation
  • The better revenue stream is the least enjoyable

As you begin with one or two ideas that bring a smile to your face, think about next steps, too. Think about the audience(s) that these will attract.
