The Best Advice I’ve Learned Running My Business… | D E S T A C A D O !

The Best Advice I’ve Learned Running My Business… | D E S T A C A D O ! | Gabriel Catalano human being | #INperfeccion® a way to find new insight & perspectives |

Running a business, especially in the early days of getting it up and running, can be a tough and lonely endeavour.


It is in the nature of many new entrepreneurs, to only listen to their own voice, and to initially not take advantage of the advice of others who have gone before them.


This good article, provides tips from 59 small business owners and entrepreneurs, and any entrepreneur should find several that will be very useful to them as they progress on their own journey.

Getting ready to start a business? Whoo hoo for you!
Are you ready to jump in but not sure where to start or what you’re getting yourself into?

We can honestly say that the best way to learn is to learn from others who have been in your shoes. Often we don’t want to listen to others and take their advice mostly because it’s a pride thing and we think we know it all. BUT at some point you have to realize that when people offer you advice, you most definitely need to take it and apply it. Don’t think for one second you have it all figured out because you don’t.

Here are tips from small business owners and entrepreneurs who have been paving their way with success while also falling flat on their face at times…
“Don’t go at it alone, get a support system. We constantly bounce ideas of each other. If ones down the other is there for support.” -Karen Rapport, Feel the Hugs


“The hardest lesson I have had to learn is that “I can do anything” doesn’t mean ‘I can do everything’. In my case it wasn’t even so much about a resistance to delegating or budget, just a genuine misconception that because I can do something, it should land on my plate. Sometimes because I felt like it would take longer to teach someone than to do it myself — which may have been true of the first time, but by the fifth time, it would have taken far less time to have taught it in the first place. It also made me a bottle-neck on far too many projects.”

-Gisela McKay, Natural Health Care Canada


“No business plan survives contact with reality, so instead of spending a lot of time planning your business get out there and start building! I spent too much time trying to plan, only to find out that the plan is thrown out the window at first contact with the customer.” -Matthew Richter-Sand, NXFIT


“Learn as much as you can so you don’t have to outsource every little thing needed. If you don’t you can quickly see your cash reserves melt away.” -Maciej Fita, Brandignity
“Outside of understanding your industry as much as possible, it’s important to understand that you must continue to learn an seek advice from successful business owners. Don’t look at competitors solely as enemies, rather create relationships and learn from their mistakes. Learning what obstacles to avoid early on help prevent failure and lead you to profitability faster.” -Mark Simmons, Mixed Digital


“They say ‘Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.’ What “they” neglect to add is that means everything you once loved then becomes a job. Think long and hard if you are ready for the consequences of that before you start.” -Alina Adams, Alina Adams Media
“After fourteen years of running a small business, the best advice I’d share is to focus on business development. A business will fail without revenue, even if it is housed in a great space and uses great accounting software. Make the cash register ring…” -Paul Charles, Paul Charles and Associates


“Give frustration a time limit. No matter what goes wrong in the course of the workday, I give myself exactly ten minutes to be upset about it and then it’s time to drop it and move on. Self-pity is not a business strategy.” -Nathan Hunt, Dressler Advertising

“Forget the Golden Rule, there is no guarantee that your preferences match those of the people around you .. your customers, your employees, your friends or your family. Observe, adapt and ask when necessary. Collaboration and co-operation combined with praise and acknowledgement will help you to build powerful relationships. Treating people with disdain, disregarding their needs, disrespecting them as people will not get you where you want to go – no one can give their best when living in a state of fear.” -Anne Miner, The Dunvegan Group


“Never assume that whoever you hire is going to just do it right because this or that is something that they do daily. thorough explanation must be addressed always!” -Holly Xerri, Camibands


“I learned that the first 3 years are the roughest. You’ll want to quit every single week while you’re in business. Lots of business seem to quit before the 3 years mark, without realizing they were so close to becoming profitable. The temptation to quit is strong, when your friends are driving nice cars, going out to eat at nice places – and you’re stuck driving a rusty Camry, living with your parents and making peanut butter sandwiches. After 3-4 years things start flowing and you’re making 5 times more than what you were making at your previous job – with less work. As cliche as it is, hardwork pays off…just wait 3 of the toughest years of your life.” -Jovim, Inoprints


“The best advice I can give someone is that you need to do the marketing for your business when you first start out. We paid some people a lot of money and got no results and doing it on our own, we’ve gotten good results. So try people out before you buy into anything they sale. We also learned how to market and started a marketing company as well.” Michael Flanigan, Expressionary
