Re: Six Things I Wish I'd Known When I Started My Business

"Work for yourself, not by yourself" is spot on! There's real power in knowing what you don't know and building the right support network to fill in the gaps. Ask around, find friends of friends with needed skillsets and take them out for coffee. Post your questions on QB Community! There are plenty of opportunities for new learning, and you never know where they might lead you on your small business journey.

Re: Six Things I Wish I'd Known When I Started My Business
I love this post @LeslieBarber ! It was incredibly insightful and I could definitely make several connections.

 

I completely agree with this = "the art is your passion. The science is your business model". If an individual is not passionate about what they do, it can speak volumes. When someone isn't passionate, you can see it. I have always ensured I have stayed passionate about my work, this has made my readers excited about my services! 

 

There are two things I wish I had known when I was first starting out as a business owner - organising is KEY and being yourself is the greatest asset. Being yourself adds personal value to your work and being organised allows you to focus on the creative aspects of your role (the fun part!). However, I am always learning new things!

 

@carlsorace Carl, because you said that you were a new business in the U.K, I thought you would appreciate this post! What do you wish you had known when you first started out in the business world?

Re: Six Things I Wish I'd Known When I Started My Business

Hi, Karsty

 

I loved this post from Leslie on the six things she wishes she had known when starting out in the business world.

 

Is there one thing you wish you had known before you started out @Karsty? Smiley Happy or do you feel like you are continuously learning?

Re: Six Things I Wish I'd Known When I Started My Business

Hi, robinrosshhi,

 

When you started out in the music business world, what do you wish you had known? I would love to know if you could share some tips!

 

Like you said, your music business is a lot more fun than meeting plumbers at rental villas!Smiley Wink... So, having your insights into this would be interesting.
