5 tips before starting a startup
Thinking back to the time before Startupbnb was even launched, millions of questions and concerns washed through our heads and that’s totally normal of course but
- It’s honestly okay to fail.
We’ve all heard numerous sayings about how failing is actually a good thing and all, well to be honest they surely got it right. The fear of failure stops us from even giving it a shot, I mean the max that could happen is that it won’t work out right? And what good would that do to us? Simple, we learn. We learn through our mistakes and realize all that shouldn’t have been done and we forbid ourselves to do it again.
- Baby steps
I know we all plan big and want to achieve the most out of everything, but always keep in mind that everything starts small. It takes an immense amount of time and struggle to grow and reach the level of success. Just be patient and take it easy.
This is a key element to encourage yourself and your team throughout the process. Always surround yourself with positive minded people who will do nothing but constantly motivate and inspire you. This is a real booster for sure, the more the merrier, because we often find ourselves with the sort of people who aren’t just unsure about your plans and ambitions but are unsure about their own lives. Make sure to stay away from them because a little bit of negativity can really tear us down and make us rethink our plans.
Note: never rethink plans; it’ll make you doubtful.
- Back up
Keeping back up plans surely does not mean you’re not going to make it; it’s just a smart precaution that you’re taking. Going with the flow may sound nice and easy but it’s important to be a little realistic too. You can’t be stuck on one project for the rest of your life now can you? It’s totally normal to keep in mind another plan just in case if things don’t turn out the way you planned them, that way not only an ample amount of time will be saved but after a certain amount of disappointment you’ll eventually accept it and keep busy in the new project rather than figuring out from scratch what to do now.
- GO FOR IT!
The last but not the least, just go for it. Quit playing it so safe, try out different things in life otherwise you’ll always regret the “could’ve should’ve would’ve” in life and that’s a terrifying feeling. You’ll never know what is yet to come if you never take a step for it. So just don’t think much and have a little faith in yourself.
