You can prevent the early failure of your small business by following these five points. Manage your time properly to ensure you are attending to all important aspects of your business. Speak with someone regularly whose advice you trust. Outsource activities that you cannot feasibly perform as well as if you let other professionals handle it. Focus on what you are good at and leave the rest to others. Don’t offer too broad of a service. Narrow in on what you can specifically provide well. Create time to think and relax.
