I was excited to join the world of Entrepreneurship. I had quit my job, gone to fashion school and like every other creative, I was determined to turn my passion to profit. But nothing prepared me for the real world of business!
In no time, I was frustrated! I cried my eyes out running a business that left me constantly under pressure. I was out of cash and literally spent all I earned on the business with nothing to show for it. It was a real rat race!
One thing I can tell you, entrepreneurship is not easy! You have to keep working at it and slowly things will make sense. Although it can be an 'exciting' journey (because frankly I could do without that excitement) but it can also be a long and lonely journey. You pretty much lose track of everything in a bid to make things work. You are so consumed with the business that you spend less time with friends, family and you become a shadow of yourself - if you allow yourself to!
A lot of the things I learnt the hard way, I wish someone warned me about it. Nothing you learn in school prepares you for the real thing.
So this is me taking a trip down memory lane. I have made TONS of mistakes that if I had to write them all, I would fill an encyclopaedia so it was tough to pick these 7 but here they are. It's a really short read - just 1 page per mistake!
Here's hoping you will learn from my experience and avoid making the same mistakes I made.
