One of the great things about the world wide web is that it makes starting an online business accessible and affordable for more people. The downside is that many people jump in and start an online business without a clear plan or idea of what they want to do. Unfortunately, this means that it is fairly common for online businesses to fail but the good news is: there are steps you can take to avoid becoming another failed online entrepreneur.
I share the top ten reasons businesses fail and share actionable advice on how you can avoid those mistakes. I share the four criteria a business idea needs to meet before you move ahead and begin implementing your idea and explain why a business model and business plan are crucial to your success. I also explain why I believe your mindset is the most important piece of the puzzle.“If you run a business without measuring anything, it is unlikely to be successful because what we measure, we focus on.” - Sigrun
