How to be Rock Steady in Business!

 

Will the real entrepreneurs please stand up? You can be rock steady in business! We have all heard about the failure rate of start-ups but I want you to be one of the ones who succeed! Those of us who will recognise some features and/or qualities we all have in common when we examine How to be Rock Steady in Business:

You do however need a good sense of self and robustness to carry you through the more challenging times ( which could go on for quite a while)  which is why you need to pay attention to the other points above!

Tough times

 

Finally… be fair to yourself in evaluating whether you think you have what it takes! Being self-employed is really not for everyone, sometimes we just need to be happy with our 9-5. Especially as we climb out of the recession. But not me! Why? Because…
