Starting your own venture is a huge responsibility and if you’ve taken all the required steps to make sure that your business grows well and you get all the exposure that you need then you also need to take precautions to ensure that you do not make decisions that could lead to the failure of the company. One of the major mistakes that most startups make is to try and grow too fast and hire multiple employees.
While it feels good to have a large team you need to understand that you also need to pay them and when you can get the work done with a smaller team you should not hire more people unless absolutely necessary. Also, you need to see how valuable an employee is to the company is before you decide to get them on board. It is for this reason that most of the top business people will advise you to not mix work and personal life since you will not have the heart to be rude or fire your friends and family.
There are a number of people that start their business with doubts in their mind. These doubts usually creep in when you have others speaking ill of your business. While your family members will always show you unconditional support, there will be a few friends that will be jealous of your success and try to put you down. The key to starting your business on a right note is surrounding yourself with the right people. This does not mean that you need yes men around you however you need to have people that speak sense and do not try and put you down at every opportunity. This will help you to make tough decisions with ease.
