Starting and running your own business can be a risky venture, to say the least. Not only will you be devoting a lot of time and energy to it, but you may also be sinking every cent you have into it with the hopes that everything will turn out right. If you’ve never run a business before, you will probably feel completely out of your element, at least at the start.
Once you do get your business underway, and often even before you start, you will most likely get a ton of advice (often unsolicited) from your friends, your family, your associates and just about everybody you come across. Sometimes their advice is helpful but, more often than not, it’s just some rhetoric that you’ve probably heard a hundred times already.
