I know how difficult it can be getting started building a business in the early days. You don’t really know what you are doing or where to go for help. It is a challenge all new business owners have, no matter your education. You are a beginner in the real world. No textbook is going to help you learn everything at once. You need help running your small business. Read business books to quickly learn lessons from experienced owners.
It is always, always better to learn as much as you can from people who have already done what you want to do.
So don’t be afraid to pick up the phone or go visit another business owner. Don’t sell them just ask for their help and to learn a little from them. They are the experts and most will be happy to share some information with you. Ask questions.
Very few people acknowledge what that business owner knows and what they went through getting started. Most are thrilled you want information and advice from them. Make them feel special and they will share all kinds of valuable advice for a rookie business owner.
