Here are some helpful tips and words of wisdom to all who have their eyes on building their own business. An entrepreneur must have drive and passion to succeed. An entrepreneur must be willing to take intelligent risks. Many businesses get stalled in this as they are so against risk-taking or incurring new costs so as to maintain that security blanket against failure. While many of them may not fail, many also do not get much traction and leverage to grow as well. However, taking risks have to be tempered with sound judgment to know which risks have a higher chances of success , versus which risk is simple fallacy. It is difficult to differentiate these risks, and sometimes you just have to learn from failure and mistakes. Also, as an entrepreneur you must be able to nurture talent. An entrepreneur must learn how to manage, motivate, and inspire their team to do their best. The lesson that I learnt is that there needs to be a balance.
