research skills you should consider hiring a research firm to help you with it. During your research, you should identify your customers
and how their money spending habits. Ignoring Your Competition
Unless you are coming up with a completely new product or service, you will definitely have some competition. To be successful you should keep a close eye on your competitors and see what they are doing. To be a step ahead, you

market your business before you even open it. Once you have identified your customers you
should visit them and talk to them about the store that you are planning to open soon.


Doing It Alone

While you are an entrepreneur and very independent, you shouldn't try to run your business alone-you should surround yourself with the people who will provide you with
support and advice. These people can be accomplished businessmen or close and supportive family members that will guild and give you insight. Although, you might be having limited resources, it's wise sometimes to hire people to do the work that may take you many hours of your time. For example, if you find it hard to do bookkeeping you should consider hiring a bookkeeper to do the work for you. This way you will grow faster as you will be
concentrating at the things that are of great importance to the success of your business.

These are the pot-holes that you need to avoid when starting your business. For faster growth
