Episode Summary –

Why do most start-ups struggle in their early stages? What’s the most important ingredient for the success of a company? Is it the entrepreneur’s mindset, passion, business marketing, team, or systems? What can you do to start, grow and scale your business without making mistakes?

Entrepreneurship can be a challenging journey, and to succeed, there are three key things you must have and do. First, have a deep understanding of your purpose for starting the business. This purpose will serve as your source of motivation during difficult times and help guide decisions and policies that you make for the company.

Second, having people in your life who can mentor and encourage you is important. Having someone in your circle who has experienced the same journey as you is invaluable. They will be able to advise on the mistakes to avoid and show how certain decisions can affect the growth of a business. This will make the learning process smoother and quicker.

Lastly, revisiting your original goals regularly helps you understand the success level your business has achieved.
