  1. I really appreciate the kind words. Thanks for sharing that valuable information. Its good someone is promoting quality content. Nice explanation about these important things for consider you to start a business.

  2. I really enjoy all the valuable information provided on this website. I’m pushing full steam ahead with my Call Center Outsourcing business and I’ve printed and bookmarked a lot of this information for reference.

  3. These are really great tips and being a recent entrepreneur, I can really relate them to myself and my business.
    Rigorous market and product or service research and existing competition analysis is very much important before starting up any business. Building a great product or offering a really useful service with a strong business model is another crucial part and finally the marketing. I feel the toughest part for a startup is hiring quality resources and retain them.
    Starting up a new business needs tremendous strong nerve, risk taking ability, willingness to learn constantly and patience.
    Thanks for sharing these simple yet very important tips.

  4. Great video. I think having a backup plan after validating the business is super important. I love testing to make sure the product or new business I am launching will actually make money.

  5. Hello!

    The tips are absolutely correct. The 2 most important for me are: “Can I carry it through?” and “Am I sure in my idea?”.

    If I don’t think the idea is at least 80% proof, I don’t get to it. Awesome tips, though! Cheers!

  6. These are definitely some great tips that you should take into account before starting your own business, but in my opinion the vital advice is to have a “Plan B” in case something goes wrong. For example, one of my friends is about to invest in a man and van business, but he will not go for any loans from banks, friends and so on. He was working in USA for a couple of months and he and his girlfriend will invest only their funds in this enterprise. This is a decision I admire, because in the worst case scenario they will lose only the savings from the summer and then they could start a regular job, but at least they will know they took a shot. There will be no commitments to bank institutions, to friends etc. Anyway, my point was that even if you are really prepared and everything, just leave a small window.

  7. I had a simple plan for my business. It has three main steps – believe, be patient, celebrate. Just keep believing. Take risks! Don’t take them when you are not sure. You should become friend with your inner self. Wonderful video for starters. Thanks.

  8. Joel – the simplicity of this is brilliant, and very relevant. The important thing I considered is – what’s the emotional connection between my service and the customer? If there’s no emotion involved, the marketing will be that more difficult.

  9. Hi Joel,

    I think the best part of the video is the simplicity.

    Not many people can see the light at the end of the overwhelming tunnel of tasks, meetings and to-do-lists.

    He makes the process a lot easier and saves some people a lot of time and money

  10. These are great questions to consider when I am starting a business. What is the vision for my business is another thing to consider as well. I realized that people buy my “WHY” more than the “WHAT” and “HOW”. It is also the main reason why Apple is such a successful company because they emphasize on why.
