Ready to start your own business? Before you leap from the diving board head first into the deep end, test the water for a little bit.
- What do you do for a living right now? How can you incorporate aspects from that business into your personal venture? Can you learn more about budgeting, software, marketing, or social media? Maybe you just want to learn the things that you shouldn’t do.
- When it’s time to go, don’t tell all your co-workers to kiss you where the sun doesn’t shine. You never know when you may need to use some of their skills in the future.
