You’ve been thinking about starting your own business, and you’re convinced that entrepreneurship is life for you. But before you dive into it headfirst, there are a few things you need to know.
You’re going to hit some bumps in the road – and, unfortunately, sometimes those bumps will be difficult ones. That’s why this post should serve as your warning that not everything goes smoothly when being an entrepreneur, but it can also go better than anything else!
In this post, I’m going to talk about the most difficult situations that any entrepreneur can face. And while these are not easy subjects to discuss – they’re also unavoidable and necessary to address if you want your new company to succeed!
So let’s get into it:
Lack of funds is one way or another a certainty for all entrepreneurs (even successful ones!). This is tough because when money starts getting tight, there aren’t many places people can turn for help without some kind of down payment or collateral.
It often means turning to family members and friends who might be in less than ideal financial positions as well. One solution here would be nonprofit organizations like Microloan Foundation which offer grants and loans with flexible terms.
