There are hundreds of blog posts and help guides regarding how to be successful with a start-up business.
From my experience there are three things to get right.
1 – Design your business model. How are you going earn money, who are your customers and what are you selling.
2 – Start earning money as soon as possible. Don’t wait get the business model in place and see if it earns you money. Even if you are only earning a few pounds a week just make sure that the business model works.
3 – Think about the medium and long-term but manage the short term. Decide on where you want to be and how you are going get there but at the same time manage today’s customers, clients and supply chain.
