Otherwise procrastination will eat your spirit bit by bit until all you have left is gloom and financial panic.

The main reason why the first few years are so critical is because new entrepreneurs have lots to learn. There are so many things that they don’t know yet. Smart entrepreneurs should seek out and list everything that they don’t understand and do everything they can to gain knowledge about them.

One important thing to remember is you must have a business plan. Ignorant businessman wanna-be will ignore the importance of a business plan even though they have been told just how important it is. Since you are a smart entrepreneur you must have a business plan ready before you hit the business field. A short and concise plan written in several easy-to-understand sentences is good enough for a start. The plan should sort out all the things that you see as important for your business. For example from where will the money come from, how will you spend it and how will your business grow. Keep it simple and doable. A complex plan will only make it easier for procrastination to kick back at you.

And finally you need to understand the importance of pressing-on and moving forward. Most start-up businesses fail in their first year for numerous reasons. That is a fact but you don’t want to be one of them. When the going gets tough you must set your mind that you are tough enough to get going.
