Startup Success: The 7 Most Common Mistakes New Entrepreneurial Leaders Make

Originally posted on Linked 2 Leadership:

Entrepreneurs bring a lot of self-confidence to the table. Most abandon careers, often lucrative careers, at which they excelled to become their own bosses. This is generally a boon to their young business.

However, their high confidence levels and competence at their previous careers can lead them to make a number of common, avoidable mistakes.

Here are a few to watch out for.

The 7 Most Common Mistakes New Entrepreneurial Leaders Make

1) Not Delegating

Many, if not most, entrepreneurial ventures start out as one-person operations. The entrepreneur does everything, from bookkeeping and marketing to product development.

What is a Startup?

According to Wikipedia, “A startup company or startup is a company, a partnership or temporary organization designed to search for a repeatable and scalable business model.”

Another definition by Co-CEO of Warby Parker says, “A startup is a company working to solve a problem where the solution is not obvious and success is not guaranteed.”

For me, a Startup is a company, that is confused about:

  • What its product is.
  • Who its customers are.
  • How to make money.

As soon as it figures out all 3 things, it ceases being a startup and becomes a real business. Except most times, that doesn’t happen.

When does Human enterprise cease to exist as a startup?

The answer is – When one realizes that there is no substitute to Hard Work! (though you could ease it a little by doing Smart Work…) But achieving success is not as easy as…

into who I was.

Fast forward a few years and the realisation comes that what I thought I knew, I didn’t really know

And what I was sure I understood was not as deep as I had thought it was at the time

Why ?

Because when we reflect,

We have the benefit of a few more years experience

Now I can see 50 from here, and I am embracing my own past ages

The Ages when I was soooo clever (oh dear)

As a medium I am incredibly blessed – I have the benefit of the experience that is brought through from those past over
