The vast majority of business start-ups that succeed do so on a limited budget, and without the benefit of venture capital funding.

When launching a new business or product, figure out how you can get to the breakeven, point fastest. This kind of revenue planning will force you to pay closer attention to the market.

5. Forget about Hiring An Expert, you are it

Successful entrepreneurs don't have experts to run their businesses. They figure it out for themselves. When t comes to making your new product or project work, reply on nobody that yourself to make sure it gets done right.
