2. Don't spend too much money

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

Keep in mind that the best laid plans are often the most arrogant. You don't know for sure how to best serve the market until you are actually to the field-serving customers:

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.

Yes, it may be stressful and time-consuming to do a lot of extra work yourself, but it will pay in the long run. You will understand the project in an way.
