More Advice for New Entrepreneurs from Fellow Entrepreneurs 1I love helping other business owners find their way to success. And I know there are many other entrepreneurs out there who also want to be supportive of their fellow entrepreneurs. So, a few months ago I asked members of my Facebook group, Women’s Entrepreneur Network, what advice they would give to new entrepreneurs. The response was overwhelming.

These wonderful women, and men, have so much to share and are so willing to help other entrepreneurs. I couldn’t let all this wonderful advice be limited to those in my Facebook group, so I decided to share their entrepreneurial tips in my blog and newsletter.

Here are a handful of their valuable responses:

Esmeralda Perez: You have to do what you love and love what you do. Passion and be coachable!! 

Diana Chan-Warren: Make sure you have a bit of “cushion money” before starting on the path to entrepreneurship.

Virginia Phillips: It is your business, but you can’t go it alone. Network, make alliances, find mentors, build a support system, and ask everyone questions.

More Advice for New Entrepreneurs from Fellow Entrepreneurs 2Nikki Tobias: Just know that it will likely take longer than you think it will… longer to have clients, longer to make money, longer to come up with a name or logo — just longer. It isn’t a bad thing, just something to plan for.

Revonah Hill-Holloway: Take your time building your business. Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day.

Brianna Feltych-Düren: Always ask for advice. Do not feel like critique is meant to hurt you in any way. You will not succeed right away, but never give up. Hard work and the love you put into yourself and your business will pay off.

Adrien Blackwell: If the first business doesn’t succeed, try, try, again. Most self made millionaires fail with their first two businesses before making it. This is just practice. The practice you need to be successful.

More Advice for New Entrepreneurs from Fellow Entrepreneurs 3Krissi Copper: Just when you feel like giving up, keep going. You’re almost there.

Jessica Granish: Communication is key: Need I say more? All great relationships, be it professionally or personally, start with great communication. Creating expectations and sharing your communication style is super important. When starting your business you will want to set those expectations with your clients, your vendors and your team. Communication is a foundational piece to building authenticity and trust as you grow and expand in your zone of genius.

Chris Butler Yates: Patience and Persistence.  

Joanna Sanchez: Stop striving and surrender.

Mrs. Lakeasha Jackson: My advice is: When deciding to brand your business and yourself, research EXACTLY what you want to do and WHO you want to work with. Although we may just want cashflow, you want to be sure you are working with your ideal client and not overworking yourself and underserving your client. Do your self and your client due diligence in putting the best foot forward in the beginning and actually taking the time to learn your industry before jumping in.

More Advice for New Entrepreneurs from Fellow Entrepreneurs 4Deanne Williams: 5-R’s of Success: Being Relatable to the community you plan to service is a necessity. Being Reasonable when setting your financial expectations towards the services you plan to offer within that targeted community is wise. Being Reliable towards those services and products is a must. If you can manage being Relatable, Reasonable, and Reliable your business will no doubt be guaranteed to become Remarkably-Rememberable to all. ~ Deanne ©2016.08

Celesti’ne Chumo: Don’t overwhelm yourself, do a little thing everyday that leads to your goal.

Stacie Jones: Don’t ever give up. If something isn’t working, don’t just stop all together, make little tweaks until you start seeing results. Sometimes it could be as simple as rewording your copy or revamping your pics that turns it around. It’s all about fine tuning your message and figuring out who your ideal customer/client is.

Ella Rose: Pace yourself. Building momentum can be exciting, but it’s easy to take on too much when you’ve never done this before.

Vickie Gould: Be consistent and confident in your message.

Star Raya Burke: Be accepting of your mistakes because that’s how you will learn and teach yourself to be a great success story.

More Advice for New Entrepreneurs from Fellow Entrepreneurs 5Adriana Summers: Surround yourself with smart passionate people to guide you.

Deanna Shankle: Know your vision and your market. Do your research and take small steps to reach the bigger goal. Remember you have a life outside of your business, enjoy it and don’t neglect it. Your business is a representation of you, so project it the way you want to be seen. Learn from your mistakes and don’t ever give up.

If you missed my previous post, here are some of the many awesome responses that I included in my first post on entrepreneurial advice.

I hope you’ve found these entrepreneurial insights enlightening.

Stay tuned for more!
