You may never feel like it’s the right time to launch your new business venture, so just go ahead and do it right now. Even if you feel like you aren’t fully prepared, sometimes you just have to jump in.
Barbara Corcoran of Shark Tank advises aspiring business owners to learn as you go. She says there’s no better way to gain real-world experience than “throwing yourself out there.” When you can’t afford to fail and when everything seems to be going wrong, you may get angry and then feel motivated to solve the problem.
Taking risks in your youth means that even if you fail, you still have time to start again. Corcoran’s advice works for older people, as well. Even if you’ve wasted time or put off starting, getting your business off the ground as soon as possible prevents you from making up new reasons to delay.
There are many business skills you simply can’t learn by reading or watching. Don’t waste time. If you have a great idea or dream of owning and operating your own business, there are many resources available to help you get started. When you dive into business ownership, you are forced to think of solutions to problems that come up. That’s the best way to learn according to Corcoran.
