We are definitely living in the age of the start-up- it seems that everyone is developing an app or starting a business from their basement, hoping to be the next Facebook or Amazon. Start-ups are so oversaturated, with a full 90% failing before they get off the ground, that telling people you're an entrepreneur is more likely to elicit eye-rolls instead of interest. However, without entrepreneurs making waves despite the challenges, our world would be devoid of smartphones, social media, streaming video, and many other every day amenities that you would sorely miss!
Many fail at launching successful businesses, but that doesn't deter budding entrepreneurs from pursuing their dreams. And, countless people fail their first (or second, or third) try and yet do it over and over again. While nothing can guarantee success in the cutthroat world of start-up entrepreneurship, keeping a few vital tips in mind can certainly give you a leg up on your less-prepared competition.
