Tips

Find a partner...

If you can find someone who has a skill set different from yours, you trust and also get along with well - having a partner always makes starting and running a business at least 50% easier. Conversely, if you can't convince anyone to join you as a partner in a new business it may be an indication that your idea needs some work.
