What I wish I’d known when I started my business in 1991
On the last Friday in March 1991, I walked out of my secure, full-time, IT job (even then I had a penchant for not working Fridays!). I remember it vividly like it was yesterday, Chesney Hawkes’ ‘The One and Only’ was at the top of the charts.
Just three days later, on the Monday, I set up my first business using a little bit of office space lent to me by some friends. Like so many people I have met since, who have bravely ventured out into the world of self-employment (no one really called themselves entrepreneurs back then), I simply thought I could do it better than the guy I was working for.
I’m often asked:
“Tell me Martin, what advice would you wish you’d been given when you started out?”
Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but there are two key pieces of advice I’d give any entrepreneur – whatever stage their business is at. And these are both based on a common thread from 50+ industries I have worked with over the last 5 years.
