Keeping a Positive and Confident Attitude
- Starting your own business is a great challenge. You need to have ultimate confidence in yourself and your ideas to be successful. This is important when you decide to take risks and get started, but even more important when you sell your ideas to others. You must show confidence when you ask people for money and talk to potential customers about the quality of your product or service. If you're confident, direct, and clear, you and your business will get noticed.
- A positive attitude will also help when you're dealing with people who aren't as excited about your business as you are. Friends and family may not understand why you want to take this risk in the first place. Potential funders will ask tough questions to find out if your business is a good investment. And customers will usually only tell you what you're doing wrong.
- Your ability to show people how confident you are and how good your business can be makes all the difference.
