The biggest decision of your life is deciding about your future. You have to put a lot of thought into this life-changing decision. However, the main struggle starts after you take this big decision. Whether you decide to go for a job or business, it is going to be difficult.
However, if you are an aspiring entrepreneur, then here are some tips for you shared by Ms. Sukriti Dugal, Founder, ICRI Online learning platform.
Don’t Be Afraid To Fail
Ms. Sukriti Dugal, says, “I think that would be my foremost advice. Women are psychologically more afraid of being unprepared or failing than men so it is very critical for them to give this fear up if they seek to make a name for themselves as an entrepreneur as the field is full of challenges and failures. Just by remaining confident and positive, you can reach heights as an entrepreneur. The key is to keep learning and not give up in the face of setbacks.”
Don’t Be A Victim Of Social Expectations
We live in a society where women are still stereotyped as the ones who are meant to stay at home and put all their attention on their family, it is often looked down upon for them to venture out and establish a career for themselves. But with self-confidence and will to win, you can do it all.
You don’t have to fall for all these societal expectations that have been going on since ancient times. It is best to go on your own without worrying about anyone else and you’ll surely achieve success.
Prepare For Financial Challenges
The main problem with most startups is the problem of cash flow. Remember you are a startup, therefore, you need to keep your finances in a check. Your finances are the main thing for a successful business and keep in mind that you will have to see bad times and you need to be prepared well in advance for those times.
Don’t Do Everything Yourself
Ms. Sukriti Dugal says, “Another important advice I would like to share is to not be adamant on doing everything by yourself. It is easy to seek perfection in all jobs and to want to do everything by yourself but in the long run it can become overwhelming and can lead to burnout. Being an entrepreneur, you always have to be present and active so you must avoid burning out like this. Trust your workers to do the best and guide them as and when but learn to delegate positively.”
Never Stop Learning
Starting your own business means that you are constantly learning new things and growing. This will enrich your physical as well as mental skills.
You should always be on the lookout to learn from every person. You can join new courses, go for online learning processes, self-learning methods, etc. No matter what you learn, it will definitely be beneficial for you in some way or the other.
Ms. Sukriti Dugal says, “I think that would be my prime suggestions for all entrepreneurial aspirants among the womenfolk. Rest I wish them the best of luck and assure them that the best times are right around the corner.”
