Know The Product

Even if you have never tried a product, dig for every bit of information you can find about it. Gather details of performance, quality, sizes, etc. from someone who has used it and get to know it as if you had actually tried it.

Know the product because if you know what you are selling, it will determine how you sell it. 

Market Your Business

Marketing your business takes some investment in patience. 

You create, communicate and deliver your 'product' but remember to be consistent in your marketing. 

Fact is, many persons will not consider your pitch until after their 7th or 8th ‘look’.

Get Used to Networking

Don't try to do it all alone. Get used to networking and talking to people. Someone you talk to today may not get involved in your business right then, but they may do so later. Or they may know someone who may know someone.....

Best Time to Start Your Business

The best time to start your business is while you are still gainfully employed.

It gives you the chance to accumulate the capital, experience, clientele and references you need to build your brand, your portfolio, your reputation.
