Make Mistakes -But
Learn from Them!
© Terri Seymour
If you are thinking
about or have already started your own business, you probably know
that you will make
mistakes. Don't let this dissuade you from your dreams or your passion.
We have all made them
and will make more - no matter how experienced or how good we are
at our business.
The difference between
a good mistake and a bad mistake is whether or not you have learned
Take some time to
go over your mistake -
Why was it a mistake?
What can I do to prevent this type of mistake again?
How can I rectify this mistake? What have I learned from this mistake?
How can I do this better next time?
I have made several
mistakes over the years, especially when I was first starting out.
I made sure I realized
the mistake, learned from the mistake and became stronger and more
determined because of the mistake.
Some things you can
do, however, to help reduce the number of mistakes you make are:
Research - Learn
as much as you can about starting and running your own business. You
do not want to
go blindly into the business world.
Keep Learning - Don't
think that your initial research will hold you over forever. The business
constantly changing and you need to keep up with those changes.
When in Doubt, Find
Out - You cannot guess your way to a successful business. When you
about something, read up on it, research and research some more.
Network - Get involved
with message boards, email discussion groups and other networking
Learn from others who have made mistakes and have experienced what
you are starting to experience. By
learning from the mistakes of others, you can greatly reduce the number
of mistakes you make. ;-)
Experiment - Try different things until you find what is best for
you and your business. Do not let yourself
be pressured into doing things you know or "feel" are wrong.
I hope this article
confirms your belief that we all make mistakes and it is not the end
of the world. Just
remember to learn from them, grow from them and become stronger from
