1) This is an oldie but a goodie-never let anyone tell you you can't! There will always be "haters" or people who doubt you but you know yourself the best...and if you are determined you can do it! If it doesn't work out one way try it another.
2) Make a plan! When I first started I thought well I will just do this and this and voila! Well...it doesn't work that way. Be organized when starting a business get a note book/planner and write everything down.
3) Be creative. Think outside of the box. I like to write down every idea that comes into my head and weed out the "bad" ones later. I was eating cheesecake one day and BAM an idea to make a raspberry cheesecake soap. You never know.
Here are some other tips for success that were given to me for this post...(After check out their awesome sites!)
It's important to remember the fortune is in the follow up. Many people need to be contacted a few times before they are ready to make a decision - when you get a 'no' think of it as a 'not now' and ask to follow up in a little while. You never know how many of your no's will become yes's!
