Do I Have Experience To Start A Business?

Look at the experiences that you have learned in other jobs or your current career. How do those skills transfer to your new career path?

Hire people who can do things you aren’t good at. I once had dinner with another business owner who told me that once he embraced his strengths and outsourced his weaknesses, it allowed his business to grow and thrive to a international brand.
