Ep. 84 10 Things I Wish I Knew Before Starting my Business

Are you thinking about starting your own business? Or maybe you’ve already taken the plunge and are in the early stages of running your own company. Either way, it’s a HUGE step – but it’s also an exciting one with lots to learn! And if you’re in a heavily regulated industry like the wedding industry, there can be even more hurdles to jump through. But despite all the challenges, starting a small business is one of the most rewarding things you can do.

In today’s episode, I’m sharing my top 10 tips I wish I knew before I became an entrepreneur. There’s no shortage of advice out there on how to get started, but I think it’s always helpful to hear from someone who’s already been through the process and can share what they’ve learned (and are still learning!). These tips are meant to help you hit the ground running with your business and avoid some of the common pitfalls that new business owners face.

So whether you’re just thinking about starting your business or side hustle, or you’re already in the thick of it, I hope you find these tips helpful!

In this episode, we cover:

  • The best way to communicate the crucial details of your business to your customers
  • Why you don’t need to continually reinvent yourself
