10 Lessons in 10 years of Business and Entrepreneurship

on January 24 at 05:23 PM
Hello, Business and Entrepreneurship friends!

Today is an extraordinary day for us because 10 years ago, this community was born, and we want to take advantage of this date to share a little of our history and the most important lessons we have learned in this time.



A brief history of Business and Entrepreneurship

It all started in 2008. Javier iaz, our founder, was in the third semester of the business administration career and felt a great passion for technology, business and education, so every time he met his friends, he started talking to them about all the fascinating things he was learning in college, however, they were not at all interested in those subjects.

One day, his younger brother, tired of hearing him talk and talk about business, looked at him straight ahead and said: "I'm not interested in what you're saying because I don't want to be an entrepreneur. Look for people who are interested in the topic and talk to them."

 
His brother's words rumbled in his head and motivated him to launch a new project. At that time, Javier had been reading about digital business and knew the world of blogging, and thought that creating a blog would be an excellent way to share his passion for technology, business, and education with other interested people.

Without knowing much about design, but with much enthusiasm to start writing, on December 10, 2008, the blog was ready, and the first article in the history of Business and Entrepreneurship was published.

Since then, we have published more than 13 thousand articles and more than 150 videos, all created with the firm purpose of sharing useful and practical information for entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs.

Next, we share 10 valuable entrepreneurship lessons that we have learned in these 10 years.

10 Lessons learned in 10 years of Business and Entrepreneurship

1. You will not always be motivated. It would help if you were disciplined

Doing things when we are excited and motivated is very easy. But, as an entrepreneur, you will not always be motivated. It doesn't matter how much you love what you do; there will be days when you don't want to do it. There will be days when you will not want to open your business, attend customers, or attend that meeting you scheduled. But, it is precisely in those days when you must show yourself how important your dream is. Nothing replaces the patience, discipline, and determination of an entrepreneur.

2. Surround yourself with people who inspire and retain you

Your personal and professional relationships dramatically influence your mentality and the results you get. Make sure you are surrounded by people who help you grow on an individual, financial, professional, intellectual, and spiritual level.

3. Obsess with the problem, not the idea

If you focus on the idea, you may fall into the error of launching products and services that customers do not want or need. Obsess with the problem, but be flexible with the ideas. Create solutions that make your customers' lives more comfortable and better. Here we share 11 lessons about how to create innovative products.

4. Great ventures arise from great teams

The vast majority of entrepreneurs are obsessed with finding a "great idea," mistakenly believing that if they find it, they will be assured of success. Worry more about building a great team . Ideas and products change all the time and moments of uncertainty will always be present, so it is vital to have talented, passionate and committed people in your team, ready to fight tirelessly on your side facing the challenges that the road imposes on them.

5. Learn fast from your mistakes

When innovating, many mistakes can be made in the process, which means that you must be prepared to learn from each error and continue experimenting and validating until you get products that have a real and significant impact on the lives of your customers.

6. Don't be obsessed with having many clients

Obsess with having very good customers, people who love what you are creating. As Paul Buchheit says: "It is better to make a few people really happy than many happy."

7. Prioritize and Focus

Generally, when entrepreneurs are developing new products, they begin to add all kinds of functionalities and features that occur to them in the process; what complicates, makes expensive, and delays the exit of the product to the market. When you are starting, you have to do only one thing and do it well, better than anyone; and, make your customers love you for it. Find a small part of the problem that you can focus on and add value, so you can build a Minimum Viable Product to start interacting with potential customers and receive feedback that helps you continue the product development process.

8. Before seeking financing, look for clients

If you have not yet validated your business model, you will end up making inefficient use of the resources you get. The best way to finance the start of your company is with real sales.

9. Work smart

You must organize your time and manage your energy. Otherwise, you will wear out without seeing progress in your business. Look at these 15 Keys to work intelligently and achieve better results.

10. Learn constantly

Entrepreneurship is an adventure of constant learning in which every day there is something new to learn. Attend conferences, seminars, read books, travel, and life experiences that allow you to expand your worldview. It is always an excellent opportunity to learn something new, but remember to also put into practice what you learn. Here we explain everything an entrepreneur needs to learn.

We hope that these 10 lessons help you in your process as an entrepreneur, and always remember that entrepreneurship is a path full of uncertainty in which nothing is certain, but everything is possible.
