Your startup is a reflection of your vision and your passion. You need to know your strengths and weaknesses to establish and manage a business. You should constantly keep learning in order to grow.

With innumerable opportunities in the market, some businesses are less profitable than others. Your business should be something that you really believe in, something that you have a passion for, and which also, at the same time, generates good returns.

You, singlehandedly cannot do everything. It is crucial to have a team that has the same vision as you- people you can rely on. Your employees, investors everyone should share your passion for the company if you want everyone to give their best.
