1. Keep Ideas Secret, Otherwise Someone Will Steal The Ideas
They wont
They will tell you what they think
They will introduce you to potential partners/investors/ customers
It's not what you know, it's who you know that matters
Pitch everyone!

2. Don’t Seek Mentors
Find out what other people have done to achieve success
Most entrepreneurs are willing to help out a fellow business owner

3. Don’t Get Involved in the Community
Opportunities are generated by connecting with other entrepreneurs
You will get new business opportunities, partners, investment, media attention, ideas, advices
You will get resources that would take you years of trial and error to figure out

4. Rushing into Funding
Starting a business is all about survival
Planning always leads to more intelligent use of funds
Build a profitable and sustainable business model

5. Doing It All Alone, Not Hiring Right Away
Find out who can be brought on board to help you
Spend your time working on the business and not in the business
