The 50 Dos and Don'ts of Running Your Own Business


When you run your own small business there are oodles of people who'll want to offer you well meaning advice. There are also books and websites a-plenty packed full of information. So needless to say it can all be very overwhelming! In my opinion though, these are the 50 definitive dos and don'ts to follow if you're an entrepreneur.

41. DO be inspired by people outside your industry and niche.
42. DO keep things simple.
43. DON'T underestimate the power of an incredible testimonial.
44. DO make customer service a priority.
45. DO ask for honest feedback from people you trust.
46. DON'T worry too much about the future. Focus on what you're doing now.
47. DO strive to be the very best at what you do.
48. DO send thank you cards.
49. DO under-promise and over-deliver.
50. DON'T give up. You can do this!

Have I missed anything? I'd love to hear about your small business dos and don'ts in the comments!
