Thousands of new business ideas are being dreamt up and pitched every day and you might have come up with one of the very best! However, not everyone will share your enthusiasm and you’ll need to be prepared to work harder than ever before to turn your idea into a reality.
One of the most important bits of advice is to surround yourself with great people you can trust. Focusing on this one aspect from the outset will give you the best possible chance of success.
Be selective and don’t just take on the first person that shows some interest. They need to understand the vision, be (nearly) as dedicated as you are and be willing to put the hard work in. It’s a cliché but any business is only as good as the team.
Building a successful business is all about teamwork as however many hours you work you can’t do it all. It’s important to have a range of skillsets and experience with each team member adding different things into the mix.
It can be hard to let go and delegate especially when you know every aspect of your business but as you grow it’s important to let others take over responsibilities so you can focus on the bigger picture.
Realistically Flubit.com wouldn’t be where it is today if it wasn't for the awesome people that make up the now 65 strong Flubit team as well as our advisors and investors.
We’ve created a unique, innovative online shopping service that our customers love using time and again. We’re disrupting the status quo when it comes to eCommerce and genuinely get a kick out of saving our customers money on pretty much anything they want to buy online.
Starting Flubit with my cofounder Adel Louertatani was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. It’s been incredibly hard work, but also very rewarding and I’ve enjoyed every minute.
There is no rulebook for starting a new company and no set of guidelines to follow and there’s also never the perfect time to take that leap of faith and get started. So my advice is just to go for it and see what happens. If you’ve got a great idea and are convinced it will work then not doing it will give you a greater sense of regret than if you try and fail.
