Being part of a startup can be terrifying and exhilarating all at the same time. The beauty
of being part of one is that you quickly learn from what you do best and what you can do to
improve. Thankfully, there is always room for improvement. So, how do you build a successful
start up?


Your leadership team will make or break the success of a startup! You don’t need to know
everything about business to be a great leader at a startup. It is important to have a leader who
not only understands and casts a vision for the business, but they are the example that others
follow. A leader needs to be determined and have an incredible work ethic in order to direct and
lead those in their team.


Always remember the audience and the consumer you aren’t thinking about at the forefront!
Tackle an audience that doesn’t speak English. Chances are your competitor isn’t thinking to
target them so this is an opportunity for you to grow your business and gain new clients. If you
don’t have someone that can translate your services there are many translation services that you
would be able to use!


A startup may begin with one person, but as your business grows a team needs to be put in place
to support it. How do you build your team? Surround yourself with people that fall in line with
your vision and want to see it come to fruition! It is absolutely imperative to think about the
culture of your business and who can make it better in your hiring process.


As your business continues to grow, seek advice and guidance from those that have already
succeeded at what you are doing! Don’t hesitate to network and talk to those that are where you
want your business to be!


Create a company culture that you and your team absolutely loves! This will help drive your
vision and it will help the team know exactly where they are going.
