A surviving startup recognises there is no perfect way through the maze of entrepreneurship. False dawns and one way streets are inevitable, but left unchecked can lead to deep frustration, confusion and for many an early, unplanned exit.
By listening to this special episode, you'll discover how to think, plan and navigate through the maze. You'll also get to know key reference sources and guides that you will treasure when working out and through the early days of starting any business.
Tips and ideas for business forecasting, planning, research and ideas are shared and thought provoking true stories support key points throughout this podcast.
