Attending the 2014 Las Vegas startup business conference was one of the things that I will never regret doing in my professional life. I was still a new college graduate when I decided to purchase a registration ticket for the said event. The truth is that I wanted to become a successful woman in the future. I do not want to become an employee but rather the boss of my own company.
With this kind of mindset, I showed up for the conference and met several people who wanted the same thing that I want. I got lucky to meet individuals who inspired me to follow my dreams and never to allow other people to bring me down. During the said conference, I also learned a lot of tips from the speakers. Below are some of them:
- Starting a business requires time and effort, which is why there is a necessity to come up with a feasibility study first. Success does not happen overnight.
- Setbacks or failures are only normal, especially for someone who is still new to the industry. Sometimes, taking risks is part of the game.
- Choosing a business partner is not an easy thing to do. It requires a deliberate process to follow to ensure that nothing will go wrong.
- The total amount of capital available must be determined before choosing to build a start-up company.
I used all the things I learned from the conference for my gain. I reminded myself that I have the potential to succeed. It was not an easy thing for me to decide on building my firm. There were many doubts and questions in the beginning, but I survived all of them. It has become possible because of the support of the important people in my life.
