What business advice would you give to a youngester looking to start on the path of building a business.
Here's what I'd say...
Use debt to build things, not buy things. A small amount of low-interest debt is a really good way to build (or test) a business.
It's OK to take a short-term low-paid job if you are learning something. When I left uni, I worked for five years at a startup. I was employee number two, growing from zero to three million turnover. The money was not great, but I learned so many essential lessons about building a business.
Understand that your ideas are worth money. I remember realizing that if I needed to make more money, I could just come up with a new idea. Yeah, not all ideas work, but understanding that I was self-sufficient was liberating.
Know that you can live on very little money with no family and no commitments when you are young. This will change! Families and mortgages are expensive.
