Beginnings are fraught with many challenges. If it doesn't kill you, it will make you stronger. Learn about the business as much as you can before starting. Always allocate necessary money for operating the business. And just hang in there!

Remember also what Francis Bacon said: "If a man will begin with certainties, he shall end in doubts, but if he will be content to begin with doubts he shall end in certainties."

“First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win.” ~Mahatma Gandhi
