We Are All Brave

As we started this adventure-venture we often heard "you are so brave!" While we appreciate the thought, we have not been building this business alone. Denver is a great city for small businesses and there is support and direction around many corners. We are mindful as a start-up to ask other business experts for one piece of advice from their experience. Not surprisingly, every person shared something new. 

Below are some of the words of wisdom we have collected: 
  • Ask. People are willing to offer you more than you would think.
  • Make mistakes. It’s going to happen. Just try not to make the same mistake twice.
  • Trust your gut. It’s rarely wrong. 
  • Don’t price yourself too low. It will impact you in the long run so price what you're worth.
  • Be organized. Don’t make the client manage your work.
  • Sleep on it.
  • Do what you say you are going to do and follow up.
  • You don’t know enough now to worry about the things you need to.
  • Monitor and be mindful of your reputation.
  • Now is the time, take the breaks when you need them to think through plans and ideas.
We hope you find these helpful for your business or work. We are all brave when we work together.
