10 Rules Young Businessmen Should Live By In Startups


With emerging startup culture being so rampant all over the world, many young entrepreneurs are not hesitating to build their ideas into a business vision.

It wouldn’t be surprising to say that they face a lot of setbacks during the process, but the end is more than worth it. Many young businesspeople start off quite motivated about their idea, but when they meet with obstacles and challenges in between, the energy tends to fumble a bit.

They start doubting their own business idea and give up too early leading to a failed business.

We bring you the ten golden rules which young businessmen should live by in their startups:

  1. Define Your Vision: It always helps to clearly define the outcome first. Be verbal about your vision and make it a company’s motto to keep the team members inspired. You cannot fire an arrow without a destination point is it not? Hence, before setting up a company, define your vision and give your goal a purpose.

  2. Do what You Like: You might encounter people telling you about market pressures, and the challenge to succumb to your principles in order to go ahead in the business ladder but in reality, that’s not necessary. Many entrepreneurs became successful by doing what they like- even if it doesn’t fit in a convention.

  3. Be a Listener: Being a young entrepreneur you would be carried away to enthusiastically tell about your ideas and explain how brilliant your concept is to your team and to the clients. But hang on, practice the art of listening because it would aid you to get more interesting ideas to improve the business.

  4. Patience is a Virtue: Sometimes, things don’t work our way no matter how much effort is put in. Things backfire and the entrepreneur thinks it’s his/her fault. Stop the blame game and embrace patience. It would help you a long way in business setbacks.

  5. Take Time to Appreciate: We all need to do this quite often because people get caught up in their own competitive race that they forget to appreciate themselves. Even if you think it is a small accomplishment, make it a point to pat yourself on the back!

  6. Embrace Change: Keep a constant check on your company policies to see whether you are being too rigid in ideas. Many startups fall into this trap by getting into a loop where change becomes a forgotten term. Bring a meaningful and organic change in your business ideas and product design which would even keep customers interested.

  7. Push the Limits: There is absolutely no limit in innovation or setting a trend. Being a startup entrepreneur, you should know that limit is a myth.  Enjoy pushing the limits and that, in turn, keeps your team motivated to come up with ideas.

  8. Know you Best Aspects: What makes your company stand out among the competitors? Which features are the most attractive in your products? As an entrepreneur, you must know these facts through and through.


  9. Communicate. Always:  A lot of companies fall back with the slightest lag in communication among the members. Choose a communication medium which suits you best and follows it religiously. Every new update and change made in the company should be notified to all management levels- to increase transparency.

  10. Believe the Vibe: Trust your instincts at times to make big decisions. At times, long thought and logical thinking may not help you in taking time-bound decisions. Believe in the power of intuition and go with the flow!
