It may sound counterintuitive, but one of the entrepreneurship tips you can glean from the countless start-ups that have come before you is to not overspend.
This means not being tempted to overspend investor money or small business funding and stay within your budget until your product or service takes off. This requires a frugal approach at a time when you’re excited about the new venture. However, the Small Business Association (SBA) says micro-businesses can get started with as little as a $3,000 investment. In many cases, no small business funding may even be needed.
There are all kinds of opportunities for saving money these days. Benetrends has compiled some money-saving hacks to help keep you from overspending and ensure the future success of your small business.
