E19: 3 common mistakes to avoid if you want to create a successful fashion business

What sets successful businesses apart from the not-so-successful ones is not the money they had to begin with or the quality and the ideas they built a business upon, but their ability to identify and recover from mistakes.

Episode Notes

In this episode, Dessy shares the three biggest mistakes she has identified that she’s made (repeatedly) over the years. They are mistakes many entrepreneurs make too and not even realize these small actions and thoughts are standing in their way.

Listen to this episode and discover:
– why is it important to charge for your products and services for day one of your business;
– why FOCUS is the name of the game if you want to succeed;
– why you should be careful of accepting “favours”
and more….

Key Takeaways:

  • If you are not charging for products and services, you are not collecting valuable data.
  • You can’t ride two horses with one arse;
  • Surround yourself with the right people, on the right operational terms.
  • Don’t major the minors. Doing business is really simple and if you are struggling then you are most likely over-complicating on every level of being and doing.
