    Heres a few simple tips for anyone starting out in a business venture.

    1. So you have a great idea. Do your home work. Research, Research, Research. Check out any history. Those who do no learn from past mistakes are surely doomed to repeat them.

    2. Keep it simple. Try and keep things as simple as possible. Dont over complicate things that dont need over complicating.

    3. Dont reinvent the wheel. If something already exists that works well stick with it dont try to change it. This could be a process or product. If it aint broke dont fix it.

    4. Budgeting - Youve done all your calculations what ever the your costs are going to be double them. There may be things you havent seen or may not be aware of yet, or just bad luck.

    5. Keep costs down. Dont spend more than you need to. Needs more than wants.

    6. Similar to above, but dont move until you need to not when you want to. The time will come when you need to move on a discison, you need to be sure that you have to move on it or not.

    7. Working out skills and use of time. How much is your time worth? Is it more cost effective for you to do something or outsource it to someone who can do it better and possibly cheaper.

    Just a few simple tips.

    If you mean you only do what you know, then I sort of disagree. Many people are successful at something they dont know but are able to use another skill to overcome this lack of knowledge. For example if your great at project managing but you may have little knowledge of programming, however you could manage a project by out sourcing or employing a good programmer.

    With this said its a good idea to know your product ;)

    True, these are the basic things that you need to keep in mind in launching a business. Now, if it's your first time, keep the risks low, of course. Learn from science, experiment with basis to hypotheses.

    Really good advice. One of the most important ones is keeping costs down. Even if your business is doing well, don't squander your money. save money, keep the costs as low as possible. This way, even if your business has some 'slow' times, you're still doing well.

    Only trying those things that you know is like saying that you should stay in your comfort zone. As the thread starter said, there have been successful people out there that have been successful in their business even if what they're doing is outside their comfort zone. They just have to go through step 1: doing their homework. If you don't feel confident about stepping out of your comfort zone, you can always do research.

    I think your first tip is right, research and may add the word “plan”. After extensively researching about your business venture, it’s time to plan meticulously. Some people make the mistake of being hasty without meticulously planning their venture.
