    Unfortunately some setbacks can be a bad experience, however once tha pain eases they then become a learning curve.

    Would like to hear what you guys on the forum have to say .

    There is obviously lots not mentioned:

    * Find a product/service people will pay for
    * Work out how to deliver it and make a profit
    * SELL SELL SELL!

    Point 1: what is the definition of “Give Up”?
    Sometimes people should give up … if your idea isn’t working and you have tried lots of ways to fix it … then … GIVE UP and try something new!
    (It’s only a waste if you haven’t learnt from your experience)

    Like any business advice and life experiences – they may apply or not apply to your particular situation and against your particular set of morals and genetic make up.

    I believe the key to advice in general whether professional or personal – listen to everyone (within reason!), evaluate it all for yourself and then act. Not knowing or not doing enough homework is bound to catch up with you otherwise!
