When you see what looks like an opportunity, you must grab it quick.
But even if you don't grab it, the opportunity will not be wasted because someone who is hungrier that you surely will.
We all make mistakes. That's how we learn.Consider these 10 Tips for Would-be Entrepreneurs:
1. Be constantly on the lookout for moneymaking opportunities.
2. Trust your intuition. If it looks like a good opportunity--grab it.
3. Nothing ventured. Nothing gained. Big risk means big reward.
4. Be willing to take carefully calculated risks.
5. When you have little to lose and much to gain--go for it!
6. Think big but start small.
7. Never invest more than you can afford to lose.
8. Keep your day job and get paid while learning.
9. Work for yourself evenings and weekends.
10. Don't leave until your part-time earnings equal your weekly wage.
