What it Takes to Start a Company in 2015

It seems everyone wants to start their own business nowadays. Although 2015 might be one of the best of times in history to start a company, there are still lots of challenges ahead if you want to get your business off the ground. Read the below advice of me and others at Inc.

Incredible Focus

Ask any 2015 business owner, and you’ll hear that the challenge of dealing with distractions is a major challenge when it comes to growing a business. Having incredible focus is a key to success.

Hans van Gent, founder of Inbound Rocket, puts it this way:

“To build & launch a startup in 2015, you need a crystal clear focus. You don’t want to waste time and money on products nobody wants, over the last years the “lean startup” methodology has been increasing in popularity and there is a good reason for this: it helps decrease the big amount of assumptions everyone has which all might lead to failure. Validate those assumptions first and then move forward.”
