James Caan: Top five tips for starting your own business

This is a “blog post” on LinkedIn.  It’s a new feature I still need to blog about on my LinkedIn blog.

James Caan is one of the few invited to blog, and he shares five tips for starting your own business, including:

  1. Be brutally honest with yourself.
  2. Have confidence in yourself AND listen to other people’s advice and ideas.
  3. Do your homework (no blind faith).
  4. Unique value proposition vs… “the real key,” which is to be faster, better, cheaper and more convenient than your competition.
  5. Stay focused on the business, not on trivial things.

This is a great read… James goes into more detail on each one.  Check out the original post.
