It's no secret that starting your own business is risky and challenging. Even after years of failures and setbacks, however, many entrepreneurs still choose to continue trying their businesses one more time. The good news is, there are ways to reduce the chances of failure and keep on going with your business. Let's take a look at why so many new small business owners go bankrupt and learn how not to make the same mistakes when starting your own company.

What caused the startup failure of so many entrepreneurs?

The main reason why so many entrepreneurs fail at their startups is due to the same thing that caused many great businesses to go public - lack of support from family and friends. Entrepreneurs often get this wrong and end up spending their family’s money and their own money to get the business off the ground.

Entrepreneurs who use family and friends to support their startups are asking for financial failure and a sad ending for their business. Entrepreneurs who rely too heavily on family and friends, while nice people, are asking for major setbacks in the early stages of their business. Entrepreneurs who want to avoid these setbacks should learn to support their startups themselves - by funding them themselves and/or hiring employees who are willing to work for free.

Lack of support from family and friends

One of the biggest causes of startup failure among entrepreneurs is a lack of family and friends support for their startups. As the co-founder of a startups, you are the backbone of the business and your primary source of support. If you don’t have anyone in your network to turn to for help, you may have to start from scratch - without any financial backing from anyone. Make sure you have support in place for your business and be prepared to get your funds bankrolled early on.

Mistakes early on in the development of a business can easily become habits that can hinder its growth and, ultimately, its failure. Entrepreneurs who don’t hold firm to their convictions at the start of their businesses are likely to lose their way in the dark, uncharted territory that is entrepreneurship. When you’re in charge of the product development, you are effectively in charge of your own market. If your product doesn’t pan out, you’re stuck with a very expensive throwaway. Entrepreneurs who make the mistake of changing their product ideas frequently are likely to end up with a flop.

Entrepreneurial mindset: Set small goals and focus on them

You’re not going to be successful if you try and do everything yourself. There is no way around it - you need to hire employees to help you scale your business. If you want to start a food delivery service, for example, you need to hire employees who can help you serve the customers and make sure they receive their order on time. You can’t do it by yourself - and that’s okay! The key here is to have a small set of goals and focus on them.

Not enough capital: Set aside money for startup costs

If you don’t have the capital to get your business off the ground, you need to set aside money for startup costs. If you want to start a delivery service, for example, you need to have the money to purchase the equipment you will need to operate successfully. If you’re a software developer, you need to find money to buy the computers and software you will need to develop your product. startups often don’t have the money to buy the equipment they need to operate, so they turn to family and friends to get the funding they need. This is asking friends and family to put your business in jeopardy. Don’t do it!


As an entrepreneur, you have the opportunity to create something amazing and bring hope and change to the world. The key to success for any business is to find a way to overcome challenges and reach your goals. The courage to fail, the will to succeed and the correct mindset to make your business successful are what will separate the champions from the rest.

What is interesting, and quite telling, is that the way you respond in comments doesn't align with the way "you write" your posts.

Your English is poor, you use the wrong words, omit critical words and the context is often wrong. The fact that your comments, including those made to me on my Discord, are in complete contradiction to that which "you write" in your posts.

This says a lot, and people see and acknowledge what is going on here.

How is it a contradiction. You actually want to compare a comment made due to the intensity of the exchange of words and also those in the discord, you actually want to compare it with the posts carefully written with maximum time and patience dedicated to it to bring desired result including the vocabulary and the grammatical Tone.
There will actually be difference I guess

Well people can also see the comments I made in their various posts and they can see those comments on their posts are different compared to those made out of intensity and in rush you talked about in the post

They can actually see those comments by themselves not written in a cracky English but with fluent English according to the normal standard of vocabulary, they can also see that there is always room for improvement and learning which also includes vocabulary and grammar, they can also see those comments made in their various post were not made out of rush but was taken time of to make and so they will definitely see the difference. They can actually testify those comments I made on their post are worth scoring high rating in English as best known to them and I inclusive

This also says a lot, and people see and acknowledge that and they can also relate what is going on here because they also might have been in my shoe typing in a rush and out of intensity and they can relate it to when they made their post in a calm way possibly taking their Maximum time to think through and applied the standard of English they know to it.

All of these people can see, read and also relate and come to the understanding the differences that is in it also.


I really don't understand why you are doing all these. But at this point I am force to believe you are actually against my person for a reason I don't know for now. However to prevent further issues, I think it is wisdom I keep quiet henceforth while you continue your persecution.

Thank you
