Starting a business has always been risky.

Research shows that only 10% of startups succeed within the first five years. Most cited the lack of market need and resource exhaustion as the reason for their failure.

Your business can still fail no matter how passionate you are. That is if you don’t come prepared.

Planning your business takes a lot of time and effort. But it lessens the risks you take and also prepares you to face challenges that will come your way. Seeking help from your community is also a way to confirm your ideas and get feedback on areas you need to improve.
