  1. In your first 6 months of starting your business, please list out the top 3 pain points you struggled with:

I took classes and joined a mastermind group

  1. Do you feel you have a good balance between your job, business and personal life. If yes, how did you achieve this? If no – why not?

  • Make sure there is a market for what you sell and that you have a unique position to serve that market.
