They can negotiate lease agreements, They can sell and advertise. They can manage their finances. In other words, experience is key. To start your own business and be successful, you must learn how.
The Ability To Make A Difference

First is marketing . 48 percent of businesses that fail in America fail because a business cannot adequately sell its products or services. Very few businesses fail if they have high sales levels and revenue.

The second reason businesses fail, 46 percent, is due to poor cost control. They may have sold enough in the front end, but they lost so much in the back end that they broke anyway. Sales and marketing, finance and cost management, both require information. And if you are serious about financial independence, you should learn how to do both.
