Starting a Business

Starting a business is hard.
Starting a business in a country you’ve never been to, in a culture you’ve never experienced, with no money… well, might as well give up now. Right?
I have to say, it is quite tempting to give up sometimes. Especially when the numbers don’t line up. But this past week with all the constructive criticism that we received, we have come out better, and ironically, more realistic and ambitious at the same time.
The challenges have not even begun yet. Presenting a business plan is nothing compared to actually implementing the venture. We haven’t had to deal with challenges like electricity cutting out, random government regulations, theft, etc. but we have to be prepared for anything to really make this work. Will that prevent mishaps from occurring? No. But it will ensure that we ride through the storm in one piece.
