    Thank you for all the tips, but I especially liked number twelve. I had no idea where to even start and that was great advice.

    My biggest mistake could possibly be not making any mistakes…And I've never made this mistake. I'm proud that I've made tons of mistakes and still keep going not quitting.

    This video and Recreate are my favorite. My mistake as a younger entrepreneur was not building a savings account. I became pregnant and my business was physical service that no one I hired could do the way I did, but being pregnant set me back and I lost clients and money before my child was born without a savings because I blew my money. I have the best of material things, but no money, so eventually I had to sell those material things.

    The biggest mistake I made when I started my last business over a decade ago was thinking I didn't need a team ! You cannot do everything yourself ! I was the CEO, the CFO, the marketer, the receptionist , the everything and I thought I knew everything ! The truth is I knew nothing but learned from my mistakes
