The biggest mistake many business owners make, is that they try and run a business like their life, which is sometimes a mess, rather than run their life like an efficient business. One must conquer oneself first through education. Einstein stated a problem could not be solved at the same level of thinking it was created. That in itself is a cry for self education.
The next issue is marketing. Everyone thinks that their idea is going to change the world simply because it exists, but if people don't know you exist, then your message remains a mystery. People are just people and you have to let them know you exist, because they are too busy and won't look for you.
thirdly, in the information age, a business owner can acquire all the knowledge they can handle, but without proper application, then it is useless. Try try again. Failure is only failure if you don't apply the knowledge and wisdom from the mistake to move towards success.
I speak from experience in all these matters and success is in the journey, and the journey lasts a lifetime.
