Biggest Mistake?
What do you think is your biggest mistake you made with your business? Mine was becoming a partner with a relative and I ignored the advice to never do business with friends or family.

Just one? Wink

One (of many) was when I first started in IM thinking others were competitors instead of looking at them as potential partners.

Not building a list.

It'll take me a while to figure out what the biggest one was. And then I'd be hard put to determine how long that one will stay at the top of the list.

Yeah we should probably make a list instead of trying to just pick one. [Image: wink.png]

This is just one of my many issues. (Click to play):

I made a lot of mistakes but in the process of doing this I helped some people.  I try not to focus on the 
mistakes because they have to be made in order to progress.  I like to think I made a difference in someones life
and I tried to do that.   I tried to partner with someone who I am pretty sure had mental issues.  All I can say is
don't do that.  I think that was my biggest mistake.

I based my whole businesses on quizzes written using Flash. I knew that Flash was being gradually phased out but I was going through a divorce and thought I had the time to deal with it. Then I started getting complaints that my quizzes didn't work any more. Lost most of my business.
