To resist the first years of a business
I initiated my business to the 23 years with great and ambitious aspirations, I put and dreams and with the idea to place my product between the inhabitants of a city of 240mil people. At that time the companies were few that in this city were convinced of the importance of having presence in the digital market. Years back it had ventured to me to realise some website for the company where it worked applying my first knowledge in programming. And it thought that in a virgin market he would be simple to construct a computer science monopoly. They do not blame to me, as soon as it began!
At this point, really it does not matter to approach the decisions that I took nor the bad experiences that I had trying to convince to customary owners of business to the traditional form, of which they had to enter a market where they did not go to it turns with the client and it would have a time more than reduced to convince it that its product was the best one and the more advisable.
What yes I will share, they are some things that helped me to survive the first years of this business that is excited, and that surely will help many entrepreneurs who at the moment are on the verge of throwing the towel.
Qualification. The learning does not initiate in a class classroom nor finishes there.

That is to say, it did not accept many advice, after all, had had good mentors and it was scared to forget what they taught to me. Nevertheless, when winning those fears, I could allow that a new mentor helped me to learn, to improve and to polish many areas that more ahead I needed.
