Like any other start-up, Flynn also faced several major setbacks. However, he overcame them as he knew his idea was good and he was confident that he would succeed. Here are some tips he shares for entrepreneurs on The Sydney Morning Herald:
Nothing is impossible
A lot of entrepreneurs are discouraged by lack of capital and brand name. Do not hesitate to launch your business even when you don’t have a single penny with you.
Don’t be afraid to continue because you are scared of failure. Failure is the stepping stone to success. It makes you stronger to face any challenge. Learn from your mistakes and go ahead.
T.E.A.M – Together Everyone Achieves More. Gather a team and empower them. Work together and you will surely get through all difficulties and hurdles.
Lastly, there is no ‘right age’ to start your business; Daniel Flynn was 19 when he took off.
