Starting out as an entrepreneur is an exciting but daunting time - especially if you are a beginner. There are people who start up, fail with what they’re doing and then try again with something completely different to their original idea a couple of years from when they first started. Just because they’ve done it before doesn’t mean that it’s any less of a heart-racing career change than before. This is something that definitely takes guts to do; who else do you know that will drop their 9-5 to branch out on their own? If you’re already within a circle and know quite a few people, then you’re in good stead. If you’re doing it alone, you may need just a little bit of advice from those who have preceded you.
