There’s no shame in starting small. This is a principle that should not only apply to entrepreneurship but in all that we do as individuals.
Start small and grow your business. Waiting for the “perfect” time and the “perfect” resources will only stall the process.
Starting small gives you that golden opportunity to learn and be better in your niche. You’re able to analyse your growth over time and understand what works and what doesn’t.
Folorunsho Alakija once said:
Just start small with what you have and you can grow the business
