Each week we ask some leading questions to an entrepreneur or business owner.
Here’s some of our favourite replies to … What do you think is the biggest myth of building a business?
“I can do it alone!” – Said no successful solo or entrepreneur EVER. Even if you are a solopreneur, it takes a village to build a business and brand.

“Once you are successful, you stay successful” This is a very positive and encouraging statement; however, most of the time, it may not be true.
Even when success happens and all your hard work has paid off, there will always be more to do, more to fight for, more to create and innovate, more to think and dream about.
The road to success is never-ending, and it takes many falls to take one step forward. But it is essential to keep in mind that this step forward is the most important because it represents progress and constant success.”
Yamilette Cano, Founder, and CEO of Louder Global
“I think the biggest myth is ‘I must have a lot of money and connections and skill sets to build a business’. Incidentally, for the past few weeks I have been discussing this topic; personally I think what makes a great business is the people. The founder himself/herself and the people in the business. When the people in the business have a positive, never-die attitude, perseverance, humble and honest attitude – I believe that would propel a business more than skill sets, money and connections. While these can help but it sets a limit as well. Hence, a shout out to those who are starting a business, believe in yourself and have the right attitude and that will always bring you further than what you have. It is the inside of you greater than the outside of you.”
