What do you wish you knew before being an entrepreneur?

Entrepreneurship is an interesting journey full of ups and downs and a rollercoaster of emotions. Perhaps something completely different from what we saw on the media. What did you wish you knew before taking your first leap of faith?

I wish I knew everything before I started as it would have saved me a lot of heart ache and money. The fact is what I thought I knew was mostly wrong. So in fact The University of Life is a critical piece of learning, at least it was for me. The best thing I could have done before in practical terms was to have brought on a good advisor/mentor as that would have made a big difference. Also, listen to other wise people. Something I didn't do before, but have since changed and now do.

Nothing. The process of discovery is one of the most important parts of being an entrepreneur.

I wish that I had more experience in cash flow analysts.

I learn't much about cash flow and now am much better prepared. But it's such an important and critical lesson as the company will live or die by cashflow.
