Press Release   •   Sep 27, 2010 15:37 EDT

Some of the barriers exist for everyone, such as where you’ll get your initial funding and how you’ll find time to manage your business, family responsibilities all at the same time. Other issues are nothing more than these kinds of Obstacles. For instance, concerning about your age or experience level when dealing with a potential client is a problem you create for yourself. These types of troubles are nothing more than mental games you’ll play with yourself that will only hinder your performance. As an entrepreneur, you must overcome them in order to be a successful entrepreneur.

When you’re just starting out, there are many issues you’ll find yourself facing every day. Some of these key success factors include being able to,
Gain funds for your business without anterior credit or connections
Overcome any feelings of insecurity about your age
Concern about the business
Let’s address the issue of funds. It might be hard for you to raise startup capital for your business-taking on a part-time job may be the only way you’ll be able to do that. You will be lucky if your parents can able to provide initial funds.

Speaking of age, let’s see the age-related insecurities. It’s natural for young entrepreneurs to feel insecure about their age when dealing with older people. If you’re concerning about your age, it may be a natural reaction to bring up-and defend- your lack of years while speaking with clients. But you shouldn’t do like that, because you’ll only be defending a position that was never an issue with your clients in the first place. And by getting up your own insecurities, you may just plant that concern in the head of the person you’re dealing with.

Some of the entrepreneurs might be worried about whether your service is going to help them or not, not about who’s behind it. If you let this type of thinking continue, you’ll blame any kinds of failure on your age and inexperience instead of focusing on the real reasons your business isn’t thriving. This is a fatal business flaw. Youth should be an asset rather than a liability. Try these tips to avoid the age blame game:

Whenever the word “age” comes sneaking into your mind, change the subject.
Remove all the insecure thoughts with memories of all the hard work you’ve put into your business.
Understand that you’re probably ahead of where the person you’re speaking with was at the same age.
Realize the fact that, your youth enables you to take many risks that older people in the same position could not. You’re young, without having a spouse and kids-probably unlike your competition. You can take chances and your age grants you energy and a sharp mind. View yourself as a “young gun” stay aggressive and keep thinking positively, you’ll have a successful run. Never stop promoting yourself and your business and never be afraid of success!
