An irregular blog of stuff....Design, Music, Film and Media...things that can interrupt your day (in a good way). By Steven Thomas: Husband, Father, life long indie kid .. I run a digital start up called WOW247.com based in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Inspiration From the business plan of Hiut Denim;
Judge the business over the long-term. The early years are never easy.
It takes time to build a business. The first couple of years are inevitably tricky. The basic systems and the infrastructure all have to be built up from scratch, the customer will have to be found, and the product refined. It is a time when the business is both time and cash hungry.
But we should not be quick to judge the business. It should be given time to grow slowly. Patience is what will be needed. Hard work takes time to show the fruits of all that labour.
We should view a young business as we would a young child. It needs love, time and a set of rules to adhere to. It will make mistakes, it will fall and it will need the parents to be there for it as it grows and becomes its own person. We should not make too many demands on it when it is young, let the child play for a while.
It will grow up before we know it.”
