The night sky is glowing in the light of the moon, you are peacefully sleeping after a long haul of working, time is moving very slowly with the tender breeze flowing in your face, all of a sudden you wake up and the time is 3 am, you took your diary and wrote something and now you couldn’t sleep because all you can do is think about it. Sounds familiar? Yes, this is the perfect night scenario for most Entrepreneurs.

If you are an entrepreneur you can relate to that situation. Most of us have the dream of becoming an entrepreneur and working for ourselves and even many people will quit their job thinking they will have a bright future in entrepreneurship, but all this enthusiasm lasts for some weeks and they find more problems than before.

Every beginner Entrepreneurs face some problems and obstacles in their path during the initial time and most of us don’t know how to tackle this problem and stop in the Middle of the road not moving in any direction.

In this article, we will discuss the major problems faced by Novice Entrepreneurs and how to overcome them.

Creative Block:

Not only Entrepreneurs every one of us has experienced this in some way in our life, it may be an idea for a blog post or creating a new product or producing new artwork, we struggle at some time to complete it.

This may cause many distractions and fears for Novice Entrepreneurs but don’t worry this is common for all. You can face a creative block even after working in an industry for many years.

All you have to do is take a break from everything you are doing right now, (what? Then how can I complete my project before the deadline?). Taking a short break, refreshing, and reliving your tension from that project can let your mind rest and think in multiple ways.

Always remember this 1 hour of work with clarity is better than 5 hours in confusion.

Trusting Passion:

Passion is a great thing, every day waking up with the feeling of doing what you love is awesome but it doesn’t be the same for every day. Some days we won’t feel to do any work and on other days we will meet a dead-end and hit on a wall.

Working on these days requires high discipline and it doesn’t depend only on passion. So, passion is essential to work but depending only on passion will leave us devastated if our project didn’t end well.

Now take a paper and write why you are pursuing the Entrepreneur path? And analyze your results noting whether it resolves only around passion. If it includes reasons like “because of freedom” “No boss” then you need to rethink your decision because you should be willing to work even when it doesn’t feel to and skip vacation to complete a project.

Lack Of Learning Mindset:

For most of us, education stop right after we exit our schools or colleges but successful entrepreneurs avoid learners and they learn from anything and everything.

From Bill Gates to Elon Musk everyone succeeded in their field by learning everything. Learning must be a life-long journey so, spend some time every day just for the sake of learning. It can be anything, learning a new language, a new book, a new course or simply browsing the internet for the latest news.

Now all you need to do is enroll in an online course it can be related to your field or some random course like painting (Painting will Improve your imagination)

Lacking skills:

If you struggle in this thing, there is no other way just to stop your thing and commit time to learn that skill, without skills you cannot increase your level of success. You don’t have to learn every skill rather learn some core skills like leadership skills, decision-making skills, marketing skills.

For the rest of the skills, you can hire some people to do that work for you. This is the important part of entrepreneurship, everyone thinks that they need to do every work by themselves and shouldn’t ask for help from others, but in reality, you don’t need to learn everything.

Let's assume that you are a blogger and you are a good writer but you don’t know about SEO research or marketing, you can either start from the beginning and learn the basics of SEO and Marketing or hire someone who is a professional in that field. It will not only save your time but also help you to improve your writing skills.

Key Takeaways:

· Involve inhabits that boosts creativity

· Work beyond passion

· Adapt learning Mind-set

· Learn new Skills.


Here we are at the end of this article, these 4 problems are faced by every businessman but people beginning the Entrepreneur path will feel like to give up facing this problem during their initial days. So don’t feel dejected because you are not alone and you can overcome these problems.
