Can rats climb? What’s the first thing I should do to build a successful business? Can you give me any practical advice on what to do with my time while building it?  What’s your favorite part of running your own business? The list is not exhaustive. If there are other things that have helped you, please list them in the comments! Networking – Setting up meetings and cold-calling people will help get connections going for future opportunities. These might be investors or new clients/customers. It can also lead to new partner relationships which could be very helpful down the road as well! (In some cases this may need investing more time upfront if one doesn’t already have these contacts.) Marketing – Even for a small company, marketing is an important part of success. The best thing to do when it comes to marketing is just get started with something! It doesn’t have to be perfect but at least you are doing something rather than nothing and this will lead eventually towards better solutions or opportunities. Sales – If your business isn’t in sales then that may be the problem as it’s likely what keeps getting ignored most often in favor of other pressing tasks which leads back into “marketing” (coming up next). Sales can also mean more than just being customer-facing; there’s always phone calls, email followups, pitching new deals/deals from old contacts, etc., whatever it takes make sure you’re pushing through those cold calls
