If you can sell your first business, sell it

Your first business is full of lessons learnt.

Wrong shareholders. Too much overhead. Too little focus. Weak product.

It’s unlikely you won’t make any mistakes.

Most people pay for those mistakes by losing their money, but at least they have lessons learnt.

If you can learn those lessons and get paid, take the money and run.

Start a new business with old lessons.

If you can sell your first business, then sell it.
