People use disadvantages and turn them into strengths. It is also interesting to note that it works the other way around as many people use their strengths to expose potential weaknesses.
1. No Overhead To start A Business
When you start a business, the last thing you want to do is spend any money that you do not have. By working in a garage, entrepreneurs can make and mix, revise and improve their product, service, and/or idea without increasing their bills.
2. Need A Place To Do What You Want
Some of the greatest companies have started with the craziest ideas. The founder of Boost Juice started first in a shared room with the family after initially selling the family home to fund the project and then to a bigger area.
3. Work Crazy Hours When You Start A Business
People often work strange hours. For instance, in fashion, the designers always work at night for some reason. Entrepreneurs work even crazier hours as the demands upon us far outweighs our allocated time. What we often do is work until we cannot work anymore or when our brains are about to explode.
4. Steer Clear Of The Naysayers
Entrepreneurs are often misunderstood. So much so, it is as if we are not only speaking a foreign language but hail from a different planet. We need a place to be crazy and foreign.
5 Quick- Turnaround
One of a company’s greatest assets when it’s starting out is the fact that there is no middleman. The entrepreneur is at the forefront of everything and is required to take care of every task. That leads to quick turn-around and lightning-fast customer service when the number of customers is small. Considering that they are stuck in their garage so they have no choice but to be responsive!
No matter where you start your business, always remember where you came from and why you started the business in the first place. When you pack up and move to a bigger establishment after achieving your first taste of success, also remember your original passion. Irrespective of the real estate you ultimately reside in, you must keep the old fire alive and burning with energy and innovation.

“When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward your coveted goal.”
