Business Insights From the Founder of SHARONEL

What is your #1 piece of advice for startup founders?

“When you have a great idea and you know it can change an industry or help people’s lives, don’t give up! Don’t wait! You get the idea for a reason. Talk to people about it, don’t be afraid to speak about it! Opportunities will come your way when you open up!”

What is the best method you’ve found to avoid burnout as an entrepreneur?

“To avoid burnout, my secret method is going out to nature with the family. It gives me positive energy, and it always makes me see how wonderful our world is.”

What is your advice for coming up with a unique startup idea?

“Most likely, it’s best when your idea solves a problem. Don’t panic if you see you have competitors — that’s the good thing! Be happy for it, because it means there is a market for your service. Do some research, surveying to see what the real needs are, and focus on solving the market’s problems.”

What is your advice for overcoming challenges and failure?

“We never use the word failure. They are tasks, and they are normal. That’s how we learn the market, the business, and that’s how we can get better and better. They help us grow!”

What is the biggest lesson you learned and what can aspiring entrepreneurs take from it?

“Micromanagement is not always good. You need to trust the team, and you need to let them do their work. If you are wearing everyone else’s hat, who is wearing your hat? Who is thinking about the strategy? Who is making the important decisions?”

What is your advice for entrepreneurs seeking funding for the first time?

“Networking is the most important part of growing a startup company. Start networking as soon as you have the idea, a business plan, and a pitch deck. Do not hesitate. Just do it! Don’t waste time, and don’t make potential investors sign an NDA! No investors will steal your idea; they are investors to invest in ideas, not to build them!”
