As an entrepreneur, running a business can be tasking and energy-sapping sometimes. You have to make sales, supervise your staff and keep it all together and also make sure your business is successful.

The following are the things you shouldn't do if you want your business to be successful.

1. Do not say yes or no impulsively

An impulsive yes or no often leads to big problems. Find some time to think over the answer to see if it is in line with your vision or not.

2. Do not lose focus

Try closing your doors and avoiding calls and mails for about one or two hours so that you do not lose focus. Jumping from task to task only leads to disaster.

3. Do not hold on to unserious employees

Employees who have a poor attitude to work are the ones holding you back. As a smart entrepreneur, work hard to build a healthy culture and put sentiments aside by letting go of people who are not fit to work.

4. Do not believe you are always right

As a smart entrepreneur, surround yourself with smart people that you can learn new things from. You are not always the smartest person around. Therefore, learn from those who have more experience than you.

5. Do not take uncalculated risks

Take risks, but make sure that they are well calculated. Before you take a risk, ask yourself how much you are willing to lose.
