Mumbai, November 30: Starting your own business is not as easy as it sounds. There are several factors which need to be considered and they need to fall in place for the proper functioning of the business. When you start a business, it is very important to be in the influence of people who will have a positive impact on you, rather than demotivate and pull you down.

The entrepreneurial journey is extremely satisfying,  but there are several challenges on its path. We have listed a few kinds of people from whom you should stay away.

  1. People Who Are Negative & Doubt Your Capabilities: Stay away from people who doubt your capabilities as one of the traits which are required when you start a business is confidence. So at no cost, you can afford people who doubt your capabilities. People who are negative will have a bad impact on you.
  2. People Who Will Not Stand by Your Tough Times: All days are not going to be the same. There will be days when your business will face a tough time. It is very important to choose people who will not leave you in your tough days.
  3. Those Who Have Big Egos: When you are starting a new company, everyone is on the same page and all the employees need to think of it as their baby. People at this stage can't carry excess baggage in the form of egos, which will create a negative impact and will hinder the growth.
  4. The Person who keeps reminding you of your shortcomings: Stay away from people who keep on reminding you of your past mistakes and shortcomings. These kinds of people will not let you move ahead in future.We hope that the above ideas will help you to stay alert and maintain a distance from such toxic people, whom you can't avoid at the start of your business.
