    I have had several businesses over the years not work out before finding a successful path in their respective industries. A bit of trial and error seems to have always been a part of my "break in" periods when entering a new industry. This is the case for many of us.

    Did your first business venture become a success, or did you make attempts at business that did not succeed before you had your first, and is this a pattern for you sometimes when entering new terrains of business.

    When I was 16 I built a website on student loans. I knew nothing about student loans. I made a bit of money through adsense. Then I turned 19 got in a jam and needed cash. I sold the site and made $1,200 off of it in one go.

    The money really helped!

    My first business was NOT a success. My parter and I were well over our heads, thinking we knew everything we needed to know to open a bakery. We didn't last a year. However, we both learned from it and continued our schooling in order to be successful one day. We didn't give up. Although we are no longer partners now, I have opened a kitchen store, and she has opened a new bakery/cafe. Knowledge is power, especially in business.
