What do you wish you had known?

Think back to when you were just starting out.  What do you wish you had known? What advice do you wish someone had given you?

Re: What do you wish you had known?

The highest/lowest price doesn't always win the bid! You can't satisfy everyone, but you can get feedback on why you didn't win a particular job. Don't take it personal, it's business. Learn from your mistakes and move on. The worst thing you can do is dwell on a mistake. Your new potential client doesn't know about it, so keep it that way. Sell you and not the product. Many people know what they want, in my case, dog training. There are many dog trainers, but what makes you stand out. There's only one you out there. SHINE! Give a little more than the competition or what the client asks for. Show them you care and they will spread your name around like wildfire. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions!
