How to not start an escape room-business Part 2


1. Wait with hiring. If you still are, do not hire unqualified early employees. And no one that is in the same phase you are. Hire someone that knows what he is doing. Be clear on his role. He may have done it before, maybe he has a startup experience but this is your project. Set boundaries.

2. Invest in yourself. Become a master in your field. If that is escape rooms, get to know latest technology that is being used, best offers to give your guests, learn a new skill you have not mastered yet but need,perhaps sosial media or finance. Find out what guests like most. Consume knowledge like air and put your pursuit of learning above all else.

Unless you are uncoachable. Own it and find the right person to do it for you.

3. Close your mouth and listen.It is the perfect time to.

4. Own your age.You will never be too young, you will never be too old. The moment you begin to give yourself an excuse for not being successful is the moment of almost certain failure.

Do not find an excuse not to do it,make a good story out of it when you are done.

5. Dream big. Be big. You think you are crazy or your idea is a wild dream? Good! Call me actually!! You are where you are supposed to be. Think of tomorrow already today. Even though you can not guarantee tomorrow, you are allowed and you should think ahead.

6.Remember you are just a human.

  1. I like your business plan and ideas how to begin from a scratch. It was inspiring for me and surely it will be the same for others “experienced beginners” as well 🙂 Wish you much creativity and success on the enterpreneurship path!
