4. Know your obstacles:

Most entrepreneurs are optimistic and certain that they’re driving toward their goals. You need to know what you’re up against and be able to plan around those things, It’s much smarter to take a step back and figure out what your obstacles are, so the plan that you’re putting into place takes that into account.

5. Create a 'team charter:
Too many new teams race down the road before they even figure out who they are, where they’re going, and what will guide their journey.

6. Believe in your people:

Entrepreneurial leaders must help their people develop confidence, especially during tough times. As Napoleon Bonaparte said, "Leaders are dealers in hope."
