Going through the process of making something  and selling it is one of the best lessons I can offer a budding entrepreneur. 

 

I recommend making a tangible product or creating a service that is easily definable.  Then sell it.  Keep track of your expenses along the way so you can analyze your success when you’ve accomplished the task.

 

That simple exercise contains all the lessons an entrepreneur really needs to know, just on a micro-scale. 

 

Want to take it to the next level?  Do it again, but this time hire an employee.  Make sure you follow all applicable laws when you do. 

 

You can take a lot of classes, pay for a lot of advice, spend a lot of time. Or you can dive in and try it.

 

The basic transaction is the tiny seed behind everything. Understand it, and you can take that knowledge anywhere.

Everyone should make and sell a widget once in their lives.
