- Comprehending the market: The market can change completely in a short period of time, you need to be aware of the changes; what the customers are looking for and where your competitors are less vulnerable. Build a new plan and capitalize on each aspect.
- New business acumen: Developing a startup is not the same as running a mature business. The key parameters are marketing metrics, cash flow and investor expectations. Consider the changes in social implications, tax regulations and technology.
- Build strong relationships: Strong relationships are a must to have successful businesses. This includes your relationships with investors, industry players, your team and distribution channels. Build new relations, definitely use the existing ones that work and plan a positive iteration.

Learn to overcome it as a person and as an entrepreneur.
