Launching a Business: Six Mistakes to Avoid

Chargebacks911® COO Monica Eaton-Cardone’s New Guest Feature forUnder30CEO

Finding your path as an entrepreneur is no easy task. There are plenty of roadblocks to overcome, as well as mistakes to avoid, as Chargebacks911 COO Monica Eaton-Cardone explains in her latest guest feature for Under30CEO.

Under30CEO is a leading media site covering news, advice, trends, and events for young entrepreneurs. They reach an audience of tens of thousands of aspiring business leaders who rely on their contributors’ insights to guide them in shaping the future of the marketplace.

For many people, becoming your own boss can sound like you’re living the dream. In reality, though, it is often a constant struggle. “I’m not saying this to discourage new entrepreneurs,” Monica explains. “Rather, it’s a reminder that success takes more than just a great idea. I’ve been in business long enough to have seen many passion-fueled ventures fail, and other well-intentioned startups just never get their feet off the ground.”

Monica operated as an eCommerce merchant before launching Chargebacks911 in 2011. In fact, her own experience with chargebacks—knowing firsthand the devastation they can mean for a merchant—is what inspired her to launch the company.

In the piece, Monica draws on her own experiences as a merchant, and later, as the Co-Founder of Chargebacks911, to offer six mistakes that she’s made, and would warn young entrepreneurs to watch for.
