expert panel

Many people dream of starting their own business, being their own boss and taking charge of their work life.

For this reason, many aspiring business owners choose to seek out a co-founder to help them on their journey. From giving your business more credibility to acting as a soundboard for your creative ideas, opting to enter into such a partnership may just be the perfect solution for you. Here, the business leaders of Young Entrepreneur Council explore these benefits and more as they outline 10 reasons why someone may want to find a co-founder rather than go it alone as a solopreneur.

To do so, consider the following advice from the members of Young Entrepreneur Council. Here, they offer their best tips for how to ensure a smooth transition and avoid any negative impacts after a C-suite exec leaves your company.

That’s why we asked nine members of Young Entrepreneur Council to share their best tips for how to successfully negotiate a salary increase and why doing so can help you get the increase in pay you deserve.

While any aspiring entrepreneur hopes to achieve success right away, one difficult truth many now-successful entrepreneurs cite is that the road to successful entrepreneurship is often paved with failure. From poor ideas to failed launches to repeated rejections, failure can crop up in numerous ways throughout a business leader’s career, no matter how experienced or knowledgable they are. However, even understanding that failure is part of the journey won’t necessarily make it an easy path to follow, making maintaining a positive perspective in the face of rejection and adversity a difficult task. To offer their guidance, nine members of Young Entrepreneur Council discuss their best advice for maintaining the right mindset while on your entrepreneurial journey and how doing so will catapult you toward success.

No matter what business you run, when you’re designing your website, you’re not really designing it for your business—you’re designing it for your customers. Users of your website need to be able to easily find your website and navigate it to find the solution to their problem.

As business leaders themselves, the members of Young Entrepreneur Council understand what it takes to produce a thoughtful website that keeps the user experience in mind, and here, they each share the one rule or lesson they think about when trying to create a better user experience for their website visitors and how this thinking helps shape their final design.
