When entrepreneurs fail, usually it is not because they are in a complex line of business or industry, nor is it because of a mistake they made or taking a wrong step. Failing as an entrepreneur is usually a result of the entrepreneur’s lack of information or not having access to the correct information, especially regarding the pitfalls to avoid during building, expanding, and scaling a business. As Gregory Shepard posits, succeeding as an entrepreneur is mainly about avoiding certain pitfalls. This is the reason behind the establishment of BOSS Startup Science, a business academy where aspiring entrepreneurs learn all there is to know about running a business and succeeding at it.
