As entrepreneurs, we’ve all done it.  Maybe it’s that extra stubborn bone we have in our bodies.  Maybe it’s pride.  Or maybe it’s just the desire to not spend a dime on something that we don’t have to.

But sometimes, we just plain need outside help.

The best entrepreneurs know when to get outside their comfort zones and ask for help.  The topics and help sources are nearly endless.  You could need help on incorporation questions, strategy, marketing, legal, or funding.  You might be able to get that help from friends, family, mentors, industry professionals, or consultants.  Either way, you need help!

If you want to thrive as an entrepreneur, you must understand that critical point where you are simply beyond your expertise and it’s time to seek outside assistance.  That may be what brought you to this site to begin with.  Regardless, it’s important to seek that outside help so you can move past the problem you can’t seem to solve and move your business forward.  No one benefits from a stagnant business because you simply can’t figure out what to do next. 

The best entrepreneurs know when to ask for help.  Don’t be afraid to get the help you deserve when you need it.
