In this installment of this two-part article, Black Business Global, a trusted black businesses directory in Canada, shares more tips to help you achieve your business goals:

1. Recognize Your Value

The more you recognize and acknowledge your skills, experience, knowledge, and education, the more you build your self-esteem and self-confidence. It’s crucial to build your self-confidence because then you are able to interact with people in a more positive, effective way.

2. Invest in Learning More

Education is your greatest asset, so you must continue to learn and seek information. If you have decided to start a business in Canada, you should be familiar and knowledgeable about doing business in Canada. Volunteering and helping others is an excellent way to meet people, network, and learn more about Canada.

3. Acknowledge Your Limitations and Know When to Ask for Help

Sometimes you may find that you are not an expert in everything. So it’s essential to know your limits and to seek help from others when you need it. For example, if you are not sure where to start, ask a friend who has started a business before. Or try to talk to a financial advisor.

4. Invest in Yourself But Don’t Forget to Pay Yourself

Invest in your business and yourself by participating in networking events, seminars, and Sunday meetings. If you don’t have money to invest right now, then find a way to pay yourself. Set aside a certain amount of money every month. Even if it’s a small amount, you will be sending a signal to yourself and your family that you take yourself and your business seriously.

5. Challenge Yourself

It’s easy to stay in your comfort zone, but you are better off when you challenge yourself. Stretch your comfort zone by taking on new tasks and responsibilities. Challenge yourself to take your business to the next level. Challenge yourself to grow as a person and a business owner.

6. Take Criticisms Seriously

A lot of people will experience a lot of criticism, but you must take it seriously. Learn from the criticism. Instead of being angry or upset by the comment, learn how to improve your business based on the advice of others.

7. Keep an Open Mind

Your mind is a powerful tool. It can help you, or it can hurt you. Keep an open mind by listening to others, learning about your community, and learning about what it takes to be successful in Canada.


There are a lot of things you need to know when you start your own business in Canada. However, if you follow the tips described above, you are more likely to make a positive impact on your community and bring value to your business. It’s also important that you connect with other black businesses in your area to know they can help you and how you can be of help to them in turn.
