Starting a small business - what to look out for

A friend of mine is planning to start a small business, she is making and selling small rugs, with lovely designs.

I'm wondering if anyone on here has experience with running a small business and would like to share any useful tips for me to pass on, especially in the area of things to avoid and be careful of, etc.

Thanks for any responses.
i started a handmade cards business on etsy and one valuable lessons i learnt is doing lots of research. this can be watching videos from other small businesses, reading blogs or looking at what works online. i would also start social media pages, especially instagram, so you can have an audience and you can ask people questions and suggestions on how you can improve or what they want to see.
sorry for writing this as if it was directed at you lol
