Tina Roth Eisenberg: How To Move Forward By Looking Back

Running a new business is all about moving forward. But according to one well-known designer, it's also important to look back once in a while.

"I think the best advice I can give right now to a young entrepreneur is to always remember why you started what you started," says Swiss designer Tina Roth Eisenberg. "Stay really true to that and never lose having fun doing what you do."

Eisenberg, whose popular blog and design company swissmiss boast clients that include the Museum of Modern Art and the Food Network, sat down with eCommerce site Shopify to discuss her tips for achieving entrepreneurial success.

Watch the video above for more of Eisenberg's advice.

Eisenberg will be featured as mentor for Shopify's Build a Business Competition, which, in partnership with The Huffington Post, offers new businesses the chance to win $50,000, as well as receive advice from established entrepreneurs.

In 2012, Eisenberg's temporary tattoo company Tattly took home the top honors for the competition's art and photography category. She hopes the knowledge gained from that experience might be helpful to others.
