Beginnings are hard, especially when it comes to business. Mistakes or missteps early in your career can delay, or even halt, your development in some areas. A lack of confidence — or too much — at a key moment can send your career onto a side track and away from where you want to go.

Sharing those moments of “I wish I had done this instead” can help. Telling others helps you emotionally, as well as helps you internalize what you learned. Talking about your experiences also aids the people you share the advice with: They know not to make the same sort of choices when facing similar circumstances. Below, members of Forbes Coaches Council talk about the business advice they wish they heard earlier and now share with their clients.
