Katarina Nilsson is interviewed in entrepreneur.com about her biggest business regrets:

Eqvarium Inspiration

Regret: I regret saying no to business opportunities where clients desired to buy more from my company than I initially offered. I turned them down instead of adding to my services and moving forward together with my business. Why did I do that? Control. Fear. Fixed points of view on what my business should be about.

I was basically standing in my own way — not the smartest of choices. It slowed down the growth of my business.

So how do you get out of your own way in business? When you stumble on a possibility, pick up the ball and run with it! Ask yourself what else is possible that you have not yet considered. Make quick decisions based on your gut and act on them. Trying and failing beats playing it safe.
