Building a Successful Business

So you have the idea, but do you have the chops?

Always think big, think positively. Entrepreneurs are eternal optimists. Bad economy? We’ll succeed. Smallest company in the pitch? We’ll win.

Don’t be afraid to break the mold. People don’t reach success by following others. Be a leader. Be the first person to try it.

Focus. Stay focused on your goals; keep your eye on the prize. By having your hands in too many things, it forces you to lose focus, lose steam and lose money.

Believe in yourself and your idea. If you can’t believe, then why should others. Sure there are unsure moments, but talk about them in the privacy of home with your non-business support network.

Never, never, ever give up. Failures are some of the best learning experiences life can give you.
