Remember that passion comes with a price tag-‐the more the passion the higher your price tag can be. Start something you are passionate about, neurologically, you will do more of it and ultimately become the best in your field.
Mind your company
There will be those who will always show you the flip side or the half empty glass. Keep away from such people and keep the company of doers and positive people. They will put you on the right track.
Have a mentor, someone you don’t necessarily have to pay. Someone who has knowledge & cares and who will advise you in an unbiased manner. Have a family member or a friend who listens and wants the best for you (even if they can only listen).
Keep at it
None of the huge success stories you keep hearing about had it any easier than you. So keep at it and never despair. Others made it through before and so will you. According to Napoleon Hill’s Book – “Think & Grow Rich”, the millionaires who made it, were the ones who had made a decision never to give up and to stop at nothing until they were successful in business.
Keep your mind and body health
Take time off from work occasionally. Spend time with your family or go visit a friend. Getting some fresh air sometimes works wonders at changing perspective. Come back inspired.
Don’t micro manage
You will not be able to do everything yourself, though you will be tempted to. But that is only going to tire you out. Delegate and outsource what can be and instead focus on the critical tasks at hand.
Get a partner
Taking on a partner can be a stroke of genius. A partner will not only bring in additional resources and expertise he or she will also share responsibilities, thus lightening your burden.
Business is not only about grand visions and steadfast faith. It is also about taking flexible decisions, and thinking on your feet.
Become marketing centric
Nothing oils the wheels of a business better than a robust marketing effort. The more money you make, the more you can both grow your business and your income.
Strengths & Weaknesses
Know your strengths & weaknesses. Never try and do the jobs that you dislike. Always concentrate on the jobs you are good at and do more of it. Outsource the jobs you don’t like to do. Not everyone can do everything; so don’t
