Whatever we do in life, there will be ups and downs, times when we are on top and times when we simply want to give up; this is especially the case for entrepreneurs.
When trying to start a business from scratch, there might be times when you will win big, and others when you will be close to bankruptcy. Trust me on this, it happens to us all.
When these bad times hit, many people give up – but not those with the right mind-set. They ride the entrepreneurial roller coaster right to the end, until they have made their company a success.
So what is the right mind-set?
Ignite your passion. 95% of your job will be repetitive, you’ve got to LOVE the 5 %.
Overcome the naysayers and follow your passion. When following your passion it’s important not to worry about everyone liking you. There will always be people putting you down; the more success you experience, the more they’ll dislike you. Sad but too true to not acknowledge.
Makes SALES your number one job. Maybe you’re uncomfortable using the word “sell.” Not a problem. Try replacing it with the word “help” and consider how your product aids people and addresses their needs. Knowing how your product helps customers is key, because a salesman’s most important quality is empathy.
Your employees are the key to your business – so hire the best. People make a company what it is, and to build a high-performing business, you need high-performing employees.
You GOT this!
