I have been running my own businesses now for over 13 years, and during that time I have been approached by countless people all asking me pretty much the same thing, and that is, “how do I become successful in business?”
If you ask 100 people that question, you are going to get 100 different answers. This is because most of the people you ask are going to talk to you about a specific business model, sales idea, or marketing tactic, etc…
In my opinion, the answer is simpler than that; however, I can’t actually take credit for the simplicity of my answer.
The Best Advice I’ve Ever Been Given
Back before I started my last company, I was given some business advice that, at the time, I thought was the dumbest thing I’d ever heard. It didn’t make sense to me, because I wasn’t yet in business.Â
Years later, I’ve come to realize that it was some of the smartest advice that I’ve ever received. I say this, because, after following the advice, I ended up building a company that I sold for $1.2 million back in 2008.
In the video post below, I share with you exactly what this advice as, as well as how I put it to use in my own business, and, it is my hope that, after watching this video, you will do two things; share the video with others, and take my adviceÂ to heart.
A Terrific Example
Shortly after publishing this post, I can across another awesome example to illustrate the point I’m making in the video above. Check out the screenshot below, and pay special attention to the massive boost in revenue that came from an idea that this company would have neverÂ had, had they not already started the business.
What Do You Think?
I definitely do not have a monopoly on all the best ideas on what it takes to succeed in business as I can only speak from my own experience. I’d love to hear what you think, so please share your ideas, thoughts, and comments below. Thanks so much!
