6 Lessons Learned From One Month as an Entrepreneur.
Today marks day 30 of my second round as an entrepreneur. Here are a few things i have learned over the last month. I kept it short and sweet. I hope you enjoy.
1. Health is priority one.
Your health is everything. Without an able body you will never enjoy the fruits of your labor. Work hard on your business but work harder on your body and mind. Run, walk, ride, stretch, breathe and push yourself physically. (more…)
In the age of information it is damn near impossible to put down the resources and pick up the pace on that little thing called action. As a small business owner you are bombarded with software solutions, productivity tips, time-saving tools and more marketing advice than you know what to do with. It is so easy to let these emails, status updates, blogs and late night internet crawls leave you paralyzed with ideas and action items for your business. So, it is no surprise that after digesting anything you can get your hands on you have a to do list a mile long but the phone still isn’t ringing… but there is hope! (more…)
Why did you start your business? Was it to avoid the commute? To work in your PJs? To spend more time with your family? Or was it to change the world?
Perhaps it was all of the above reasons and then some but we must not lose track of one of the most important obligations that comes along with the responsibility of owning your own business. It is the moral obligation to make the world a better place… You are doing that already, but it is easy to lose track.
“If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. … We need not wait to see what others do.” – Mahatma Gandhi
