Being an entrepreneur doesn’t mean you have to go it alone. Most successful business owners will tell you they could not have accomplished their goals without help–from a mentor, colleague, even mom and dad. For many, their ability to evaluate, internalize and act on the counsel they received was instrumental in getting their companies off the ground.
the business realm has evolved a lot in the past years, technology, social media platforms as a medium of marketing which is even facing out print media, i mean every second person you meet is on Facebook, twitter, whatsapp, so why not move with the times, put your business where the people are…
“Do what you love, and the rest will come.”
“If someone funded your company, they funded your ideas and vision; your job is to turn that capital into the thing that’s in your head,” put your passion into it, I have been to many businesses that lack passion, it affects product/service quality . “There are a thousand lessons that I’ve learned from my entrepreneurial journey, and perhaps the most important of those is to be clear to investors about what the company will do and will not do, and be open about the priorities of the things that have to get done.”
But most important is to stick to your vision. “Don’t let other people tell you that your ideas are bad,”
“If you throw away ideas when they exist only on a whiteboard, you miss the point a lot of the time.”
“A great entrepreneur can take a bad idea and turn it into something incredible,” , This means that while ideas are important, it’s even more critical to have the right people in the right positions to execute them.
allow yourself to grow, as I always say “The courage to grow is business.”
