5 KEYS TO ENTREPRENEURIAL SUCCESS IN 2017

5 KEYS TO ENTREPRENEURIAL SUCCESS IN 2017

If you are ready to experience entrepreneurial success in 2017, be prepared to work. The other day I overheard a business owner say, “Hopefully, luck will be on my side next year and business will take a turn for the better.” Sadly, that way of thinking isn’t going to help him one bit — if I were to make a bet, I would let it ride on him failing again. If you are banking on luck, you might as well hit the casino and let it all ride on red or black at the roulette wheel. Here are five very simple, yet seemingly overlooked key points you need to address if you want to experience a successful 2017.

  1. PUT PAST FAILURES BEHIND YOU.

There are far more failures than there are success stories when it comes to startups and new businesses. Most fail, and that’s just how it is. It’s very rare that you will find a successful entrepreneur that hit a home run at his or her first at bat. In order to eventually get your win, you need to learn from your past mistakes, but also put them behind you. Don’t dwell on them or waste time looking back. Focus all your energy and momentum on what’s in front of you. I had several failures before I found success with my marketing agency.

  1. SHOW UP DAILY READY TO HUSTLE.

The minute you start to slack or switch into cruise control mode, you immediately lose valuable momentum. Go into each day knowing you must hustle hard and take full advantage of every available minute.

  1. WORK ON YOUR BUSINESS DAILY.

Work “on” your business, not “in” your business.

Once you understand there is a huge difference, you will experience the type of growth that is needed to succeed. Learning to delegate responsibilities was one of the reasons my marketing agency succeeded, while past ventures failed. I used to think that I could do it all — trust was a big factor. I would rather work 18-hour days and try to do it all rather than delegate to someone capable of handling the tasks.

Hire freelancers and virtual assistants to handle simple, yet time-sucking tasks. This allows you to focus on more important tasks, like strategy and growth. Use these tips to make your freelancer hiring process as smooth as possible.

  1. LEARN AND IMPROVE DAILY.

Strive to become a better entrepreneur every single day. There are several ways to learn — industry conferences, mentors, coaches, etc. — but there is something you can do every morning that will have a huge impact on your success — reading.
