Successful entrepreneurs build on real world experience.
That is it!
You’re only as good as the last business you started.
The rest is B.S.
There’s much pain involved in becoming a successful entrepreneur because every lesson you learn are from things you didn’t do right. Trust me, it hurts.
If you’re just starting out, I don’t care if you’re an MBA, you don’t know squat about business until you’ve built one.
Here is a word to the wise;
If you need advice from somebody about business or anything else in life, only value the advice from people who have actually done it.
If you desire to make a million dollars, don’t go ask advice from your homey’s if they’ve never done it.
It’s like the stupid leading the blind and it’s the never ending circle jerk approach to building businesses.
Anyone who gives you advice about your future who doesn’t have first hand experience is full of crap.
Tuck this in your cap too; you’re only as good as the people you surround yourself with.
This is what has always amazed me about the social web; its access to the brightest, salt-of-the-earth professionals on the planet who are building businesses of substance and are willing to openly share how they did it with you and others who desire to do the same.
You don’t research your way to success – you build relationships with people who are doing what you desire to do and are willing to help you, or simply join them.
It’s an invaluable resource to any professional desireous of doing world-chaning work now.
