Successful Entrepreneurs Build On Real World Experience


Successful entrepreneurs build on experience.

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.

    Yeah, but my knuckleheaded friends are a lot of fun to be around…

    And you are only as good as your last sale, right? What have you done for me lately?

    • Mark Harai

      You know we’re two peas-in-a-pod when it comes to business… Sales = profit – the rest is overhead :o

      A little old school, but it still reigns true : )

  • Rachael Tiow

    Super and brutally honest piece!

    Awesome job, Mark! :D

    • Mark Harai

      Hi Rachael, I can only share my experience and this is a fact of life to live by : )

      It’s good to see you, miss – thanks for stopping by : )

    Boy I agree with you on that one Mark.

    So I have this friend online and I like her just fine. Never met her in person but have had some serious talks. She blogs but if you can imagine this, she doesn’t even have any social sharing icons on her blog. She rarely gets comments so I oftentimes wonder why she’s even here.

    So last month she and another blogger launch a product and guess what it is? Teaching other people how to have a successful blog. I like to fell out of my chair. I’m over here shaking my head thinking to myself that this woman is going to teach people how to be successful blogging when no one shows up on hers? No community, never seen her on Twitter, she doesn’t even have a Facebook fan page. Don’t get me wrong, she’s a nice person but seriously!

    So there you have it. The blind leading the blind. Want to come along? ;-)

    • Mark Harai

      No, I will follow the lead of professional bloggers like yourself, Adrienne – thank you : )

      I really need to get to more effective community building myself!

      This new blog I’ve been trying to get up for a couple of months, along with building a few organic communities to support it, is not an easy task. It’s a lot of work.

      It takes time away from I what I love doing most…hanging out in the community, building relationships, helping others…

      I can’t wait to get my feet under me and get to doing the most important work of all in blogging – PEOPLE WORK.
