Bob Parsons says it best, coming from a man who has been in the trenches. On his video blog he goes over 5 things that are not taught in school but are essential to every entrepreneur.

  1. Start Small
    1. You don’t have to go all in
    2. Get a proven idea that works before ‘going all in’
    3. Always have a fall back (IE: keep your day job)
  2. The Best business Partner, Is no partner
    1. Two heads are not better than one, right? Wrong!
    2. Typically you will spend more time negotiating and compromising than working on the business.
    3. You need one clear leader
  3. Solve you own problems
    1. You don’t need mentors
    2. Solving your own problems will give you breakthrough advantages
  4. Don’t fight fate
    1. Once opportunities start to present themselves be prepared to act
    2. IE: Yamaha started out only building pianos, now they build motorcycles and so on…
  5. Do you feel lucky?
    1. Luck plays a big part in success
    2. Be prepared to take advantage of lucky breaks when they arise

Bonus Tip

Stay out of your comfort zone.
