After reading The Entrepreneurs Blog, I came across an article called 21 tips for young and aspiring entrepreneurs. The article discussed a variety of techniques and tips that young entrepreneurs should practice. In this post I will discuss some of the tips I thought were especially interesting and that apply to my own situation. The tips I’m about to discuss all come from famous and successful entrepreneurs and should be taken seriously.
The first tip comes from Steve Jobs and its “Do work you love”. This is a tip that most entrepreneurs don’t take seriously. It’s easy to chase the money going venture from venture trying to make your first million. However you will never find true success and won’t be able to maintain your success unless you are doing something you really love. When you are passionate about you work, you really put 110% into everything you do.
The second tip I liked was from Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn, his tip was to “find good people”. If you want to change you need to change who you socialize with and interact with. Also finding good people for your business is very important. You need to find the right fit for the position, don’t just fill positions with random employees who don’t share the same vision as you.
Tip number three comes from Steve Jobs, and its “Do the time”. Meaning success doesn’t come over night, it takes countless hours of work and dedication to your idea. You actually have to work and put some elbow grease to become successful. Steve jobs starts making mac computers in a garage with a couple buddies. They put in the time and effort to get where they are today and it takes even more time and effort to become a leader in your industry.
The last tip I will finish this post with is from Walt Disney, and its “Take Action”. You never will become successful talking about it, you need to start now and work hard towards success. You hear plenty of people saying that your ideas are great and that’s usually the last of them. You need to get started, begin the business plan, find a partner, get a mentor do anything that’s working towards your goal. Photo Credit
