Not All Business Is Good Business

With my new show Project X, one question I seem to be getting a lot is, "What is the hardest part about starting a new company?" and also, "What is the one thing you need to do to start on a successful path as an aspiring entrepreneur?"

Both are great questions, but they are not so easy to answer.

It all starts with money.

Paying the bills, and trying to maintain a positive cash flow, while trying to have your vision come to fruition is not easy.

In the end the hardest thing you'll have to do is say no.

When running a business you must learn to say no. It doesn't come naturally. Saying no is a skill.

Sometimes even if you think you need to make that sale, or obtain that client, you need to always look at the bigger picture and determine if it is something you are doing for the money, or because you know it is good business. 

Being successful does not mean you should just do things to stay afloat. There are also all kinds of things you shouldn't do and are tempted to say yes to, but you are able to refrain from because you know it's good business to do so.

With any new idea always keep your focus on good work, good employees, and good clients. When you do good work with good clients, people notice!

It begins with your first job.

One of the most important business decisions is when and where you start your career. It all begins with taking that first job out of school that you don't want to take.

Between the pressure to work and to start making money, or to show your family and friends that the past four years of school paid off, a lot of people tend to take the first job offered to them. If these are the reasons you take a job, then that will be your first mistake.

Once you are at your new company you are immediately pressed to show that you can do your job well and make money for your organization. But, that place may not ultimately be the right fit for you. You might be getting paid more at first, but when it comes to your first job, you are better off making less money with a quality company doing something that you love, instead of making a lot of money in a shaky situation. 

The most important pieces of advice I have for you in business are:

  1. Dream big: Always dream big, never believe that your dream is unattainable.
  2. Sample small: Make sure your ideas are what you think they are (let's just say you need to have a reality check with yourself). 
  3. Fail quick: If you fail then move on, because failure isn't an action, it's a response to that action.

The quality of your brand is everything and must be nurtured every day of your career. Your personal brand is associated to the company you work for and the people you surround yourself with. If the people around you aren't doing anything to help you improve, then fail quick and find people who will.

In the end, quality always wins.

  • In today’s digital age, navigating the online landscape can sometimes feel like trekking through a treacherous wilderness. Lately, I found myself ensnared in a web of deceit spun by a group of frvudsters, leaving me feeling helpless and devastated. However, amidst the chaos, I stumbled upon a beacon of hope – COINS RECOVERY WORLDWIDE a recovery agency that would become my saving grace.
    From the moment I reached out to them, their team exuded professionalism and empathy. They listened attentively as I recounted my harrowing ordeal, offering reassurance and guidance every step of the way. It took us only 18 hours to recover my entire pension which i initially lost.
    their impact extended far beyond mere financial restitution. In the midst of despair, they provided a beacon of light, restoring my faith in humanity and reaffirming that goodness still exists in this digital wilderness.

  • Beware of individuals seeking your money or investment schemes offering unrealistic returns. They prey on unsuspecting individuals through deceptive programs. I lost over $145,000 to “Cashlyfaucet” a scam cartel online. In my quest for assistance to reclaim my funds, I encountered numerous endorsements on a Bitcoin Forum regarding RestoreChef. I reached out to him via email at RECOVERYCHEF@TECHIE.COM, and he successfully retrieved my stolen funds. If you’ve experienced a similar ordeal, feel free to contact him for assistance.

  • EFFECTIVE LOVE SPELL TO GET EX HUSBAND/BOYFRIEND OR EX WIFE/GIRLFRIEND AND CURE HERPES AND INFERTILITY THAT WORKS WITHIN 24 HOURS.

    Contact Doctor Odunga at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com OR Whats App/CALL +2348167159012

    I got my ex husband back to me and also got fertile and gave birth to twin girls after 12 years of marriage.
    When I came online last year, I saw a testimony about Doctor Odunga and how he has been helping people with marriage issues and I decided to contact him. We spoke on email at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and later he gave me his Whats-App number which is +2348167159012. He assured me he would help me get my ex husband back after 3 years of no contact. Doctor Odunga is the best spell caster I must say. My husband called me after 24 hours of contact. The third day, I received natural herbs for fertility and after using it, I became fertile and conceived. My husband and I reconnected, had sex and I was pregnant. Presently I am happy to say I am the mother of twin girls and this is ALL THANKS TO DOCTOR ODUNGA. I came online to say this: If you need help, I believe you are saved with this man.

    Contact his email at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com

    OR Whats App/Call +2348167159012 and you too will give a testimony too to help others
