Tips for Entrepreneurship Success Beyond Managing Money Well
Successful entrepreneurs experience success because they visualize and set goals and then follow that up with actions steps that take them closer to achieving those goals. Additionally, most successful people set themselves up for success through preparation and discipline. Being able to manage finances is essential for success as well. A great entrepreneur has a budget that they stick to, they invest money wisely, have an emergency fund and are constantly looking for new opportunities for financial success and stability. Here are other tips and tricks that successful individuals practice daily and cost NOTHING.
1. Wake Up Early & Meditate
There’s a saying that goes, “The early bird, catches the worm” and this is so true amongst successful entrepreneurs. Early risers start their days ahead of everyone else and are able to naturally making their day more productive than others. Beyond that, they couple waking up early with a good nights rest and meditation. Taking care of your body and mind through relaxation, regular exercise and healthy eating are essential for improving the chances you will achieve success. Entrepreneurs that practice taking care of their mind, body and soul, tend to be overall happier and can achieve their goals faster than an average person.
2. Network! Network! Network!
Networking is very important to get ahead in life even more today than it was back in the day for Hendry Ford. Networking has a way of connecting people in different ways. Successful entrepreneurs who network are more innovative. Additionally, it is a great way to expand your circle of “go to” people to bounce ideas of off, give and gain advice as well open up avenues for new or different opportunities. Entrepreneurs that network tend to be sincere in helping others succeed and are said to rarely complain or be critical. Entrepreneurs know that for them to succeed, they also need to help others succeed. Network is the best way to meet others and become successful.
3. Entrepreneurs Know When To Say, “NO”
Saying yes to everyone or to everything can cause a person to lose site of their goals and distract them from being able to cross things off of their task list. Successful entrepreneurs are able to say no to things that can steer them away from their path to success. Types of activities successful entrepreneurs say “no” to include:
- Activities that are a waste of time
- Extra work
- Negativity and others
By doing this and knowing when to say no, they are able to focus on increasing their productivity and getting closer to their success goals.
4. Create a To-Do List & Keep Busy
A successful entrepreneur never starts their day without knowing what they have to do that day. Before going to bed, they create a “to-do list” for the next day. Determine the priority level of each task and use it as a guide for the day. Entrepreneurs who are successful are rarely idle; they work anywhere between 60-100 hours per week. That may seem like a lot, but it is what’s necessary to be successful.
5. Keep the TV Off & Read More
Did you know that 85% of wealthy people love to read and 88% of those spend 30 minutes or more a day reading a book that is geared to self-improvement? Successful entrepreneurs keep their eye on growth: financial, personal and network growth. As you grow, so does your level of success.
