6 Tips for Entrepreneurial Success have been given by Mike Williams and shared by Matt Lloyd who is a very successful Entrepreneur and we are displaying these tips here for the benefit of our dear readers.
The transition from an employee background to an entrepreneur can be one of the biggest challenges of your life, especially if you don’t have any family or friends who are entrepreneurs.
You have to change the way you think, the way you act and the way you live your lifestyle.
1. FIND MENTORS WHO UNDERSTAND YOUR GOALS
Mike Williams credits a lot of his entrepreneurial success to having wonderful mentors. There are plenty of people who will be willing to take you under their wing, if you seek them out and ask them to be your mentor.
Although it’s extremely helpful to have a mentor who’s accomplished in the industry you’re going into, that doesn’t need to be the only kind of mentor you have. Find anyone, even a family member, who’s willing to encourage you and understands what you’re trying to do.
Mike Williams’ father did not encourage him to leave his career to start a business. He was more of a family man than a businessman, and was not a risk taker.
If you can relate to Mike’s lack of support from those closest to him, it’s incredibly important that you are able to find people who do support you.
2. READ BOOKS
All successful entrepreneurs read books. If you’re concerned that you don’t have the time to read, you’re not alone, but don’t let that stop you. Listen to audiobooks when you’re exercising instead. The wisdom you can gain from books is too valuable to pass up.
3. ATTEND EVENTS
Attending events is how you can combine the value of being around supportive mentors and acquiring valuable knowledge.
Don’t limit yourself to just MOBE events. Find local networking groups in your area, attend regularly and get to know others who are on the same path as you. This is a way you can fight the loneliness that many entrepreneurs suffer from.
4. TRY, EVALUATE, IMPROVE AND REPEAT
Don’t expect everything to work on your first try. When things don’t work, just evaluate and improve them the next time.
The secret of the world’s top entrepreneurs is not that everything they touch instantly turns to gold. It’s that they try many different things, and although they don’t all work, they keep going and don’t let temporary failures stop them.
Continue what works and stop what does not work.
5. PARTNER WITH OTHERS
Be open to partnering with other entrepreneurs. Business partners can sometimes be difficult, but they can also sometimes be a blessing.
If there’s a particular aspect of your business that you hate doing, it’s practically guaranteed that some other individual or company wants to do it for you. They may even be desperate to do it. That’s something to take advantage of.
6. TAKE ACTION
Finally, keep taking action. Remember that any action is better than no action at all.
If you fail, it’s better than having not acted at all. Allow yourself to fail in the interim and you will ultimately succeed.
