Succeed: Entrepreneurial Success Tips

6 Tips for Success

Passion: If you don’t love what you do then you need to seriously think about doing something else. Work never feels like work if you love your job.

People: Surround yourself with bright, energetic, optimistic people. Choose people who can get things done. Never work with anyone who causes you stress.

Planning: Always update your plan. Be aware of all aspects of your business and respond to the changes in your customer needs, the market and the finances.

Persistence: Continue to work your plan and never give up. Be open to change. If one thing doesn’t work try something else.

Personal well being: It is important to take a break, a day or two off and revitalize yourself so that you can mentally get back into the focus of the business.

Profits: You are in business to make a profit. Staying on top of the business and being aware of where the profits are. Know who your best customers are and nurture those relationships so that your company will continue to grow and be profitable.

Please share other success tips that have worked for you.

  4. Julie, nice article. I pick passion, planning, and persistence as the top 3 ingredients, in that order. Determination and hard work are needed too. I have included your blog in my list of “Blogs I follow” on my site. Would you do the same for me too?

    Thanks, John DeFlumeri Jr. in Clearwater, Fla.

  5. Great post Julie!
    I’ll share the tips on our blog as well. Another success tip to consider is “prioritize and delegate.” In a world of endless tasks and information, quickly grasping what is or isn’t a priority is key. And, it is a common characteristic among the most successful business owners. They know what’s important and how to delegate what’s not. Again, thanks!
