Traits of A Successful Business Owner


We’ve been lucky to work with over 300 business owners now. And what we found is success leaves clues. So here I’m going to share with you 10 traits or 10 things we see in the most successful business owners. So, the first thing is a clear vision or goal, like, where do you want to go? If a space shuttle takes off and it’s going to the moon, if it doesn’t have clear coordinates, there’s no chances that it’s going to get there. So you really, really do need to know where you want to go and document it, you know, that kind of thing? Do you have a good business vehicle? So here we’re talking about Amazon because it’s leverage on a global scale. So with traditional business, you know, selling in a market and then whoever came past that were your customers. Here we’re talking about, well, if we get on a winner, we can literally scale this thing around the world. And very, very quickly, like within a year, realistically. Number three, and you guys are all ticking the box on this, continual learning. So this is so, so, so important. I see some people that think, you know, once they get a certain way along, I’m too good. I don’t need to keep doing this stuff. But I just think just be a continual student of it and just keep getting better and better all the time. Number four, an ongoing focus on mindset. So remember, I said before that your mindset is really your most important part. Tony Robbins says success is as much as 80% mindset. So really, really important. Number five is manage your emotions. So you might think, well, why is he talking about emotions in an Amazon conference? The reason is because business isn’t all smooth sailing, it’s not all just going up like that. You’ve got some real peaks and you’ve got some troughs. And the most successful business owners we meet, they actually manage their emotions like this. They’re not like from really stressed and really, you know, like that kind of thing. So manage your emotions.

first I was like this is kind of weird for a visa but you usually do a cutting
for beginners I’ve been just those are you before I talk about it I talked
about the accounting I love accounting and people watch those so it’s like
those are the easiest for me to make and they get the most views by far right so
every idea when I watch I would such as actually I made a video – I made a video
owning my own business two months in just watch that then a year later about
a year later actually was last October 22nd
Oh first first onto my own business I made was two minutes two months in it
was like August 2015 then like 14 months later it was owning my own business
after one year and that was in October 2016 now we’re just about August 2017
let’s just say another year later I’ve had my business right now uh for about
two years I think August 1st 2015 was like my last day of work I gagging my
two weeks notice for the first time ever felt like a big guy you know like I
wanted to come back the person out who who gave me my CPA license so as you
notice I got my subscribers right there I’m super passionate about the YouTube
that is part of my business and it’s been able to flourish because I left my
job and I’ve been owning my own business so I’ve been able to grow my youtube
channel without fear of somebody saying I don’t like that I’m not I’m not paying
you any more you got to change it because as someone says I don’t like it
no way I’ll give up that y’all will curse a little bit on this one this is
not in kind for beginners this is automotive business this is what you see

videos I made about automotive business at first I was like I don’t have to have
those a lot I did because I watched I watched the first one and I noticed from
the first the second one and hopefully I made progression on this just my my
camera presence just the way I’m talking in my cadence it was very hard for me to
watch the first one and I thought it was such trash I was very happy that I made
progress on my second one and I hopefully I make progress on this one
which I think I will because I’ve been filming a lot lately and the only way to
really get better my opinion filming on camera is just to do it just to practice
practice practice practice like hitting up the team I used to play baseball bro
– but that’s what I came to you know lots of practice and hard work they
don’t hit up a tee one thing that caught me by surprise
Oh anyways the gentleman you keep it the gentleman came in who watches my youtube

some degree because you have to rent you’re paying the rent I’m thinking you
know what brah you’re right you right you know I’m saying

but you’re going to be um below so just try to when you’re really hard to try to
be humble you know try to be humble to try to be nice to everybody and when
you’re low when you’re feeling depressed just just try to get through it try to
be home to try be humble try be nice to everybody and you know just try to get
through it because you’re going to you know you’re gonna be happy again it’s
fine just ride the wave what up I know remember I don’t even care because my
accounting pregunta social structures is supposed to be fun but one of the main
things I said in my own my own business for two months video in 2015 and I would
guess I would know back then I said I was miserable going to my job every day
and I wanted I had I had a passion I was miserable I was miserable going to the
job even though I was making a lot of money I don’t only make much money now –kavitha I’m 40 and I live with my dad
and it is a struggle so in a few years when you’re like Daymond you know he
didn’t in Harry he’s he just ranch in a desert anymore Ackerman man let me tell
you I put other things out of the way I’m in my office I’m in this office like
12 14 hours a day and I love it I love it so I was miserable for and I love it
now I wake up before my alarm at five o’clock half of my days now half of my
days I get up at 3 4 o’clock and I’m just like I’m just so excited about my
day so that’s a that’s a win right there in itself you know was it worth it over
in my own business you have yeah yeah who cares how much money I
mean yeah money’s only thing that matters I mean yes but it’s like money
is the only thing that matters but it’s like are you enjoying getting it that
matters too I mean is that me of all he does a person so check I was miserable
before when I didn’t know my own when I didn’t know my own job check I wanted I
had a passion for YouTube power lifting and accounting and I said hopefully I
can combine all those and make a living you know what it’s two years later and
I’m doing that and yeah the only the thing is so YouTube is my new is my just
new passion I wake up I learn better i love youtube I don’t know if independent
anybody I did a whole process by myself from the idea to filming the idea to
having the furnished product on YouTube I don’t have to wait for anybody on
confer with anybody it’s just however hard I want whatever the work I want to
put into it is the results that I get and I haven’t really found too many
things in life like that cpa test yes so i was miserable before when i was those
before and i have passion for youtube account and power listener i want to
combine all those well yes i’m doing that because if i used to most of my
youtube is teaching accounting and accounting for beginners and so and no
my now my youtube is about a third of my monthly take-home as as much as my
regular business so the youtube’s growing and i’m so passionate about that
and i get to talk about I love accounting and passing road so
thanks to the third one powerlifting well paraffins taking a little backseat
right now because I really just want to make I really just want to grow my
youtube channel in essence make more money so I can afford to kind of get out
of this office get out of my dad’s house and just have one you know a nice place YouTube studio / house / everything and
that’s what I’m working towards everyday and I’m just I’m just so happy I know
this was kind of a roundabout way but a roundabout video I just I feel like
making notes for it I did just want to catch those the facts that call you by
the first ones like I was saying you know the reason why I made a change in
everybody am I going to follow my face or I had no idea two months in I was I
had about a thousand dollars in bills a month and I was making I don’t know like
two or three hundred a month so I was so upside down how do I get clients that’s
that’s what someone will you know how do you get clients how did you get the
money coming in well I’m consistent I get up i I never missed anything when I
first started I answered I answered every phone call and know half of it was
trash every Facebook message every every everything every everything I answer
every email every you know I followed up with everything I said what I would do
I went above and beyond a little – I was a little cheap you know I he every oh
you’re too cheap you’re too cheap well I would rather
I wasn’t doing anything I’m just sitting here twiddling my thumbs and I have
bills I’d rather be doing something you know honing my craft sharpening my
skills you know games play GP you know referrals for a cheaper price instead of
nothing you know like I would rather I would rather charge somebody 150 bucks a
month to do a bunch of things they think that’s a great deal and they do it as
opposed say oh I need $500 a month and then not find anybody or but I guess I
went artificially low then I turned to wait people last year’s oh so busy and
now now next year or from from now on where I don’t need any more clients
because I’m paying my bills making a teensy bit of money now the price will
go up I only taught this is 16 minutes long generally talking about on my own
business for two years but if maybe I’ll have a better maybe I’ll have a better
video next year some more precise or something like that but you’ve even
talked about the business fine I mean I guess I guess I did the feeling the
feelings of it I think you know I think the main thing is I look back and that
was I made that video the first video two months in you know two months I’ve
quit my job I worked at that job for about two years
hated it hated it hated it yeah and so those were all my job you spend most
time at your job you have so much time at your job so as visible my job
miserable my life now can’t I love my job I can’t wait to get up in the
morning so that’s a win till next time till next year deuces

HOW TO START BUSINESS WITH NO MONEY ? | REWORK | कम पैसे मई बिज़नेस करे



Hello Friends, Most of the people think that starting a business is very difficult it's difficult to be an Entrepreneur many people think that business requires lot of investment, lot of hard work, need to take financial risk need to leave job, and many such difficult thing needs to be done in a business which isn't possible for everyone to do it but author of this book, who himself is a very successful businessman who runs million dollar software company since 20 years, he says that such believe related is business is wrong, it's a myth problem is when most of the people think about business,they directly think about creating a BILLION DOLLAR business like TATA, ELON MUSK, BILL GATES, AMBANI But authors says that at start it will be best for people to create a side business which is profitable and sustainable which generates a good side income for you author says that creating side business is something which people can do easily without losing current job and studies and don't need to invest much In this book author has shared different-different principles which he had learned through his years of experience and after following those principles anyone can start a successful business and i have shrink that into a magic sentence, you can call it a startup mantra which is somewhat like SCRATCH THE ITCH WITH CORE MINIMUM AND FIGHT PASSIONATELY WITH LESS Actually in these sentence 4 principles are hidden which i will explain to you one bye one first principle SCRATCH THE ITCH Vic Firth was a great drum player of a very good orchestra group after playing drum for many years he noticed one thing which frustrated him a lot the thing which used to irritate him was, which ever drumsticks he used to use to play drum wasn't similar to each other, both sticks used to be different from each other in terms of density & weight because of it that drum never produces same level of pitch and sound this thing used to irritate him a lot Hence what he did in order to solve this problem, he went to his basement did research and created same density, weight and pitch drumsticks after which he named those drumsticks as THE PERFECT PAIR His Drumsticks became so famous that today his Company which creates Drumstick owns 62 percent of Drumstick market and dominates the market similarly, Bill Bowerman who was a Track Coach when he wasn't getting a light weight perfect shoes in the market for his students then he himself went to a local work shop and he himself created a light weight and strong shoes which was liked by almost everyone and from then on Nike Company has started and today almost everyone knows about Nike company and brand similarly, even author started a consulting firm in the start when he was handling lots of projects of different companies at that time he realised and noticed in order to manage so many projects there is not perfect tool available in the market hence in order to tackle this problem what he did with his partners he created a software which can easily manage all the projects, and it was a very useful creation therefore every company was in need of that software hence many companies started buying his software and this way his business became successful and today he is earning in millions if you notice in all three examples, then you will come to know that everyone felt some problems in their lives, they felt some itch in their lives, and to tackle or to overcome that itch they came up with a useful solution, similarly even you notice in your day-to-day life what problems you are facing and how to can overcome that problem through a useful and perfect product your main aim should be solving a real problem and it would be best if you have your own problems because when you find solution for your own problems chances of understanding it properly becomes high and because of which you can take quick and better decisions while creating a product sometimes searching others problem solution can be like shooting an arrow in the dark second WITH CORE MINIMUM i will ask you a question, suppose you want to do a Burger Business what is the main thing requires to convert this idea to a successful business what is the thing without which you can't have a successful business what you required the most is it a shop employees or anything else well obviously the most important thing which you need to start a successful business will be your BURGERS Your burgers should be the best, no matter how good or bad your shop or employees are people will come to eat only when you have best quality burgers hence here tasty burgers will be the core of your business and at start your maximum focused should be on your core maximum people has the same problem, they put their focus time energy and money on other things instead of having a maximum focus on their core lack of core focus at start isn't a wise choice or decision example, When author started his Basecamp business, at that time he focused on core & invested very less they didn't opened their own office they used a shared office space they didn't used many servers, they used just one good server they didn't hire customer support team, they themselves answered mails and calls similarly even you should focus on must have things not on nice to have things having a good degree is something nice to have, whereas you can learn various things on google and youtube it's good to quit your job and start a business but maximum time you can handle both just by removing some extra time, instead of wasting your time of television useless shows and on social media and procrastination, you can save that time and utilise it on handling your business Taking an investment from outside is good but you can create something great at home just by using some cheap and free things the most important thing is that in today's technology or in digital world doing things have become very easy things which were tough earlier is possible today with the use of computer hence ask yourself or better write it down, what are the must things you require to start a business after writing thoroughly notice everything and see like seriously you need it or not or you can use alternative cheap things to start your business example, when i was thinking about starting my seeken channel at that time i would have thought that before starting a channel let me first learn animation through classes, or i should learn to create videos on camera or i should save to buy an expensive mic only after all this i should start a channel, but i haven't thought about all these nice to have things because i knew that my youtube videos core will be book summaries therefore i bought cheap but good quality mic, i searched a good animation software for which i didn't have to invest on camera or on other things i just focused on my core, i focused on my videos content and you all can see the results Third Fight Passionately when you start a business after removing a solution of any problem by a minimum investment then the next question will come how you will look different in the crowd how you will stand out. so that others will choose your business well the best way through which you can make it possible is by fighting with your competitor brand example, Dunkin donuts used to do market themselves as An Anti Starbucks they focus more on the fact that they are not like starbucks they never give fancy names to their cups like starbucks in fact they have created a website known as dunkinbeatsstarbucks.com where visitors send cards in which they writes a real friend doesn't allow other friend to waste their money on Starbucks etc, similarly, Audi Did marketing as Anti-old luxury cars they go beyond their limits and make fun of Lexus Mercedes brand in their ads and says that they are just not like them few days back i have seen an ad of 7up which is a Pepsico company brand in that ad it says that how today's generation isn't clear in anything and we are just like this only by making such ad they are directly or indirectly challenging the other brand Sprite which is of cocacola company, sprite usually talks opposite of 7 up ads, sprite says "SPRITE CLEAR HAI" You will notice these two and many other companies fight with each other why because they know that we human love to take sides, and when we take side of anything we emotionally get attached to those things hence if you say what you believe in and challenge to those who doesn't have believe like you then this thing will attract those people who have similar believe like you people with same believe will support you and also use your product fourth WITH LESS Harvard Cambridge are considered as some of the best universities in the world but have you ever thought even after being so successful why these universities never open their different branches in different countries, because for them it's not a big deal but still they don't open their branches, because they know it's good to compete with less because they know if they start different branches in other countries then their quality and their image will not remain the same most of the businesses you will they are just busy competing with numbers they feel it is good to have more, more employees in the office, more features in the product and they even feel that if they have more food items in their menu then their restaurant will work more author says that such thinking is totally wrong example, author tried two coffee shops which was near his house first coffee shop which he tried, he used to get confuse just by looking that coffee shop menu because that menu has so many different types of coffee written on it even after trying almost every coffee he didn't feel good, because of lack of quality but when he tried second coffee shop, there they used to sell only 4 types of coffee choosing coffee there was easy but the best part was quality of the coffee, quality was the best reason their quality was best because they used to focus on making those few items the best and as the result author always used to go to that coffee shop you will notice most of the people make the same mistake, if their competitor give 2 feature in their product then they will give 3, if competitor gives 3 then they will give 4 such competition reduces their product quality and also decreases their profit if they focus on few things and make sure to give the best quality in that few thing then their profit will improve for sure and also they will have a successful business if they focus on few things and it's quality then they will able to compete with big fish they will face success by focusing on quality not by focusing on numbers. hence even you must compete with less at start by this you will save more money, will have more profit and soon you will face success With these 4 principles, one magic sentence is made which you must always remember STRETCH THE ITCH WITH CORE MINIMUM AND FIGHT PASSIONATELY WITH LESS Before ending this video book summary, one extra bonus principle or lesson which author teaches us is that maximum people say that we must learn from our failures but reality is we can never learn what we must do from our failure instead from our failures we can only learn what we should never do again author say in order to learn what you must do, you should learn from success and from people who are doing successful business only then you'll able become successful and same thing even i teach in my seeken channel through book summaries and mentors so that our failure chances reduces and we improve in our lives and face success soon and easily these were some amazing knowledge from an amazing book Re-work By Jason about which Billionaire mark
