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.
