3 Key Points

  1. If you feel like you’re not cut out for the nine-to-five life, you’re probably right… But becoming a successful entrepreneur doesn’t happen overnight. Get clarity on your vision, then take the first steps…
  2. Everyone has ideas, but few start the journey to making them reality, and fewer follow through. It takes more than a vision for the future—to reach your destination, you need to continuously correct your course and develop a healthy relationship with failure.
  3. If you’re thinking about leaving the corporate world behind, ask yourself these three questions…

           A. What’s the worst that could happen if I tried?

           B. Ten years from now, will I regret not having tried?

           C. What’s the tiniest first step I can take today towards your dream?
