My tips for the first year of business:

Nentrepreneurs should be hustlers


I am tired of people who outsource every operation in their business and claim themselves Nentrepreneurs.

And I know enough people who does that since day one in business.

The blog design was brought over from paid WP theme club, tweets were posted by freelance social media marketer, site functios were based on what can be obtained from plugins online, blogposts were brainstormed and written by ghost writers; and if that’s not enough, a second class “SEO” was hired from Black Hat forum, to build links.

Yes I see you are no good in design. I see that you are no good in writing. I see you are no good in coding.

And you certainly think you are too good to sit down to read and reply tweets every day.

Someone, from somewhere, is the better person for these jobs.

“So why not just pay them to do that?”

But then…

What is the value in YOU if everything in your business is outsourced?

Why should you win in this game?

Why shouldn’t the freelancers, who do all the hard work, win?

Just because you have a “brilliant” idea doesn’t make you the special one.

And, even if you have the best business idea in the world – its value fades quickly over time and gets drown by new ideas tomorrow.

You are not the only one with ideas.

You look like a fool when you outsource everything and hope that your business will succeed one day.

Miracle like Digg doesn’t come every day.

And, where is Digg now by the way?

You are simply making others rich and wasting the opportunities to develop yourself.

People look up to entrepreneurs because they are hustler. They do whatever is needed to be done to be success. And, they lead with examples.

Think twice before you outsource another task.

Ask yourself – am I outsourcing this because I am lazy? Am I missing the chance to learn?

Are you 1% better than yesterday?

Learn the secret behind Brit's recent success in the Tour de France and why making 1% improvement (even in the tiniest things in life) could make huge differences.

Most people love to talk about success as an event. We talk about losing 50 pounds or building a successful business or winning the Tour de France as if they are events. But the truth is that most of the significant things in life aren’t stand-alone events, but rather the sum of all the moments when we chose to do things 1 percent better or 1 percent worse. Aggregating these marginal gains makes a difference.
