Persistence:Thoughts of an Entrepreneurial R.E.B.E.L. (Volume 2)
Persistence, the ability to stick with something through adversity, is the fuel required in order to reach the destination of entrepreneurial success. It is those entrepreneurs who hone,refine, and perfect their skill/craft/product/ and service who ultimately win. Persistence affords you the advantage of depth within your company. The great firms of America were forged by trial,error, blood,sweat, and tears. Learn how to master something and expand from that. Narrow your focus and widen the lens as you lay the firm foundations of expertise, intuition, knowledge, and consistent revenue. Find a way to master boredom by finding creative ways to train and practice. People want great outcomes for their businesses,but do not want to perform the required repetitive tasks that will produce the desired result. Persist in learning the ins and outs of your industry, continuous marketing, building networks, inventing and completing products/services, balancing accounting records, planning, organizing, reviewing and filling out business paperwork, perfecting communication skills, strengthening weaknesses, and advancing strengths.
