How to Build Your Business

You don’t run a business, you are a business. This means you need to do the things you don’t want to do. Most people don’t get successful by just following their heart. Success comes by being disciplined to do the right thing, even when you don’t feel like doing it. That means doing what others refuse to do. View yourself as the owner of a business even if you just work at a place. It will position you for whatever moves you might make in the future. Plus, it will give you the right frame of mind for success.

Here are some tips you can use right away to start growing your business:

1. Look for partnerships

Who can you align yourself with that talks to a lot of people who’ve got money? Get connected with people who have money!

2. Work harder

Add an extra hour. You’ll be underpaid until you’re overpaid. That means you have to do a lot of the hard work now. Expand the amount of time to it and it will grow. Change your operating basis and start hustling more!

3. Hire a Team

This allows other people to do the things that you need to do but don’t make you money. What are you doing in your role right now that you could pay someone $10 an hour to have done for you? Pay someone!

4. Use Social Media More

If you can disseminate information, you can get known. Attention is the name of the game to grow any business. You need to get big and become a celebrity in your space!

5. Training

Get better at what you do. Sometimes the best thing you can do is simply train to refine your skills and sharpen your sword. There’s a reason why all the greats—no matter the industry—train. If you don’t train, you’re satisfied with the status quo and you’ll soon be on the decline.

If you want proof that you don’t need to own your own business to be a business, look how Forbes just put out an infographic showing how billionaires started out:

There are many future billionaires out there right now working for someone else today.

Be great,
