Small Business Success: The Action Connection

>“Be patient and calm - for no one can catch fish in anger.” - Herbert Hoover

Becoming a successful entrepreneur may rely more on perseverance than skill. The development of a business plan needs to allow room for initial failure and financial difficulties.

Many entrepreneurs go without a paycheck for a significant period of time as they work to establish a business for the future.

"Energy and persistence conquer all things." - Benjamin Franklin

As an entrepreneur you have the opportunity to work at solving problems by creating solutions in a manner that conveys both enthusiasm and concern for the customer.

The primary reason many start up businesses fail is the business owner gave up too soon. It could be these individuals worked into a grove that caused them to lose an edge in the development and growth of their business or they failed to keep learning.

Entrepreneurs must blend a mix of marketing with innovation marinated in concentrated perseverance. A healthy appetite must always be brought to the table and you must always believe that the recipe is a good one.

“People of mediocre ability sometimes achieve outstanding success because they don't know when to quit. Most men succeed because they are determined to.” - George Allen

Many successful entrepreneurs can pinpoint a time when they believe sheer luck propelled them from a hungry, yet inexperienced, entrepreneur to a successful businessperson. The need for perseverance should not be minimized. You can go into a business venture with significant startup capital and still fail if you don’t possess the drive or desire to make the business work.

“A man of sense is never discouraged by difficulties; he redoubles his industry and his diligence, he perseveres, and infallibly prevails at last.” - Lord Chesterfield

One of the chief questions you should ask yourself is whether you have the ability to hold on in the toughest of times. If the answer is no, you might not be ready to immerse yourself in entrepreneurialism. If the answer is yes you may have one of the hardest, most enjoyable roads ahead as you work to carve reality from a dream.

“Success seems to be connected with action. Successful men keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don't quit.” - Conrad Hilton

When moving forward with a business, make sure to keep moving forward. You will make mistakes, but it is what you learn from them that motivates you to a better course of action. Remember, nothing spells defeat like indecision.
