I’m not talking about the top 1% of money earners, which is all relative anyway depending on what you’re referencing, I’m talking about the vocal 1% who don’t get you. You know who I’m talking about; the peers who don’t think you can do something, the customers who are never happy and love telling you about it, the suppliers who never deliver…
These are the vocal ones, the ‘squeaky wheels’, and they are the ones to be careful of.
Because if the squeaky wheels get all the oil, what happens to the other neglected wheels? The wheels who support you, the wheels you love buying from you, the wheels who always deliver for you?
Forget about the 1% and focus on nurturing the 99%, because they deserve it.
Recently I had an interaction with someone in a business I own.
Recently we were making a major decision in MedRecruit for a very important leadership role in the recruitment team.
If you go to almost any personal development or business seminar, the presenters will share stories of failure leading to triumph.
It’s not a shop, it’s not online, it’s not Amazon or eBay or Trademe.
Survival isn’t necessary.
Is it meeting specification?
“You don’t choose the life of being an entrepreneur, it chooses you,” is something I found myself saying to a young entrepreneur the other day.
Dissatisfaction is a common state for entrepreneurs.
Fear of failure is a common reason many people don’t start things.
Failure is inevitable.
