Being involved in many businesses personally, and advising many more, I’ve seen a pattern that commonly afflicts entrepreneurs.
They have a great idea, they execute the idea, and they have a win.
But what’s the worst thing that can happen to you if you visit Las Vegas?
Because success is a bad teacher.
Entrepreneurs who have had a win with an idea often go on to only use their ideas to come up with future plans.
And they usually don’t keep winning. Because an idea is not a plan.
Ideas are important. We must spark ideas with imagination, but if we want to be successful we must fuel them with data.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of these people who loves failure.
Challenges are a daily phenomenon for the entrepreneur.
Heaven is not wanting to be anywhere else.
That brings out our best.
We’ve all heard the statement, the ends justifies the means.
If you want to do anything extraordinary, it’s likely that you’re going to need to break some rules.
Sometimes, I don’t have anything to add.
Recently I was watching a video of our Prime Minister, Jacinda Adern, speaking about women’s suffrage.
