It Starts With a Dream…

dream_big_300
One thing all of us entrepreneurs have in common is a big dream that we desperately want to see come into fruition. We grind, hustle and sacrifice day in and day out in order to make sure such dreams are brought into reality. We hold the belief that if the dream can be envisioned then it is attainable. It all starts with a dream and we will continue to keep this dream alive until the day we wake up to it. Read the rest of this entry

The Juggling Act

I got to do this, I got to do that. I have to be here, I have to be there. I have to start this, I have to finish that. As an entrepreneur it seems you have to be everywhere at one time and do a million things in the 24 hours allowed in a day. While you are doing one thing you are thinking about something else that needs your attention. It can be a stressful position to be in but it is something we entrepreneurs indulge in, in hopes to capture a percentage of the marketplace and to say we did it. Read the rest of this entry

The Psychology Behind the Praise of Failure

Failure
Have you ever wondered why failure is so highly praised in entrepreneurship? It is like a badge of honor to say you have failed along your entrepreneurial journey but kept pushing forward.

1st Quarter Progress Report

making progress
The first quarter of the year has just ended. What did you achieve? Did you stick to previously planned initiatives and if so how are you faring? As we enter into the second quarter of 2014 it is time to examine what is working and what is not working. Taking this time to reflect instead of proceeding forward with no regard helps to ensure you are being efficient with your time.

The Art of Hustling as An Entrepreneur

HustleTank-frontflat-blkwsh
Hustling is such a dirty, deceitful word to some people. People equate hustling with cunning schemes and calculated measures to swindle people out of their money. For a small percentage of “hustlers” that may be true but the hustling which I speak of is solely based on hard work towards positive production. Some call it grinding, some call it no sleep; whatever the term it all relates to the same thing: Getting shit done! Read the rest of this entry

Excuse Me. Can I Have Your Attention Please?

attention
Do you ever feel like you and your business are being overlooked in the marketplace? You know you have the best products and service but you just can’t seem to garner the attention you know you deserve. You notice that people who are not as skilled as you have a never-ending flow of customers and you are barely making ends meet. “What am I doing wrong?” you ask yourself. Read the rest of this entry

What Did You Accomplished This Week?

accomplishment
What did you accomplish this week? The end of the week should always be used as time to reflect upon what you did and did not accomplish which you had originally set out to achieve at the beginning of the week. At the beginning of the week we are so pumped and focused to get things done and be productive but by the end of Monday (maybe the middle for some) we are counting down the time till the weekend comes. And the funny thing is we do the same process over and over again. Saying we want to achieve this and that in order to be successful but yet do not put in the work required to do so. It’s a never-ending cycle that we stay revolving within because we equate the continual huff and puff as motivation to do something…eventually. Read the rest of this entry

It’s My Vision and I Need it Now!

vision
As entrepreneurs we can best be described as vivid dreamers. We imagine the biggest most fascinating visions and plot as to how we can make them a reality. Our desire to live out our vision fuels us to do anything possible and “impossible” to make our dream something we live within. It can all be so frustrating though and makes us want to shout, “It’s my vision and I need it now!” Read the rest of this entry
