We wanted to step back, and take a dive into one of the critical tips we shared in our first article, why. It is a simple, yet insightful question. Your why will have to be bigger, stronger, and more resilient than any of the obstacles you encounter when operating your own enterprise. Like fingerprints, no two people’s why will be the same, but will be an identifying factor for yourself in your success. As you will learn, we love our list here at The Start Up Group, so check out what we have identified as some items to consider in regards to your WHY.
There you have it. Emerge yourself in your why. Write it down, hang it on the wall, save it as your background; do whatever you need to do, to have laser focus towards your goals and dreams. Your business will thank you for it. We can’t find your why for you, but we’ll be glad to talk through it with you. Contact us as email@example.com.
In the spirit of the MLB Playoffs and our love for movies, we decided to drop the signature catchphrase from The Field of Dreams that states, "If you build it, they will come." This mentality is a common reason that many startups will ultimately fail. In fact, nine out of ten startups will fail. Why, you ask? Most entrepreneurs have an optimistic and blinded outlook and truly believe that if they "build it," success "will come." The reality is that only 10% of startups will survive and find success. Survival of the fittest at it's best. There are various characteristics that will allow a business to set themselves apart from their competition. Here are a few tips that The Start Up Group really believes in.
