To make money, and lots of it, my philosophy is a simple one: Look for ideas with high profit margins in niche markets, and then “go where the money is.” One of my favorite sayings is, “There are ideas out there that haven’t been thought of yet, so why not be the one to come up with that new product or service that makes sense and money at the same time?”
Being an entrepreneur, however, requires more than just coming up with ideas that either haven't been thought of or are better than ones that currently exist. Being an entrepreneur requires persistence and a fearless "I don’t care approach" when people tell you it can't be done. If you have been through the testing process for your product or service and it has met the financial criteria you established, never let anyone tell you it can't be done.
And being an entrepreneur isn’t all about making money either. For most successful entrepreneurs it is more about the challenge and, ultimately, giving back. That’s why I’m so passionate about sharing my entrepreneurial success secrets with others. It’s my way of giving back.
Finally, while entrepreneurship is not for everyone, understanding what goes into being an entrepreneur will help anyone working for a company. Why? Because intrepreneurship (the art of thinking like an entrepreneur) has become a word employers increasingly value in their employees.
So allow me to share with you the secrets to being a successful entrepreneur.
