Top tips from the IG Live
- It often costs more to NOT to something than to do something. Certain costs, like the ones you spend on PR and visibility, will help your business so much that they’re a worthy investment. It would cost your business more dearly to not invest in that visibility. Speculate to accumulate!
- Just go for it! Starting a project is the hardest thing, but you can always refine your ideas or products at a later date. The same goes with your own website, blogs or email list. Done is better than perfect! You can always get these things started, and tidy them up at a later date.
- Choose your hard. Everything is hard. The world is tough. There is no easy way to run a business. However, you have to decide what’s worth that ‘hardness’, and how fulfilling it ultimately will be for you. You get to choose what most fills your cup.
- You don’t owe anybody your reasons. You don’t have to justify your own business decisions to anybody else. When you run your own business, the only person you need to impress is you! Success means something different to all of us.
