Three Big Answers

Be Willing To Burn The Ships
Be Willing To Burn The Ships

Unrelated to yesterday’s post about questions, wanted to share some very interesting answers from a man on the plane a few days ago.

He appeared to be a very successful business man. Not by the way he dressed, but by the way he talked. So I asked him, “What advice would you give to someone starting their own business?”

1.  You must have unquenchable passion for the “failure is not an option” attitude.

2.  You should not borrow money to finance your business. Early on it becomes too big a burden.

3.  Never be afraid to ask anyone anything.

He’s doing well at what he loves.  His office is attached to his home, and overlooks a pond in the mountains of North Carolina.
