What we have found is those who often look like instant successes in business have hours of planning in place before the world know they exist.
As CEO of a corporation who lends a helping hand to those who are starting businesses I know the ones who often do the best are those who have spent hours planning. They come off as professionals from the day they open their doors because they have become professional.
I personally have spent hundreds of hours working with clients putting the necessary visual branding, product testing, audience testing, and the proper advertising in place. Once this was done I taught the business owners how to manage the rest themselves.
For me success wasn't instant, My entrepreneurship started at age 17. With a few times being sidetracked success really didn't start until my late 20's. Like many others I either sold or lost businesses for one reason or another. The first retirement for me came at age thirty five. When an accident took my memory for nine years and put me in a wheelchair for life at age thirty nine, my retirement funds were used to pay medical bills and misused by those who had control. When my memory returned I was broke, deeply in debt, in the process of divorce, and living on disability. Starting over at age 58 was the hardest thing I have ever done. It is my belief success is a combination of mindset and remembering "winners never quit".
