“Success is the sum of small efforts – repeated day in and day out.” – Robert Collier
Success is almost never instant – you must work towards it each day. Remember this as you work through the day-to-day at your job – each item you check off your to-do list is another step towards success. In order to reach success, find ways to organize your small goals in order to make long-term goals more attainable. Next time you start a task, think about this quote and break your task up into smaller and smaller tasks in order to reach goals sooner. Having goals in reach will create more motivation, as you will always be only a sprint away from the finish line.
"The first essential, of course, is to know what you want." – Robert Collier
This inspirational quote is also applicable to the world of business in a similar way. Knowing what you want and where you want to go is essential to a successful business. This includes knowing what you want to sell, who you want to sell to, and where you want to sell it. Finding the right product or service to sell is difficult, but generating ideas from your own experience can be a great way to start. The right target audience is also a key feature. Is your ideal customer young, old, active, traveling, etc.? Determining who your ideal customer is will make figuring out where to sell your product or service much easier. Selling a product can be done both online and off, so the first step is determining if your store needs a physical presence, or if the web and social media will suffice.
