Oh, I wished we all were. Let me tell you there are very few people in this world who are ‘Lucky In Business’. About the only people who are lucky are those who have invested in a lotto ticket and won the big one.
Anyone else I know has had to put their heart and soul, and many, many hours of hard work into what they do before they have made a lot of money! Along they way they may have had some little windfalls and made some OK cash as they go, but to make BIG MONEY they need to have put in lots of work, usually over several years. In fact one business owner I know says, “The harder I work, the luckier I get!”
I always look at it this way.
If you go to university you spend 3-5 years learning what you should be doing in your chosen field, but if you go the ‘University of Hard Knocks’ then you will most likely spend about the same period of time before you are making the same money they are!
The difference is that you have had some experience along the way whereas they have not!
Experience Counts For A Lot
If you are going to start a business in which you have no experience then you can expect a very slow growth from the beginning unless you employ a person with the required skills, but if you start a business with say, 10 years experience in that type of business behind you, not only will you have contacts, but you most likely will know some potential clients as well so your start in the business should be a lot quicker by comparison.
It is hard work and determination that will get a person to where they want to go or achieve what they want to achieve. A small business operator needs both of those attributes to be successful.
