You Have a Good Idea…Go For It, GRIND

 

Recently on Shark Tank, Mark Cuban said this…watch it on repeat:

“You have a good idea. Go for it! GRIND

Every minute you spend bartending is a minute you’re not selling..you’re not doing a consultation…you’re not getting a client.

Selling on Instagram

But, there is a way to right hook [sell] on Instagram that many people don’t think about enough. The link in your profile. So many people use this space as a place to merely post their website address. But, what if you put up a post saying “New sneakers for sale, link in profile”. Now this is getting interesting.

Bet on your Strengths

Betting on strengths might be the most underrated strategy in modern business. I’m serious. We have an obsession with improvement. We spend time trying to correct weaknesses, when we could be just paying attention to the strengths. Why? Again, I’m talking about a strictly business scenario, because weaknesses in personal and family life should be given attention and care. But in the office, at work, on your team: focus on the strengths.

Go Make a Sale

Daymond John, the founder of Fubu and one of the venture capitalist recently had a post on the importance of making a sale and actually focusing on testing the market and proving there is value in the market.

“One of the biggest mistakes I see entrepreneurs making these days is spending too much time trying to perfect their product, or raise more capital for it, without ever testing it on the market. The only way for you to know if your product is truly sound is to get up, get out there and make a sale….No matter how you do it, this step is absolutely crucial. Stop planning, stop pitching, and go out there and SELL!”
