If you’re an entrepreneur, business owner or any other kind of professional you know the challenges that you may face reaching your goal. There is a myth out there that your “fancy” startup will get tons of funding from savvy venture capitalists hoping to invest in the latest hot app or business venture. However the truth is that many people won’t even get a fleeting glimpse at a venture capitalists or any of his capital.
In fact most of the capital you will have to obtain will be from your own efforts. The truth is that many times the venture capital game is a closed market among “old friends.” And many groups will even have difficulty securing collateral and loans from traditional sources! So what is an entrepreneur to do? The one tip you’ll need more than all of the others in business, is this:
Don’t give up.
Pretty simple, but pretty profound! You may have to change your method, change your product offering, find a new partner, look for other opportunities or make concessions, but if you stay the course you can win. Become lean, nimbly and wise. There’s a great saying that goes, “Quitters never win and winners never quit!” It’s quite true. You’ve got to keep going no matter what. So no matter where you are in the life of your business, don’t forget to keep pushing. You may be a small fish in a big pond now, but there is no reason why that can’t change. Keep working!
Don’t Give up!
