If you’ve read business books, online articles or things of that nature you’ve heard inspiring stories of successful business ventures gone right. What you don’t realize is that represents about 1% of what business owners really experience. I mentioned in a prior episode that the fail rate for a first time business is 80%. Those are the statistics that don’t get publicized because it doesn’t “sell” well.

What you should really be taking a closer look at is a successful serial entrepreneur. Someone who has taken his/her formula and plugged it into several businesses over and over again with positive results. The business (or the product) gets the glory, but the recipe for success is actually the process repeated.

In this episode, I’ll share the following examples:

How Terry made the transition from real estate to restaurants seamlessly

What a special recipe and unique selling point have in common

How we think of businesses “backwards”

The role of a system and how it can transform your business

After listening to this episode, what ingredients are in your recipe for success? Has your focus on your dream changed? If so, how?

Ever since I became a business owner, I assumed I had to do everything. I’m the coach, marketing department, sales team, operations director, etc. But recently I’ve been reading a book written by a friend called Dream Year and it made me rethink how I spend my time. Ben Arment, the author, poses the question: Are you the artist or the producer?

In this episode, I’ll share my insights that I’ve learned about:

  • The difference between an artist and producer
  • Which one you are suited more towards
  • The myth about chasing your dreams
  • What you need as your dream gets bigger

So which one are you: the artist or the producer? Who do you need to surround yourself with to accomplish your dreams? Please share your thoughts below!
