You know the song by AJR, “can we skip to the good part” isn’t that what we all want in business? 

We want the freedom to live our lives, the money to pay for it, and the lifestyle we see on TV in shows or movies! 

What you don’t see is the entrepreneur behind the scenes doing the work needed to get to the good part! 

When I was in my first 3 years of business, there were days I wondered what the heck I was missing because I did not think I signed up for 80+ hour work weeks, sleepless nights, and empty bank accounts at times!  Was that in the fine print? 

So, I went on a search to figure out what made some entrepreneurs more successful than others and I found a few things that I am sharing with you today! 

Finding #1 – There is no skipping to the good part!  Yes, I am starting with a reality check!  What looks like an overnight success, most likely is not.  Maybe an entrepreneur’s 2nd, 3rd, or 4th business had a faster start, but you can’t forget about the many years they put in prior to where they learned the skills they have today!

Finding #3 – Understand the power in pivots!  Sometimes life does not go as planned and as an entrepreneur, you need to pivot and learn to do it fast and simply!  If you are not willing to shift in your business due to market demands, world changes, and industry needs, then you will be left behind.  A successful entrepreneur learns how to pivot their business so they can remain on top! 

Finding #4 – An overnight success story usually comes from consistent action!  How did I build a million-dollar business? By making 40 one on one visits to referral sources in my community for TWO WHOLE YEARS!  How do you grow your social media community?  By posting daily!  This my friend is the BIGGEST SECRET TO SUCCESS!  If you want to scale your business to the point that you look like an overnight success, you must be consistent!  And not just in your daily tasks, but in the tasks that move the needle forward. Forget the fluff and do the income-producing tasks daily! 

So that’s the 4 findings my research over and over showed me!  If you want to grow your business at a faster pace, think about how you can implement those 4 findings sooner, rather than later! 

In summary, there is no such thing as overnight success in business!  On the outside, it may look like that, but most likely it is not the truth!  Legacy businesses are built with solid foundations, that allow for consistent growth!  And frankly having a business that could scale overnight would scare the heck out of me, because if it can scale that fast upwards, what is possible if it shifted downwards???  So, stop wishing your business was like Suzie Q’s on Instagram, and start doing the work on yourself and your business today!
