“A need is what you believe your customers require to solve a problem, and the product or business becomes the mechanism to fulfill that requirement.”
“All of this is vital to define now before you proceed, because what you learn about yourself is going to guide all of your future decisions.”
“Be open to and welcoming of unforeseen events because those unplanned moments are often the seeds of spectacular opportunities in your life.”
“Building a successful business is no longer about B2B or B2C. It’s about P2P, those people-to-people relationships.”
“Good ideas are common, but those who are willing to take action and execute those ideas are far more rare.”
“If you were to start a business completely from scratch, with no ideas in mind, then my answer would be the opposite.”
“In other words, a sure-fire way to predict the future is to take no action at all. When you do nothing, you get nothing.”
“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”
“Products and services we create as entrepreneurs are like elixirs—remedies or cures for certain “diseases” that are plaguing our target market. That analogy has stuck with me ever since.”
“Selling to people through social media is like going to a party, meeting somebody for the first time, and then saying, ‘Hey, do you want to buy this Tupperware?”

“Share items that are relevant to the group and provide value in every post. When you do this, you will get noticed and you will build trust with those who are there.”
“The potential consequence, however, may be that you enter a niche that you’re not really interested in, nor care to serve.”
“The riches are in the niches, but the fortune is in the follow-up.”
“There are risks and costs to action. But they are far less than the long range risks of comfortable inaction.”
“To really know if this is going to work, you need more than just interest, you need a transaction.”
“Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare.”
“What do you need to bring to the lot in order to give oxygen and life back to your audience, which may be tired of the same old stuff or looking for that missing puzzle piece?”
“When you can learn the language of your audience, you can more easily make a connection with them, and ultimately they begin to trust you more.”
“You don’t have to go big in the world to experience success. You just have to be big in somebody’s world.”
“Your earnings are a byproduct of how well you serve your audience, and you can only best serve your audience when you know exactly who they are, what they’re going through, and what will get them to take action.”
