Depending on which statistics you read, you’ll discover that anywhere between 50% and 80% of businesses fail within the first five years; and up to 96% fail within the first ten. I myself was one of the people that got it wrong within 2 years, when I had my first company, Travelblag.
The reality is, building a successful business is not easy. The 96% who don’t succeed work just as hard as the 4% who do. They put in the same number of hours and are both equally dedicated to their businesses, yet their output is not the same.
While hard work is the underlying factor required for the success of any venture, it takes much more than resilience and back-breaking work to build a successful enterprise.
In this guide, I share 10(ish) simple ideas that will help you run your business like the 4%. So if you find yourself constantly putting out fires and feeling like there aren’t enough hours in your day, implementing these 10 ideas should help you work smarter and more efficiently, and help you grow your business.
