You might not think of yourself as an entrepreneur like Richard Branson (Virgin), or even Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook). You’re working from home trying to make a good income from Fiverr to supplement your lifestyle.
But what if you could the entrepreneurial mind-set to your own benefit? Here’s 10 Commandments that really sum up what success in business is all about. Doubtless you are practicing some already, but which do you need to work on more?
- Be a risk-taker calculated risks offer rewards far greater than the softer option. Step outside your comfort zone
- Conquer your fear a fear of success cripples many—smash through those barriers
- Master your inner boss we’ve all had days where work seems like an unendingly tedious grind. Self-discipline is vital when you don’t have a real boss to yell at you
- hold your faith believe in yourself, your abilities and your right to become successful at what you do
- what comes around, goes around helping others is a key to building a strong network. Don’t expect anything in return: you’re building your social capital here.
- learn from your mistakesif you don’t do this, you’re welcome to keep banging your head on a brick wall
- I love it when a plan comes together make a plan and stick to it. Don’t overthink the plan. Just set it up, execute it and see how it works. Rinse and repeat until success!
- the more you put in, the more you get out constantly be working to improve your knowledge of business processes, your industry and related fields.
- work on data, not feelings make your plans and actions based on scientific
- be a team player business doesn’t have to be lonely—and having a team and helping others makes the journey a lot more fulfilling
These aren’t strictly my tips. I found them on L*nkedIn, home of the online entrepreneur. If you’d like to read a more in-depth account (like, I estimate about 20 pages of info!), just click the link:
One bonus tip from me while you’re over at L*nkedIn is to leverage this social network site to bring business to Fiverr. Write your own insightful articles, or find companies/individuals with problems that your talents can solve. You can then bring them to Fiverr and harvest great reviews from them! This tactic doesn’t just work with Fiverr—it works with your own business too. Just remember: there’s a fine line between spam and helpfulness, so do this on LinkedIn’s forums and spend time building up your brand as an authority in your industry.
I hope all this helps. Now, if anyone has questions, just ask me below—I will NOT respond to any unsolicited spam in my inbox, and you will be reported. OK?
