13 Entrepreneur's Secret to Success

Thirteen Entrepreneurs Secret to Success

I selected my favorite top 13 Success Secret from the Entrepreneur Magazine's Hot 100 List in the August issue (the online link has all 500 companies)

1. DivX Inc.: The ability to embrace an unforeseen opportunity and have the patience to ride the waves to see the vision realized

2. Lifted Research Group: Passion, hard work and surrounding myself with great people. Also listening to my heart rather than my pocket.

3. Reflectx Services: Having an experienced, talented and dedicated team with common core values and the willingness to flex to meet market needs in spite of the business plan.

4. Goodman Networks: Having passion and desire for what we do along with an entrepreneurial spirit and an optimistic outlook on life.

5. Road King Trailes Inc.: Stay focused on your goals and products; don't just focus on what your competition is doing.

6. Hazen Construction LLC: Delivering projects as promised with a high level of quality in order to have the best reputation.

7. TC Consulting Inc.: It is the pursuit of excellence, never settling. It is the ability to live without regret. Being able to succeed is to never be content and always keep the ambition machine full of fuel.

8. Vineyard Vines: Success is having fun and loving what you do.

9. ExactTarget Inc.: Succcess means creating something that adds value--every minute of every day.

10. Journeyman Construction Inc.: See not hurdles--see opportunities

11. Albar Precious Metals: Listening to the advice of other successful people. It's very easy to get an ego--I've found the best way to achieve success is to surround myself with successful people.

12. Tavant Technologies Inc.: Keep customers satisfied, keep employees happy and constantly strive to get better at what you do.

13. North American Building Inc.: Plan your work and work your plan. Never say it can't be done. Resourcefulness produces results.

I can't find the quote I heard a long time ago but it amounted to "Be the right size not the expected size"

I think #2 says it best! If you cannot listen with your heart you will not go far. :) Great TT, have a happy weekend!

Eight things about me are:

1) I meditate about 1 1/2 hours per day.
2) I visualize how I would like my day to play out before each day.
3) I have a 10 year plan towards financial freedom.
4) Rich Dad, Robert Kiyosaki, is my idol.
5) I just started golfing this year and understand how people get hooked on it.
6) I sleep with a flashlight next to my bed and dream it is a gun.
7) I feel incredibly strong about the Whygosolo launch.
8) This whole internet making friends thing is new to me.

I would love to create a top 100 books for Entrepreneurs. The one I would put on top would be Blue Ocean Strategy which I think illustrates how to incorporate a lot of these ideas
