  1. Wake up every morning inspired and ready to begin the day – if you are on this page, then you are more than likely on the right track!
  2. Become passionate about a hobby or job path that you desire. There is a way less likelihood of you succeeding in your business without having any passion behind it. Passion is what will drive you to show up to the office or crank out the late night work sessions when your business isn’t doing so well.
  3. Take the time needed to fully educate yourself on the business or field that you want to pursue. It’s not what degrees you have, or where you went to school, it’s how you apply the knowledge that you learn that truly propels you ahead of the crowd.
