Are You A Successful Business Owner?
Updated: Sep 24
If you want to ask yourself whether you’re a successful business person, ask:
“Do I solve problems for people and businesses and get paid more money than it costs me to operate?”
Not, “Am I making more money than other business owners?” or “Am I building multiple streams of income?” or “Do I have an impressive annual turnover metric?”
Many business owners can boast of 7-fig or 8-fig turnover but spend as much as they earn [if not more] to keep the machinery running.
Just like writers must ask themselves daily “Am I writing?” instead of “Am I published?” or artists should ask “Am I creating” instead of “Am I celebrated and known?”
So too, being a successful business person is simple.
Solve problems [by providing products and services] as efficiently as possible.
Get paid in such a way that you can do solve more problems and help more people.
