The best Opportunities are the ones you create

Pessimists don’t believe in opportunities. They only see hype and scam (though in many cases they’re not wrong).

We on the other hand, LOVE opportunities. They bring excitement to our lives BUT, it’s often followed by debt leading to despair.

Then we pick ourselves up and jump on the next one. And we find it oh so difficult to stop.

Every day brings more opportunities. Why? In a word: Direction.

We don’t have one. We think we do, but we’re wrong (and underneath our thick entrepreneurial and optimistic skins we know it).

Here’s a question you’ve probably heard many times:

What exactly do you want your life to look like 12 months from now? Not just your business life, your whole life?

Picture it in your mind. Is it clear? Write it down.

No doubt you’ve done this before and are thinking, “yeah well, done that before and it didn’t change a thing!”

And that’s because you didn’t complete it.

So ask yourself this question: How am I going to make it really happen this time?

 

Quentin Pain

My earliest ambition was to become a rockstar (my band once backed The Waves who went on to win the Eurovision Song Contest). Unfortunately I decided to start a business to support my rock star dream, and as luck would have it, the business took off big time and the rock star dream died. I was 23. By the time I reached 50, my total business count was 6. The last one was Accountz that went from zero to 36,000 customers in 6 years. I now run ProofMEDIA Ltd and my specialism is copy that wins trust, engagement and long term sales. I'm also a published author (including a Dummies title), have won many awards including the IAB Small Business Mentor of the Year, and am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Marketing.
