The last few years I have heard many people say that they are holding back from opening a new business or starting a new marketing plan because the economy is down. Are you kidding? Now is the perfect time to take a risk. The muscles that you will develop becoming successful during times like this will ensure that you skyrocket when the “economy” turns around. Sure, you have to be more disciplined, more creative and pay a higher level of attention to the details, but shouldn’t we be doing that anyway?
To confirm my opinion, today I read a fabulous quote by Gary Vaynerchuk in his book Crush It. Gary writes, “It’s never a bad time to start a business unless you’re starting a mediocre business.”
So don’t be mediocre. Be passionate, work harder/smarter than you’ve ever worked before (and because you are passionate, you will love every moment of it), and go BIG.
What do you want to do more than anything else in 2011?
I want to transform my traditional mortgage company into a huge, loyal tribe of enthusiastic followers who eat possibility, drink self improvement and breathe contribution to others. As a result of their life change they become my most valuable and passionate sales force inspiring everyone they know to be apart of the City Creek Family.
We will CRUSH IT in 2011!!!
