Hip Hop Affirmation of the The Day#231
“I HAVEN’T COME TO TELL YOU I GOT JUICE; I JUST PRODUCE, CREATE, INNOVATE ON A HIGHER LEVEL.” ~Boogie Down Productions (My Philosophy)
Affirmation of the Day: I am a focused on my strengths and create from there
I am reading “Business Stripped Bare” by Richard Branson. Richard or Sir Richard (yes, he has been knighted by the Queen of England) is a billionaire entrepreneur who started out by creating a student magazine and then starting a record mailing company, then record company, an airline, a railroad, cell phone service. You may be more familiar with his brand, Virgin. You have Virgin Atlantic, Virgin Mobil, Virgin Cola, etc.
Richard Branson hasn’t done too bad for himself considering he is dyslectic and left school at the age of 16. The point is not to run out, leave school and start a business but instead to focus on what you are good at. Unless starting a business is what you feel you’d be good at. With an entrepreneurial spirit, you could follow in Richard Branson’s footsteps. Whilst that sort of success won’t be seen for a few years, your business could be successful quite quickly with the help of some outsourced marketing strategies. Marketing would be essential for anyone planning on creating their own company. There are multiple different marketing strategies, from social media marketing to SEO marketing. It’s believed that both of these would be beneficial for a business, but SEO marketing would probably have to be outsourced to ensure it was done effectively. Companies like Victorious could help a business to succeed by ensuring they have the best links built to their website, increasing their search ranking on Google and bringing more visitors to this site. That’s one way of building a business and making it more successful. However, a business may take a few years to become successful, so it’s not a venture for everyone. If that’s the case for you, it might be worth looking for something else you’re good at. To quote Sir Richard: “It is important to look for your strengths; try to excel at what you’re good at. What you’re bad at actually doesn’t interest people and it certainly shouldn’t interest you.”
Question of the Day: What are you good at?
Action of the Day: Make a list of the things you are good at.
Run the Point from where you are, with what you have.
