  • Doing it all by yourself with no support or guidance

    The entrepreneurial life is a lonely one.

    You often feel adrift, and it’s not helped by the resistance you get to your ideas from people who don’t share your vision.

    Friends, family, colleagues… they can all play their part in making meaningful progress difficult if not impossible.

    Perhaps the worst and most insidious thing is these people all have opinions, even though they’re worthless because they’re unqualified.

  • Two (or more) heads are better than one

    Working with a likeminded group of peers led by an experienced and knowledgeable mentor.

  • I can remember a time when I was clueless about this whole entrepreneurial thing. All I knew was I wanted to be working for myself, making my own way in life.

    Thing is, I was fighting a battle on two fronts — not only was I struggling to think about what I wanted to do and how I wanted to do it, but my then-wife was negative in the extreme, fighting me tooth-and-nail at every turn, insisting I get a “proper job”.

    It was struggle, I don’t mind admitting.

    Around that time I was fortunate enough — and I use those words carefully — to have my ex run off with someone else (since then she’s booted him out and has had a string of disastrous relationships. Me? Gloating? Sure I am).

    And that meant my back was against the wall. So I jacked in my job and had the kids more or less full-time. Oh, and started the business I’m still running today.

    But it was very different back then: I had no idea what I was doing, I listened to all the wrong opinions and advice, and, worst of all, asked even more opinions of the wrong people.

  • And then something changed for me. It was profound.

    Somehow — and I really can’t remember how — I ended up on a teleseminar. It was $97, as I recall, and at that time I could hardly afford it. But then in the list of recommended books was one by Dan Kennedy. I read it… and I was hooked.

    Within a week I’d joined his Inner Circle, and within a month had booked my place at a seminar in Chicago.

    The reason?

    This guy knew a lot more than I did about growing the kind of business I was in, and, perhaps even more important, I’d be rubbing shoulders with people like just like me and in the same situation.
