“Every overnight success has ten years of work behind it.”

There’s a lot of people out there who call themselves entrepreneurs, but they aren’t. They’re glorified managers.

If you’re doing all of the heavy lifting in your company, and just reacting to circumstances thrown at you, you aren’t a real entrepreneur.

You need to take control of the business, not run the business.

Take the time to lift your head, and look at the larger picture. Work on developing strategy, and playing to your strengths.

You, ultimately, want to have a business where if you disappear for a week or two it will continue to run without any problems.

When you’re integral to the day to day operations, you’re still just working a job.

Being “too busy” is often times really just being inefficient.

To dive further into this, I brought you a very special guest: Ted Miller III.

After working with 25,000 entrepreneurs from 24 different countries, Ted Miller IIII has realized there were not 25,000 reasons the business owner would get stuck and stop growing.

Just like you would expect, he heard the same 13 challenges over and over again. Good news is, Ted uncovered distinctions on how to help his client better implement the proven business growth strategies & tactics to grow their business…often double sale in 12 months.

Along the way he was able to partner with many of his mentors, such as Robert Allen, Jay Abraham, Chet Holmes, Tony Robbins and other business titan’s while generating $100MM in revenue through business training, coaching and consulting. He also has his own show, Podcast Business Breakthroughs with Ted Miller III.

  • It’s not about money, it’s about what money can do for us.
  • Are you really working hard or being inefficient?
  • When things get harder you don’t lean in and work harder, you stop and lift your head up.
  • Take the time to think about how to do things more efficiently.
  • Being a perfectionist means you have the lowest standards there is.
  • Just because you own a business doesn’t mean you’re an entrepreneur.
  • Energy is a matter of perspective.
  • Most “CEOs” are actually general managers.
  • I choose what my day is going to look like in advanced.
  • Take the time to identify what it is you really, really want.
  • When you react to what’s happening, you let your day be dictated by someone else.
  • You don’t need to create the solution, you just need to hold the environment where people know the solution exists.
