3. Know what you want, be flexible, and accept change
Robert Anderson, founder, Expert Remedies:
“When I first heard the axiom ‘success consists of a series of small daily victories,’ I wasn’t sure what it meant. Now I know. It’s an essential principle of global expansion. Small daily victories mean getting essential operational details done correctly — step by step. Success happens when you have a viable idea — to be verified by the market — coupled by logical, intelligent execution.
Also key: the business you envision will rarely be the same as how it turns out.
Be flexible and accept change. Use it to your advantage. The market is ruthless, and it may be at odds with what you first think — so be careful. The TV show Secret Lives of the Super Rich might make it all seem so easy, achievable within a month. Don’t fall for it.
You can make it, it just takes unending persistence and a clear vision knowing what you want — and being flexible enough on how you get it. Who knows, maybe I’ll see you on TV one day.”
