People waste about ten years of their life getting their hair cut, sitting in waiting rooms, brushing their teeth, etc.
You can use your downtime to get things done. Everything comes to those who hustle while they wait.
You have to have a capital objective to make your idea profitable.
Steve Wynn is a great example; he currently owns half of the hotels on the Vegas Strip. He started just like everyone else, but he knew how to grow his brand.
He had a plan.
There are certain steps you have to follow if you want to grow your business.
Step 1: Have a strategy and a plan.
Step 2: Be realistic in your capital objective – know the minimum amount of money you’re going to need to start.
Step 3: Make an approach plan – have at least ten people you can go to for an investment. There’s a good chance one person will be able to invest in you.
Step 4: Thicken up your skin – don’t get discouraged and take everything personally.
