21 lessons from an ACCIDENTAL ENTREPRENEUR

Chic

I know a few people who blog have left their current employment to try and make it on their own. I am one of them and i really do believe that one day I will succeed and make money doing what I love and be my own boss.  Hopefully sooner than later. I love blogging and have a dream to have my own online store. I came across these lessons on life hack and hope they will help us all along the way to being successful.

Is there anything you would add to this list?
  1. Give yourself a pep talk in the morning. Every morning. In the mirror.
  2. Optimise your best hours. Often, this is in the morning. 
  3. Take care of yourself! 
  4. Work smart, not hard.
  5. Friends are either lifting you up or bringing you down. Nurture the former and stop worrying about the latter.
  6. You do not have to do everything. Identify your strengths and find other people to do the rest.
  7. Stick to a routine. Eliminate decisions.
  8. Track your time.
  9. Invest in learning. Invest in anything that will help you to develop your skills or teach you how to turn them into a business.
  10. The world is not your competition. We’re all in this life thing together.
  11. People are busy. Respect their time. Don’t expect them to remember anything if you don’t take time to remind them.
  12. NEVER use marriage or children as an excuse for not going after your dreams.
  13. Look outside of your industry for inspiration.
  14. Start before you’re ready.
  15. Don’t wait until your parents die to start living your truth. (May sound shocking, but an alarming number of people do this).
  16. People will judge, critique, and advise you. You don’t have to listen.
  17. On that note – only take advice from people whom you admire. 
  18. Be. Confident.
  19. People only really care about what’s in it for them. Make someone else feel like gold and you can’t go wrong.
  20. Jump! The parachute might not appear, but you aren’t going to die. In fact, you’re going to learn more than you ever could have by reading about it.
  21. Don’t forget why you’re doing what you’re doing. Always start with why. Are there any lessons you would like to add to this list?
