Most of us reading this post can only dream of earning just a fraction of this amount of money, however if you shoot for the stars & only reach the moon that wouldn’t be too bad at all.
A common attribute the above entrepreneurs all have is the courage to believe in themselves, identify gaps & opportunities ant to pursue their goals through thick & thin, which is exactly what average joes like you & me should do.
I have learned in my businesses that thinking big pays massive dividends in the long run – if you’re limited in your aspirations & don’t have lofty goals the chances are you won’t ever make loads of money or consider yourself wealthy & financially well off.
I have often been criticized for “charging like a wounded buffalo” but I always say provide added value & then charge what your product or service is worth rather than selling yourself short.
For instance, I would rather have 10 happy clients paying $1000 each than 50 sales $200 each – 10 transactions will always be far more profitable for much less work.
