Success isn’t easy. It takes focus, strategy and hard work.
One big problem I’ve seen over the past 30 years while representing hundreds of entrepreneurs and business owners is the following:
99.99 % of these amazing people are trying to find success the wrong way.
They’re trying to reach this goal by being exactly like everyone else in their occupation, profession or job.
That doesn’t work. It’s not a good formula for success.
As I shared in my short Periscope (live video) below, I believe that if you want success, you must stand out and fascinate others. You’ve got to take the steps, have the courage, and develop a game plan to do things your own and unique way and to become top of mind in all that you do.
Look, when it comes to leadership, branding, marketing, finance, social media, employees, product and business development (and everything in between), most people really don’t know why they’re doing what they’re doing. They blindly duplicate what they see other people do. They’re afraid of missing out.
Don’t copy that person or be that person.
Be unique and do your own things your own way. Don’t let the misunderstood, false and even out-of-date rules of business others blindly follow, hold you back. Fascinate others, stand out, remain top of mind, and travel your own path.
Do this and someday, you’ll look back, and be glad you did.

If you’re interested, I write more about this concept in my new book, “Overnight Success” due out in late 2017.
Three of my favorite books that cover this subject are:
(1) “Stand Out: How to Find Your Breakthrough Idea and Build a Following Around It” by Dorie Clark and
(2) “Top of Mind- Use content to unleash your influence and engage those who matter to you” by John Hall
(3) “Fascinate, Revised and Updated: How to Make Your Brand Impossible to Resist” by Sally Hogshead.
