Powerful Quotes If you can walk away from your business for 30 years and it still gonna run, you’re an entrepreneur. If you have to be at your business all the time, you’re still self-employed. Everbody losses. At the end of the day is how many more wins are stocked above the losses. When I do a mistake, I learn from it and don’t do it again. If fear grows and the less chances you take, the more fear happens, the less wins you have. You can teach somebody the skills. You can teach somebody the tools. But you can’t teach them the hustle. A lot of people don’t realize your environment could impact who you are. You have to have a purpose and passion for what you are doing. Surround yourself with the right people and take chances. Don’t be scared to put yourself online. Prepare yourself for the worst-case scenarios at all times and be ready to put in the work.
