Don’t Allow Excuses to Cancel Your Success: Tips for aspiring entrepreneurs

I recently sat down with Zachary Rinkins from the Rinkins Report  and offered three tips for prospective entrepreneurs:


1. Don’t Make Excuses: I learned a long time ago that excuses are tools of incompetence. A lot of us get stuck and get in the way of GOD’s blessings because of fear and the excuses we tell ourselves. Stop the excuses and start executing the necessary steps to create your vision.”


2. Done is better than perfect:                   I started with two lip lacquers on Shopify. As a perfectionist I wanted the thousand dollar e-commerce site with all the bells and whistles. I’ve learned that you must make the most out of the resources that are at your disposal and build from there. You will never know how the marketplace will respond to your product if you never launch it. Once you get responses from the marketplace, you can begin to make adjustments to ensure continued growth and success.
