This Episode, #33, is a quick “In-between-isode”. This is when I share some thoughts on the business while on the road.
SHOW NOTES FOR EPISODE #33
To be an Amazon Entrepreneur, you need more than just the right tactics, or even the right strategy. You need to develop the right mindset. But even more basic, you need to develop your fundamental personal qualities.
Get outside the “Amazon Bubble” – get other business people’s perspective. Also get outside the Startup world and get wisdom from the other people in your life.
The 3 main qualities you need are:
Courage- above all, to cope with uncertainty. There’s nothing wrong with having some certainty of income, but you need to deal with uncertainty.
Honesty- with your customers but above all with yourself. Don’t delude yourself! Confront reality (again, courage is needed for this):
Wisdom – which is a very unsexy word for Entrepreneurs but crucial. This develops with experience and I think is the hardest quality to get. But long-term, probably the biggest differentiator between success and failure.
