THE TRUTH ABOUT START UPS – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

What makes a start up is a company that is made to grow. Here at Success4 we see how impatient people have become, how putting up a new facebook page and taking a few pictures of yourself speaking at an event suddenly makes you an Entrepreneur, this is insanity and dangerous.

Your social media ‘Character’ is your shop window. Its the way to get people into your shop by showing those who are strolling (or scrolling) pass what you have on offer, what your values are and how you CAN HELP THEM. Having thousands of followers, subscribers and views is fantastic but thats the “Interest” and then you need “Investigation” and then you must have “Action”.

In this incredible talk Yevgeniy Brikman gives an honest view on Start Ups, the myth of Silicon Valley and the phantom get rich quick business.

Before you start, ask yourself ARE YOU WILLING TO DO THIS FOR THE NEXT TEN YEARS?! because this is how long it will normally take for you to create a sustainable business. Its like a house, the quicker you knock it up the easier and quicker it comes down. So its going to take time and its not glamorous, its sitting in front of a laptop or computer and working all sorts of hours, your money is running out and your anxious and frightened, but you are also ON PURPOSE,ENGAGED and CREATIVE.

Here at Success4 we are on that long haul journey with you, which started independently with each member of our team learning skills, getting educated and having their own business, then coming together to create this unique self development and coaching platform.

START UP’s take time and don’t stay start up’s for long so settle in for the long haul and enjoy the journey, the creativity, the adventure and ask yourself DO I WANT TO DO THIS FOR THE NEXT TEN YEARS?

If the answer is yes, then go for it. Its awesome.
