11 Entrepreneurs Stories - Inspiring People That Found Startup Success

 

 

 

 

Successful startup founders are often hailed as superhuman, but the reality is they’re regular people like you and I.

Well, maybe not exactly like you and I.

Given the unusual lifestyle of an entrepreneur, and that so many are fueled by the promise of wild riches, it comes as no surprise that many startup founders share inspiring stories about overcoming adversity.

 

We scoured the web for business success stories fraught with eccentric leaders, personal struggles, and uncommon lifestyles to find out how these innovators translated their life experiences into startup gold.

5 Ways to Be More Strategic and Successful in 2021

 

 

The impact of 2020 will stay with us for the rest of our lives. It marks a critical inflection point of before and after. It is a year that blindsided many small-business owners.

 

We’ve seen new businesses birthed with success and others thriving amid chaos. We’ve seen neighborhood classics tragically lost, and others that struggle to survive day-to-day.

 

Critical points like these thrust every business owner from acting with strategic intention to reacting to curveballs. As we greet 2021, most businesses are settling into one of three camps:

  1. Thriving, but not trusting the success

  2. Surviving but hesitant to make bold moves

  3. Struggling and feeling battered, bruised and disillusioned

 

No matter which camp you fall into, you likely are eyeing 2021 with caution. You’re optimistic but timid in your approach to making those big visionary goals you’ve made in the past. You may even find it hard to dream of a better future because it feels so out of touch with what is happening globally. You are not alone in those feelings.

 

Do not become discouraged. The new year is an opportunity to rewrite the rules and stop settling for less in your business. It is the opportunity to cast a strategic vision that is different from the past and to create more success and growth in your business and your life. Here are five ways you can make it happen.

 

 

 

Perfection Is Not Required | For a Successful Business

 

 

While businesses must constantly evolve, the pursuit of perfection is the enemy of progress.

In our role as a franchise consulting firm, one of the things we frequently see is business owners constantly trying to build a better mousetrap. They spend their days trying to refine their business model. They worry their business must be perfect before they consider franchise expansion, and they wonder if they can even hope to expand if they do not offer something that is perfectly different from everyone else.

 

While franchise systems must constantly evolve and become better, the simple truth is that no business is perfect. And while a systemized approach to business growth requires constant improvement of the business model, it also acknowledges that growth should not be delayed while waiting for perfection

Perfection is the enemy of progress.

 

 

 

10 South African entrepreneurs under 35

 

 

 

 

It’s a fact, entrepreneurs are changing the world. Now even more than ever. But what’s more exciting is how young these entrepreneurs are. Facebook must be the most well-known example. Founded by (now) 28 year old Mark Zuckerberg, this company has literally changed the world, the way we communicate and do business.

Gone are the days where you need millions to start a business. The biggest marketplace is now available to anyone who has an internet connection – and what a marketplace – billions and billions of consumers! American kids as young as 10 are starting online businesses generating 5 and 6 figure incomes.

A crazy world we live in. But damn, isn’t it exciting?!

And in South Africa it is no different. With a sky high unemployment rate young South African entrepreneurs are now creating jobs for themselves and are making their mark both within the continent and across the globe.
