Have learned a lot as an entrepreneur. And if I’m to give you two pieces of advice it will be Speed & Preparation.
1. Why Speed
Let me start with a quote from one of my role model, Robert Kiyosaki(Best selling author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad).
Investment is more of what you know than what you do. And in today’s ever-changing world, ‘what you know’ is not as important as ‘how fast you learn’ … Robert Kiyosaki
I can’t but agree to the above quote. The speed at which you learn and execute is very important.
Let me put this to your notice, most of the times I made millions in life has been as a result of my speed in learning and execution. For example, in 2016 I started saving all my money in Bitcoin, by the end of 2017 I had made over $10,000 (about ₦4,000,000).
This was only possible because I kept learning and investing aggressively in Bitcoin every single day.
If you think that’s a lie, read the article I posted in February 2017 titled ‘why Nigerians must put their savings in Bitcoin and Ethereum in 2017‘.
I have other examples to give but I will limit it to just that.
Why do you think it’s important to prepare? I have kind of figured out that if you spend 10 Minute to prepare it would save you more than 1 hour of time wasting when you start the real work. I don’t know about you but I always want to save time, so I will always prepare.
To further explain the importance of preparation, I will share my personal experience. In December 2017, 9jacashflow.com and my knowledge of Blockchain secured me a job with Propy.com, a Blockchain solution and global real estate marketplace(thank God I was prepared).
The same preparation saved my butt last year December when I was suddenly laid off my Job because the company was struggling with the declining Bitcoin and Crypto price.
If I wasn’t prepared, the shock of that layoff would have spoilt my mood during December festive period and even the new year. But I thank God, I quickly adjusted.
I think the worst thing can happen to you is to not be prepared when an opportunity comes. I will leave you with this famous quote by Les Brown.
It’s better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one, than to have one and not be prepared… Les Brown
In conclusion, I believe you should always prepare and employ speed when you’re learning and executing your plans.
