I don't want to settle, do you? One of the main reasons I decided to create this blog was because I wanted to share my thoughts, struggles, losses and victories on following through with others. I could...

Follow Throughers Rss

Taking lessons from someone who gets it

According to the US government, there were over 29.5 million small business alone active in the U.S. This doesn’t even account for the medium and large companies that were started by visionaries. Now granted, the majority of businesses fail, but all of these people had at least the follow-through to get it up and running.

And if we look at the ones that actually make it, how many of them are revolutionary ideas? Not too many. And how many great ideas were part of the failures, or even the non-starters. A whole lot I’m sure. I am venturing to guess that aside from the obvious things like having a viable business model, the success of the ones that do make it have for the large part to do with the dedication and follow-through of the people leading the charge.

Over the next few weeks I’m going to be talking to some people who I think have found a way to get things done.
They have that follow-through factor that we’d all like to have. Instead of just talking about doing something they do it.

I have to say I’d like to have a little of what they had for breakfast.

If you have anyone you think would be good to include in this who may have some thoughts, please send them my way!
I’d love to talk with them.

Or maybe you yourself have been able to make something big happen. Send me a note and maybe we can have you write a guest post to share some of your thoughts with the rest of us.
