Three Keys to Business Success

Longevity in the workplace can lead to clarity. Concepts or truisms emerge if you can distill down the daily activity in to  big picture observations. Here’s a concept that’s become more evident to me the last 5 years.

Starting, running, and growing a business requires 3 key elements.

  1. Hard work – without this, all else fails.
  2. Luck – working hard, and working smart, creates more opportunities for more luck. Anyone who tells you they made it on hard work, or their superior intellect, alone is full of shit.
  3. Who you know – sure, you can build a business without this, but you can do more, faster, if you’ve got strong ties with friends, colleagues, and family across your industry.
