When you start your own business
When you start your own business, get out of that 9-to-5 mindset. How hard you work isn't as important as how consistent you are. Don't let your business die because you've been trained to take binge vacations after slaving for 8 hours a day for the last 50 weeks. That's not the life of a business owner. In fact, that life isn't even NORMAL (you're not supposed to work eight straight hours without a nap. It's taking years off your life).
Being consistent, steady and checking on your resources everyday is how you keep your baby breathing and growing. After years of consistent behavior, you wake up to find that your little bundle of financial joy has grown into an empire. This is how you get ahead in the world of business. Balance and consistency are the keys.
