I’m convinced that becoming a better entrepreneur is similar to becoming a better athlete. You’ve got to do the work.
You don’t become a better runner by reading Runner’s World. You don’t become a better person by reading Men’s Health. You become better by doing the work.
If you want to be a better entrepreneur, here’s what you have to do: sell one thing to one person you don’t know.
It’s that simple.
You don’t have to quit your job first.
You don’t need to learn to code first.
You don’t need to get business cards first.
At the end of the day, entrepreneurship is about sales.
Just make one sale this week. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a product you’re thinking about building or if it’s a few hours of your consulting time.
Invest in yourself this year: learn how to sell things. Your future self (and career) is depending on you.
