The founder of HighStrike Startup Ben Zogby is what they call an actual entrepreneur, an individual who possesses several attributes when it comes to starting a business; energy, ideas, skills, experience, money, commitment, and time. If you have some of these, this will go a long way and provide the foundation to get your business going.
Ben Zogby built an online business valued at $10M from just some of these factors in under two years, and since then his business has been growing in revenue every month. He became a millionaire at the age of 24 and started having 6-figures in months. The entrepreneur’s goal now is to help individuals get their ideas up and running where they can independently turn it into a business, and most importantly a business where you receive a passive income for life.
Create a Routine
It’s so important to have a routine, this may be simple and obvious advice for many but an individual who keeps to the same routine consistently will benefit greatly. Try to get up at the same time every morning as your body will get used to it and the earlier you get up the more productive you will be.
The entrepreneur gets up at 7:00 am each morning. This time works for the entrepreneur as it allows him to get a head start on the market before the trading market opens. Find a time that suits you, maybe it’s earlier than this or later depending on personal commitments. Also, try and communicate with as many people who are doing the same job as you and who share similar goals.
You will achieve so much each day, and be that one bit closer to a successful business. This will be extremely effective when it comes to starting a new business, especially during this pandemic with everyone at home, and you’ll feel happier speaking to other individuals as you can learn so much from those who are knowledgeable in your industry.
Set Action Goals
Ben Zogby is a big believer in exercising if you’re finding it difficult to get motivated and to think of business ideas. Since many of us are working from home, we have more time for ourselves, so go for a brisk walk, a run, or if you have space at home turn on a workout on YouTube and you’ll instantly have more energy to tackle your goals.
Now, think of action goals, those which are doable rather than aiming too high like how can I make a million dollars of sales.
Why not choose things you generally do every day?
If you want to start a successful business, the self-made millionaire recommends keeping happy and healthy by exercising regularly, and to set five action goals daily such as – I want to make $100 today or I want to upload three pieces of content to social media.
Rest and Energize
It’s not all about work and no play according to Ben Zogby, as he mentions how vital it is to pick one day a week to rest and take time for yourself. Some may believe this will not bring you closer to starting a business or even a successful one, but Ben has a built a million-dollar business with this work ethic. Surprisingly, you will find yourself being a lot more productive for the other six days.
As a result, this will affect your progress and lead to a quicker route to success. Ben knows from experience that it is not sustainable to work almost 16 hours a day, going from your nine to five and then trading for the evening. Spend one day off resting, relaxing and energizing for a week ahead.
Ben Zogby has practiced these habits daily and is a proven example as he became a self-made millionaire by the age of 24. Follow these and notice how many goals you achieve in a week. If you can dedicate your time wisely, while still working towards your goals, you will become closer to starting a successful business.
