Well good news is we at (A Creative Digital Design Agency) have compiled some advice from the highly successful Entrepreneurs. These are not just strategies to be stored in a secret book. These are real life experiences, stories, the pain, and the success of these successful geniuses that will help you nurture your mind for greater success.

Advice on Passion

“If your only goal in your business is to make money, don’t bother. Find something you can be passionate about and run with it. Find other people who are committed to the same cause or passion as you, and divide and conquer.” ~Blair Nastasi, Founder/CEO @ Media Moguls PR

“Give it your all. You really can’t try and start a business and give 50% effort. You need to dedicate as much time and resources to your endeavor as possible. I would also recommend having some skin in the game. Obviously, your time is important but when you invest your own money into the business, it will just make you work even. harder.”
~Jason Parks, Owner @ The Media Captain

Advice on Hardships

“There’s nothing better than starting your own business but you have to be OK with the ups and downs. You are going to have higher highs and lower lows than you’ve ever had before. From an emotional standpoint, you need to be ok with this. But in the end I’d advise “just do it.”
~Will von Bernuth, Co-founder @ Block Island Organics

“You will have setbacks. They are normal, but the ones who will be successful think outside the box and figure a new way around the setbacks to push them ahead. You need to be innovative and have a different state of mind then the rest.”
~Marc Appelbaum, Founder/CEO @ Global Branding Central

“Wake up at least one hour before you have to be at a computer screen. Make a cup of tea and sit down with a pen and paper. Write down the three to five things — and no more — that are making you the most anxious or uncomfortable… Block out two to three hours to focus on one of them.” ~Tools of Titans, by Tim Ferriss

Advice on Business Growth

“I think the most important thing for young entrepreneurs to have is focus. It’s not a lack of capital that kills startups, it’s lack of bandwidth. If the idea is good enough, there will be plenty of time to leverage it out to other aspects of the market. Stick to your knitting in the early stage and give yourself the opportunity to expand focus once you have the credibility of the core idea’s success.”
~Luke Schneider, CEO @ Silvercar

“[Don’t] scale too quickly. It can be appealing to try and get your product out there as fast as possible, but it doesn’t always work out. Repositioning and improving your product cannot be considered failures.”
~Nabeel Mushtaq, Co-founder/COO @

“Have patience. Ideas and businesses are not created overnight. Things will tend to take longer than expected, whether that is fundraising, product development cycles, customer acquisition, etc…. In Silicon Valley, this is tough, because the whole culture here is built around a short–term focus of how quickly you can grow. Have resilience and don’t give up so quickly. Survive another day and keep at it. Those who have patience and resilience will eventually find success.” ~Jonathan Tang, Founder/CEO @ Vastrm

Advice on Customer Service

“We see our customers as invited guests to a party, and we are the hosts. It’s our job every day to make every important aspect of the customer experience a little bit better.” ~ Jeff Bezos,

“Get closer than ever to your customers. So close that you tell them what they need well before they realize it themselves.”  ~ Steve Jobs, Apple

Advice on Success & Failure

“It’s so important to celebrate the small wins. When you venture into entrepreneurship for the first time, experiencing the frequent and unpredictable ups and downs can be unsettling. Every day is a journey and the low moments of uncertainty and doubt are inevitable. You will question yourself, your model, your team. When that tide turns again (which it will), take the time to celebrate and reflect on that win. It will serve as your foundation for the next bumpy ride.”
~Samantha Laliberte, Co-founder @ Ezzy Lynn

Advice on Leadership

“The secret of leadership is to create more leaders. You do that by giving up responsibility and [letting] the other person fail on their own. We never learn from others’ teachings, we learn from our experiences; please let your managers/leaders grow the same way.”
~Annkur P. Agarwal, Founder @

Read, learn, and read some more! The amount of information that can be found on the web is incredible. And don’t forget about books — How to Win Friends and Influence PeopleLincoln on Leadership, and The Big Leap are great places to start. As a leader, you need to be good at a lot of stuff. Start rounding out your hard edges so that you can make yourself easier to work with.”
~Arsham Mirshah & Chris Mechanic, Co-founders @  WebMechanix

To conclude it all. Success is not just a position, it is a mindset. For anyone to be successful, you first need to set your mind on the end goal. And then start your journey towards the success. To start a shop is easy, but to keep it going is hard. I myself failed 4 times before my 5th successful startup. And one thing I did was, I didn’t gave up. So, if you are starting out and you are willing to go on the long run, follow these advice from highly successful Entrepreneurs and gear up your startup for ultra-success.
