RED 196: The #1 Quality Of Successful Entrepreneurs (And The Downside Of Social Media)There is a single quality that you must have if you want to be a successful entrepreneur. Just because you had it once doesn’t mean you still have it and because you have it now doesn’t mean you’ll always have it.

It’s elusive, but if you can cultivate it, you’ll absolutely have the success in business (and life) that you’re looking for.

On this episode of RED Podcast, I talk about it…

In This Episode:

  • Will your new business idea work?
  • Should you raise your prices?
  • The things every entrepreneur worries about…
  • Now vs. Then
  • How social media is costing you money — it’s not just the timesuck (although that is costing you money as well)
  • Are you overexposed?
  • What Prince knew about marketing that most entrepreneurs get wrong
  • Violating trust within mastermind groups — there is no excuse for this (yet people do it all the time)
