For many years of my entrepreneurial life; I locked myself up in a silo working away on my next new venture. All alone. Working like a dog and barely peeking out of my entrepreneurial cave to see what the rest of the world was up to.
You see, it’s not just about your grand idea and vision to build a company. And it most certainly is not about working 25 hours in a 24 hour day. The reality is our success as entrepreneurs is extremely dependent on this:
Our Relationships & Reputation.
My in depth conversations with many successful entrepreneurs have revealed how critical your reputation with real relationships are. Both Brandon Mills, Co-Founder of SocialVibe and BlockBeacon; and Jeff Walker, the multi-million dollar entrepreneur and Founder of Internet Alchemy, Inc; named this as one of the main reasons for their wildly successful companies.
But what does this mean and what can we do as entrepreneurs to improve our relationships and repair our reputations? Well, I found the perfect guy to ask.
