    Here is mine:
    If you're in one business don't extend to next until you established the current one!
    This applies to Websites also!

    I hope this is the mistake what most webmaster's are doin!
    Establish one and then go for Next!

    2. ???
    3. profit!!

    (just switch #1 with "do what's your passion" and it should be pretty accurate...)

    Thanks, I've always found that my biggest problem is a lack of focus, but I've started to focus more on the project in hand, instead of cutting it short and moving onto another project.

    I used to be terrible for changing my mind.

    You need a good business plan
    You need focus
    You can't stop at all
    You can't slow down too much
    You have to be at the top of your game at all times
    You have to keep evolving with whatever your niche is
    You have to give attention grabbers such as promotions (if you are selling)
    You have to bend some rules if you are selling something
    You can't have a lack of drive
    Procrastination won't get you anywhere

    Focus, focus and focus.

    Since I have about 25 sites, I have to focus and concentrate on high priority matters
    otherwise I will miss shower, breakfast, sex, etc

    You have to love what you do. Without passion,
    great success is hard to come by. An entrepreneur will
    have tough times if he or she isn’t passionate about what
    they’re doing. People who love what they’re doing don’t give
    up. It’s never even a consideration. It’s a pretty simple
    formula.

    Thinking outside the box. The most successful ideas were often the most original of their time.

    for me it is:

    1. Planning

    2. Using the plan

    3. reviewing the plan

    4. using the plan


    I have an issue with detail and focusing sometimes so creating a great plan and sticking to it is essential,

    Were they? Of all successes 'most' were the most original of their time? Absolutely not true at all.

    And currently that is even more difficult to do because anything you think off was already done. Think outside the box promoting your product is good, but you think outside 'your box' meaning that you have to get over your own inhibitions and fears.

    But more useless; work hard & persist. Most (by far) people here won't make / do anything because they give up; stick in there for at least 3 years working your ass off and then decide if this maybe is not for you.

    These are also key, if you want to be sucessful in business one of the main qualites I have is persistance.

    If you want something bad enough.. get angry about it and go get it!

    I know this is an old post but it's a great discussion still - I would like to add that continuous learning is key to success. Especially in businesses like this that rely on technology and trends, just because you are successful now means you will be successful tomorrow. So to always be successful you need to have a hunger for learning. Make it big today, learn something new, make it big again tomorrow. That's the way to be ahead of the curve.
