Business is not easy to run, but is rewarding as it requires perseverance and focus.

F.O.C.U.S – Focus, One, Course, Until Success.

Try doing a lot of things at once and check the results, there is a good chance that you will not be able to succeed on either.

Now try to focus on one course of action and you are guaranteed success.

This means if you are running your business, try and avoid being distracted by other schemes that come across as business opportunities, which can distract you away from progress.

Distractions will make it hard for you to build your empire and get rich and change people’s lives.

Lack of focus is caused by starting a business you don’t like and with no vision.

If your vision about your business is not clear, chances are, you will be easily distracted. I see a lot of young entrepreneurs who are running around playing “touch and go” in different businesses and industries.

Some people have a factory set up or a solid concept and are producing quality products and have an existing market, but you see them pursuing cleaning, catering, or construction tenders at the same time. This can be a waste of time and resources.

Never try and start multiple businesses all at once.

My advice would be, in your long-term business plan, list the other businesses that you would like start in the future, as this is part of growing your empire.

Start one business at a time and give it time to grow, probably five years and more. But don’t sit and wait, work on it (future growth).

Give it your all, and you are guaranteed to see the fruits of your labour. Keep FOCUS on your mind.
