Advice from a Great Entrepreneur

by | Dec 6, 2006 | Observations

Every year Inc. Magazine names the entrepreneur of the year. This year it is Ken Hendricks of ABC Supply, the nation’s larges wholesale distributor of roofing, siding and gutters. Click here to read the whole article. 

In the article he offers some great advice. The point that resonated with me is, “Whatever you do, do the best you can and never set a limit on how far you can go.”

This advice can be applied to both your professional and personal lives. The entrepreneurs I meet through the Aggie 100, FastTech 50 and various other events, all have followed similar advice. 

If you don’t take pride in your business and believe you can succeed no matter the obstacles in your way, you aren’t setting yourself up for success. 

Ken Hendricks is like many “serial entrepreneurs” I’ve met, taking the lessons learned and the successes from one business and using that knowledge in another business venture.

How have you overcome obstacles to run a successful business? Were obstacles easier to overcome when you were 100% dedicated to the venture? What advice can you give to other entrepreneurs?
