Brendan Cox’s Top 5 Tips for Aspiring Entrepreneurs

Brendan Cox reading his new book: "Strictly Business: How to Crush it as a Young Entrepreneur"

Are you still in school but have a great idea which you want to pursue? Becoming an entrepreneur is an outstanding career choice, and you shouldn’t put this on hold for the future. Whether you have a really great startup idea or you want to establish your own clothing brand, Here are five tips to help you live your entrepreneurial dream at a young age.

1. Dream Big

Ellen Johnson once said “If your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough.” Being an entrepreneur means having a clear vision for what you want to become and the desire to push you toward your goal. Dream big and set short-term and long-term goals. Your actions depend on your planning so make sure to plan ahead of time in order to crush your goals.

2. Take Risks

Tom Soderstrom once said “When you take risks and they work out, they lead to new capabilities you never saw before.” Pushing your boundaries means taking a risk and working hard to turn the tables in your favor. Although we feel comfortable within our limits, in order to succeed in this industry you must push yourself beyond your comfort zone. If you look into success stories of entrepreneurs, you will find that success demands us to challenge our boundaries.

3. Manage Your Stress

Entrepreneurship involves a lot of struggles, failures and hard work before success and with that, comes stress. It is crucial to be able to face stressful moments when running your businesses. Rather than procrastinate, figure out what is causing you and your business trouble and find a solution. 

4. Keep Learning

Perfection doesn’t exist in the business world; markets and products are always evolving. To better your businesses and your entrepreneurial mind, you need to keep learning and educating yourself. In this digital era that we live in there are so many ways to learn new things online.

5. Hustle

Success doesn’t come easily. Robert Rodriguez once said “Success is never owned, it is rented, and the rent is due every day.” You need to earn it by working hard tirelessly every single day. To get things off the ground, you need to hustle. With this comes sacrifice: you will have to sacrifice family time, weekends and all those parties with your friends. It is the price you have to pay.
