Have You Considered These Ways to Accelerate Your Entrepreneurial Journey?

It doesn’t matter what stage of the entrepreneurial journey you’re in, it’s safe to assume that rapid growth is among one of your many short-term goals. While some entrepreneurs are fortunate enough to launch a company and experience immediate growth, others take a bit longer to find their footing.

While it’s important to grind, grind, and grind some more, you must also look into other ways to accelerate your entrepreneurial journey. Here are three things you should consider:

1. Get an Advanced Degree

Going back to school may not be high on your to-do list, but take a step back and think about what it could do for you. 

For example, if you’re starting a marketing agency, could you benefit from an MBA or another type of advanced degree?

If you’re unsure of which direction to head, there are online services that can help you choose the right school and program. The more research you conduct, the more you’ll realize that obtaining an advanced degree isn’t nearly as intimidating as you first thought. You can also obtain your advanced degree through colleges and universities that offer online MBA or MBM programs.

2. Dress for Success

When you look your best, you feel your best. And when you feel your best, you’re more likely to perform at your peak. If you’ve yet to get serious about dressing for success, don’t wait any longer to upgrade your wardrobe. 

Along with the clothes that you wear, consider the accessories that can take your appearance to the next level. For instance, there are a variety of fashionable watches for men, many of which go well with business attire.

You don’t have to completely change your style. You simply want to upgrade to a wardrobe that gives you more confidence. This has nothing to do with experience or knowledge but can still do wonders in helping you reach your goals. 

3. Put Your Health First

There was a time — and it still exists today in some circles — when most entrepreneurs believed that you had to work 24 hours a day, seven days a week to be successful.

Yes, hard work is important, but not if you put it above your health. Doing so will eventually take its toll on you, which can stop you dead in your tracks.

Here are some simple things you can do in regards to your health:

  • Find time to exercise: It doesn’t matter if you do this at a local gym, at home, or with the help of a remote personal trainer, a little bit of exercise can go a long way. Even if it’s only 15 to 30 minutes per day, it can help keep you healthy. 
  • Eat right: Even when you’re on the go, look for ways to maintain a healthy and balanced diet. In other words, skip the morning donuts for a banana or a bowl of oatmeal. And forget about ordering a pizza to get you through a late-night shift.
  • Watch your sleep schedule: Use a REM sleep cycle calculator to ensure that you’re getting enough high-quality sleep every night. You may be able to get away with a lack of sleep for a few days, but it’ll eventually catch up to you. If you’re struggling with this, find out why. Are you drinking caffeine before going to bed? Are you eating too much junk food before retiring for the evening? Are you spending too much time on your phone?


With more than 31 million entrepreneurs in the United States, you’re not the only one looking for ways to accelerate the speed at which you advance. 

If you’ve yet to experiment with the ideas above, now’s the time to do so. You may soon find that a change to your approach puts you on the fast track to reaching all your career-related goals.
