How To Excel In Any Hustle By Tony Micale

How To Excel In Any Hustle By Tony Micale

We all have our superpowers, whether we know about them or not is a discussion for another day. But this is often what separates those who succeed in their own ventures from the rest.

Self-employment calls for serious discipline and tapping into your passion and talent to add value to others. Controlling your schedule, driving your mission or purpose, and building your businesses is not for the faint-hearted. 

In 2019, the number of self-employed workers sat at 24 million, and with CoronaVirus pushing the unemployment rate to record highs, most people are looking at self-employment as the only option.

Below, we learn from Tony Micale who is already running on the gig-economy hamster wheel. Tony took bold steps to start his own business and is now reaping the benefits of this move. 

Like many businesses, Tony started his business in his parents’ garage. He converted it into a salon, and what followed was a series of successes that helped him to build stronger each day. Today, his barbershop, Tonys Chop Shop Barber, is one of the most respected joints in Brisbane, Australia. 

Going back to the basics

When it comes to running a business, you must be in the right mental and physical state to perform at your fullest potential. Tony notes that things like good sleep and making sure your health is in check goes a long way when it comes to running your business. Ultimately, stress and fatigue lead to reduced productivity. According to the Global Corporate Challenge report, 54 percent of people who sleep poorly are more likely to experience stress in their jobs. Tony reckons that mastering how to manage your time both for work and for family and friends is key to the success of any venture.  

Never stop learning and improving 

There are many ways to find success as an entrepreneur, but no matter what path you take, it is vital to always keep learning. Tony encourages other entrepreneurs to be prepared to not only face challenging times but also overcome them. You have to be resilient to succeed. He says, when you are faced with resistance, ‘don’t run from it, embrace it.’

Entrepreneurship is all about the mindset. In a recent survey by NY Post, 97% of polled self-employed workers would not want to return to traditional employment. Attesting to the growth and resilience that comes with entrepreneurship.
