In this episode of The Next Entrepreneur, Jake spoke with Trevor Crane, bestselling author and owner of multiple businesses including Bestseller Big Business. Jake and Trevor spoke about getting started with your business and growing it to 1000 customers. Whether you’re writing a book, opening a restaurant, or starting a paper company, it starts with the same things.
Firstly, you need to find help. Seek out a mentor! However, sometimes someone you think might be a good mentor might not be the best choice. Trevor details what you should look for in a mentor.
Secondly, you need to declare to the world what you want to accomplish. By letting others in on your plan it helps to ensure you’ll get it done since people can hold you accountable.
You’ll have to listen to find out the rest of the steps to growing your startup to 1000 customers.
Jake and Trevor ask all of us some questions: What are we most passionate about? What are we best at? What is stopping us from living our dream? Before you can grow to 1000 customers, you need to answer these questions.
Trevor tells his story and talks about what turned writing his first book into a 20 year journey. Now, he encourages everyone to write a book, as shown by the fact that his 10-year-old daughter is an accomplished writer.
