I read a cool quote from Bill Gates today:

Business Success Advice

“Most people overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in ten years.”

My first year in business was 25 years ago and I thought I was going to be instantly successful and make a lot of money but things didn’t turn out anywhere near as grand as I’d thought.  This first year I sold a lot.  I sold my car, my expensive watch and I did lots of tennis coaching.

However, now that I’ve been in business for many years I’ve achieved more than I could ever imagine.  I can’t imagine what another 10 years is going to look like…

Moral of the story:

Don’t give up!  So many people I meet try a given form of marketing for a few weeks, or months, then give up.  Understand that the big rewards come over the long term and not the first week or month.

Stay patient and play full out.  Consistency is key!
