Three Pieces of Advice From Bob Macintosh

“The first thing that I can recommend would be to stop, take a break and re-evaluate what you are doing in your business. Most of your activities should be focused on generating revenue; if it isn’t, then you need to cut back on those types of activities. Secondly, surround yourself with the best possible people that you can find. There are very successful entrepreneurs that are running 6, 7, even 8 figure businesses – being around them can push yourself to work hard in order to reach their level. Plus, they can also offer useful advice. My third piece of advice would be to talk to your audience. You can get some important insight from different perspectives if you’re feeling stuck.”
