The Ten Commandments for Entrepreneurs

Years ago I began doing a presentation called Think Big for area high schools and colleges which included The Ten Commandments for Entrepreneurs. It became quite popular and I was asked to keynote my Think Big presentation for Women’s Economic Ventures. I was honored and knew my material mattered when I got hugs from several of the women after my talk. In particular, Ida, who wanted to start her own peach cobbler business in her late 60s. The tears in her eyes when she realized she could do it, made me get teary eyed too. I hope she followed her dream. Since, I’ve presented at USC Marshall School of Business and UCLA Anderson School for 8 years consecutively, and countless times at other universities and colleges.

But what’s really got me excited now is I’ll be sharing my story at Sage Summit 2015 in New Orleans and helping others Think Big / Ignite Your Practice or Business.

Part of my Think Big presentation is the 10 Commandments for Entrepreneurs. I’ll explain in detail at Sage Summit.

  1. Trust your gut.
  2. Never make the same mistake twice.
  3. Set achievable goals. Achieve them.
  4. Leap.
  5. Enjoy the ride.
  6. To fail is to give up.
  7. Discover your weaknesses and compensate.
  8. Be great or don’t bother.
  9. Listen. No, really.
  10. Balance.
