If You Don't Show Up, You will Never Get the Opportunity

There are so many people out there who want to succeed and do more with their life. The problem is they don't know where to start.  Here's some advice I wish I was able to give more often... DO something!  Literally anything, but not nothing.  I can promise you that doing nothing will get you no where.  Your dreams will not just come to you.  They will come after hard work!

One thing I saw while recruiting was that people would be constantly applying for my jobs.  I would phone screen them, I would think they were a great fit for the job and they seemed excited to be considered.  We would set up an interview for the next day and I'm left there waiting.  They don't show up.  So I move on and continue scouting candidates.  Typically by the next day they are applying for more jobs.  I reach out to them and let them know that we in fact had an interview set up but they did not show.  They assure me that they want to work so we set up another interview (2 times is my limit!)

They have no idea what the pay way, if they would really love the job, or anything else for that matter.  But because they don't show up they will never know what I have to offer and they will never get any further than they currently are.  

Think about this when you are starting your business.  If you don't show up to the opportunity, you will never get that opportunity.  Literally the worse thing that could happen if you do show up is you find out the opportunity is not a good fit.  But from that you may find another opportunity that suits you better.

My point is, if you don't try to achieve you dreams you will never get there.  So stop reading multiple articles about how to start your business and go out there and do it.  You'll learn along the way, I promise!
