Do you know what it takes to buy a private jet?
Have you thought about why you would want a private jet?
These are questions that pop in the minds of a lot of business owners and for good reason, because they symbolize a form and level of success.
Not only that… the private jet allows you to buy back time.
Well, it takes a lot of time and effort… Or the way Ross Paquette calls it: the 10 years of ALL GO & NO STOP!
Know this though, a private jet is not a time machine…
… it won’t help you go back and amend the mistakes you’ve made, but it will allow you to buy back some of the time you lost while making those mistakes.
You should really think how you’d spend that time so looking back 25 years from now you can say to yourself – It was worth it!
In this episode of the Escape Velocity, Ross and I talk at length on the things you need to cover before you can start buying back time.
Here are some of the things you should focus on if you want your time back:
1. The philosophy behind the product
2. The tricks of building relationships quickly
3. The principles of customer experience
4. The art of the DEAL & how to activate accounts
5. How to develop yourself as a leader
6. How do you plan the executive strategy
7. How to find the CORE of the company
8. What it takes to find the right Investor
The starting point when building your company is to get the philosophy behind it straight and clear. Are you building this business to have a great product and be profitable? Or are you building the product so that you can raise the capital and really grow?
Both options have their benefits. No argument there.
However, what most people tend to forget in the midst of raising capital is actually developing their product and business’ profitability.
One thing is certain. If you stop developing your product and you do not offer the product that people need NOW… or even one step further – that people don’t know they need YET… someone else will!
At that point you are playing chase. I don’t want you to be there. YOU don’t want you to be there!
Just listen to the full episode here and give it some thought.
It will save you a lot of time!
Just like a private jet… Or a time machine…
