Some things make you more money than others. Do those things first.
Take a notebook everywhere you go and write down every thought for your business.
You never know who might be your next big client. Judge accordingly.

Be careful who you take advice from. Don’t listen to the people who aren’t in the place you are trying to get to.
Don’t get distracted. It’s too easy to do something tomorrow.
Keep reading. And read books again. You’ll learn something new.
Be responsive, but don’t be obsessed.

Sometimes getting the most money out of a deal isn’t what will get you rich.

You can’t make the contact you don’t meet.
Don’t get email notifications on your phone.
