Pitfall #7: Mistaking the reward for the end.

Discipline, strategy, and analysis become a way of life on the road to success.  But even after you’ve built a business around these values, that doesn’t mean you’re done.  Knowing when and how to reinvest is essential to the legacy of your life’s work.

“What does success look like?” 

Only you can answer that question—but you need an outside perspective to develop your vision into a responsible strategy. While you will have worked your entire life to get there, you can never be fully prepared for that moment when your dreams truly come within reach—or the questions that moment will bring.

Success brings many friends, but not all will be driven by your vision.  Who are you working with that will look you in the eye and say, “You’ve made it. Now, where do you want to go next?”

What Really Matters

You are the one responsible for your business and for the people who depend on it.  That is a heavy load to carry. Stumbling into one of these pitfalls can keep you from accomplishing what only you can do.
