In Part One, I looked at some of the factors I have observed as being vital to success. I’ll continue with these shortly, but first it’s worth examining what actually constitutes ‘success’. If you aren’t able to picture what success means to you, then how can you ever shoot for it? If you want to be ‘bigger than Amazon’, or ‘the world’s best-selling author’, it’s just possible these are unrealistically high goals to set. But success is scalable and once you get this message embedded in your mind, the steps to reach success are definitely achievable. Success is not what other people measure in you, it’s what you assess in meeting your own goals. If you happen to have bought yourself a Lamborghini with your earnings, then this might signal ‘success’ to everyone else, but if your plan was to have a garage full of Lambos, then you may be feeling disappointed!

In this first of a two-part article, I want to begin by asking ‘Is success an art, or a science? Can it be both an art and a science?’ I ask these questions because I am very serious about success, and spend a lot of time considering what the ingredients of success are, and how I can pass on this knowledge to startups and young entrepreneurs.

Well, in fact it’s a combination of these extremes, but what I’m certain of is that the path to success can indeed be learned, and over the years I have refined the points that I think all successful entrepreneurs embody, and...
It’s the time of year when we can look back on everything that has happened, and think about lessons learned. We can observe global trends in business and politics, and see how issues such as climate change are now becoming more pressing than ever. It’s been a strange year in many ways, but perhaps people have always made that observation, whatever century they were living in!
I am very serious about helping startup businesses succeed, and this year has seen further developments that I’m proud to have been part of, and I’m happy to have been involved with several outstanding new projects. These include a startup in Florida, created by a young and enthusiastic guy who has gathered a great team around him, and – I believe – is going to make a significant market entry in the coming year. Watch out for Briefcard.
Then there’s a US-based blockchain-enabled investment club called Bitdollar that I have been advising, which brings unique new...
