Evan Williams is the creator of two highly successful blogging platforms Twitter & Blogger. He has faced the ups and downs of the dotcom boom and bust and has shown through sheer passion and persistence that no matter what, you can achieve greatness if you follow your dreams.

Evan Williams shares his 5 Keys to Entrepreneurial Success for any startup fiend looking at creating something memorable in this world.

 

Ev Williams Advice For Entrepreneurs

 

1. Work with Amazing People

Don’t compromise on who you choose to found your company with and hire. Do not put up with ego-centric personalities or downer attitudes.

 

2. Take on Big Challenges

It’s pretty simple: Hard things are valuable; easy things are not so valuable. Reaching the mountaintop is rewarding because it is hard. If it was easy, everybody would do it.

 

3. Focus

Say no to most things: Features. People. Partnerships. “Coffees.” Projects. Only a few of them really matter. (Yes, it’s hard to know which.) Don’t get distracted.

 

4. Take Care of Yourself

When you don’t sleep, eat crap, don’t exercise, and are living off adrenaline for too long, your performance suffers. Your decisions suffer. Your company suffers.

 

5. Love those Close to You

Failure of your company is not failure in life. Failure in your relationships is.

    To be successful needs a lot of discipline and motivation. Online business is quite popular today, if we know how to utilize our resources and always open minded, somehow we can easily cope up to any situation.

    Joel,

    As an affiliate of a blogging platform (Empower Network), this is exactly what makes success predictable.There is no secret or magical formula for success, but to follow basic principles that you touched upon. I also think that an additional point would be how we define failure (perspective) and how to appropriately respond to it. All successful entrepreneurs understand the value of lessons learned through “failing forward” (John Maxwell).

We were a small, liberal arts university in Joliet, Illinois. I would guess the players on that San Francisco team had never heard of us. (more…)

By having a plan in place, you will wake up every morning with a clear idea of what it is you need to do each day.
