We all have our own idea of what makes a successful entrepreneur.

While this conception may vary person to person, certain aspects remain constant: high intelligence, the ability to persevere in the face of adversity, a passion for what they do, a sense of fearlessness, the ability to adapt quickly, and so on.

These are the types of traits that spring to mind first—the quintessential smart, strong-willed, unfailingly confident entrepreneur, blazing his own trail.

No doubt about it, these are important qualities to have. But realistically, while they matter, they might not be the end-all, be-all when it comes to successful entrepreneurship—and they may not be indicative of long-term success, either.

A good contract is vital for your profits, as it defines what your customers can expect from your services, as well as what you will get from them. Unfortunately, drafting one is time-consuming, and it can be hard to know what to include.

Contracts are important, though, because while many small businesses feel they should work on trust, the results can be disastrous. Getting your terms and expectations fixed in print is the only way to guarantee profitable and reliable outcomes.

This morning, I decided to walk to the coffee shop down the street. When I got there, I decided to have a cup of coffee and a bagel. Those decisions shaped my morning, as did all the other small decisions I’ve made up until this moment.

Our daily lives are the cumulative effect of hundreds of small decisions.

These decisions encompass everything from what you chose to wear today, to where you’re eating for lunch. Generally speaking, decisions like this come fairly easily, and we rarely agonize over the small choices we make throughout our daily lives.

However, some decisions carry enough weight that the prospect of simply making a choice can feel like a huge undertaking. The decision to quit your job and start your own business, choosing to hire additional team members, taking on a new, difficult project—the decisions entrepreneurs face are often very difficult to make, and involve careful consideration.

Jeff Walker was broke.

He couldn’t cut it in the corporate world, so he was taking care of his young children while his wife struggled to put food on the table. His family was broke… and desperate for change.

That’s when Walker decided to try something different. He started creating products and selling them online. Within a few years, his wife was able to quit her job and they were moving into their dream home.

The rest is history.

Walker’s digital marketing career dates all the way back to 1996 – practically eons in the fast-moving environment of the internet. Since that time, he has engineered countless successful product launches. His coaching students have brought in over $400 million and counting!

These eye-popping results landed Walker’s book Launch a spot on my to-read list. It took a long time for me to cross it off, but I’m so glad I did. Launch is full of actionable insights you can use to grow your businesses. Keep reading to find out how!

Maddening, isn’t it?

You’re pulling all-nighters for ungrateful customers. You’re struggling just to pay the bills – while your competitors are buying new homes and taking fancy vacations.

It can feel like you’re drowning. Not making progress, but doing everything you can just to stay afloat.

It’s no way to live…

But it’s the harsh reality a lot of freelancers and entrepreneurs face.

Things don’t have to be this way. You can earn more, and finally get paid what you’re worth.
