“How would you kick your own ass?” 

Throughout this video from Motivation District, the narrator discusses how to outwork your competitors. The opening question above immediately draws the viewers’  attention and makes them think of all the shortcomings of their current company. “What are the things that keep you up at night,” the narrator continues to ask. Every company has its shortcomings and once identified, there should be the items a company addresses first.  

The next piece of the narrator’s business and entrepreneurial advice is to know the history of your ideas. Chances are that whatever your business centers around have already been addressed to some capacity. This does not necessarily mean that you can’t outwork your competitors; it just means that you should learn from their successes and shortcomings.  

The narrator continues that you alone determine your success as an entrepreneur. Everyone has the ability to be great at something, but it is determined mainly by the amount of effort you put in. Similarly, any time is the perfect time to start. If you put in the work and preparation, you will know when to start. Starting a business can be scary, and if you want more security, the narrator suggests keeping your full-time job and working on your side business part-time. 

Finally, the narrator cautions his audience that if you decide to start a business, “you better know your industry better than anyone in the world.” Competitors are not going to willingly allow you to take their business from them. Because of this, you must learn to reimagine the industry and how your product or service can enhance the industry. 

This video is chock full of advice for those looking to start their own business. The process can be scary, but the narrator encourages his audience that through hard work and dedication, they can make it in their industry. This video can be accessed below:
