Opportunity Doesn't Knock -- It Answers


You have to go out and find opportunity. If you’re an entrepreneur, it’s not going to knock on your door. Opportunity doesn’t even know where you live, it doesn’t know your wife and kids, it doesn’t know what a great person you are. As an entrepreneur you have to get up from behind your desk, go down the street, and knock on every door, and maybe opportunity will answer.

That’s the biggest thing that I tell folks. If you want to be successful in business, you have to go out and find opportunity, because opportunity will not find you. Again, its all about relationships. The old adage “it’s who you know and not what you know” is so true. It really is, because those relationships are the ones that bring you the opportunities.
