The Power of Persistence in Building a Business

Thu, Nov, 30th 2023 


How many times have you given up on a business idea or shut down a business underway because someone didn’t believe in it or you encountered challenges along the way?

Think about that for a moment.

In a world where instant gratification is the norm, entrepreneurs often forget the value of persistence in building a business and often give up in the face of the slightest challenge.

But building a business requires persistence and unwavering determination. Without it, it becomes difficult to last through the difficult moments that will surely come, and you miss the opportunity to grow and even succeed.

What sets top entrepreneurs apart is their persistence in the face of adversity. Think about Thomas Edison, who famously failed 1000 times before inventing the light bulb. Or J.K. Rowling was rejected 12 times by publishers before finding one willing to give her book ‘Harry Porter’ a shot. 

Today, Harry Porter is a $15 billion brand!
