10 ways to succeed with ZERO talent

10 Ways To Succeed With ZERO Talent

2016-02-09 11.23.11

I saw this on Facebook yesterday and quickly forwarded it to my son. He was not overly thankful.

Ten attributes that guarantee success and require ZERO talent (you need all 10):

  1. Being on time
  2. Work ethic
  3. Effort
  4. Body language
  5. Energy
  6. Attitude
  7. Passion
  8. Being coachable
  9. Doing extra
  10. Being prepared

None the less, I really like this meme. So thank you Scott Riden (whoever you are). I’ve always said there are only two things that you always have control over … effort and attitude. This takes my philosophy just one step further by adding some specificity. As an entrepreneur, someone who shows up and clearly displays these 10 traits will impress me more than someone with a superstar resume. After all … we always focus on creating processes that are repeatable and scalable and a candidate who displays effort and attitude is almost always teachable.

So, if this sounds like you … please send me an email and I’ll hire you (or if you hire me … make you a huuuge success!).
