Only focus on your ‘work’ – and don’t think about how to actually manage or market your business.
Don’t invest in learning how to run a business well.
Don’t surround yourself with other people who are doing the same thing.
Don’t seek out mentors to learn accelerate learning.
Don’t have goals.
If you don’t know how to take care of a part of your business – ignore it. (Taxes? Marketing? Client retention?)
Spend thousands and thousands of dollars on coaching or education on every new business bell and whistle under the sun.
Meanwhile, don’t implement any coaching or education.
Don’t remove yourself out of the busy work of your business regularly to get a strategic perspective.
Don’t have a plan, or if you do, don’t follow it.
Blame everybody else. Blame the economy, blame the politicians, blame everything else except yourself. Who wants to be self-responsible and powerful enough to create their own destiny anyway?
