Are you willing to DIE for your business? By Mike Fallat
My name is Mike Fallat and I have been an entrepreneur since 2008. It took me 10 years to figure out what my strengths were in the business game. I knew I had grit. I knew I had drive. I knew I had resourcefulness. I knew I had initiative. I knew I had the ability to talk to strangers. But, I didn't know how far I was willing to go. You think it's going to be 1-2 years before life balances out. And then you realize that the grind is not a sprint, it's a marathon. It
What are you ATTRACTED to?
Now that I am 33 years old, I know what I am attracted to: Pretty girls, Real Businesses, Old Cars, and True Stories. If you don't know what you are attracted to, then something is really wrong. I'll take that one step further, if you do not openly admit what you are attracted to, how will the universe know how to deliver it to you? If I see any of those, my eyes are drawn to them. It's in my DNA. I can't change that. Not unless I get married, then I will have to change
Failed Business? Say "I"
Truth be told, I probably wouldn't invest in someone who hasn't failed at least ONCE in the entrepreneurial world. Failure teaches more than success ever will. Being an entrepreneur for 9 years, I can tell you the school of hard knocks has taught me things that only can be learned FROM the school of hard knocks. People shouldn't hide behind their failure, they should display it. They should wear it as a badge of honor. Why is that? Because it means life taught you someth
Dating as an Entrepreneur
Dating as an entrepreneur is very difficult. To succeed in business, your mind needs to be constantly pulling in one direction. And when something pulls you away from your business, you call that a distraction. However, what about relationships and dating? A business built with nobody can actually be quite sad. After all, everyone wants to share time with someone else. Since I began my entrepreneurial journey in 2008, I have found dating to be quite challenging in some ar
Motivation for Entrepreneurs
The entrepreneurs who come from nothing have it the hardest. Money and connections are like air and when you don't have a lot of air, then you don't have a lot of time. So, it can be extremely frustrating when you see people who were born with a lot of "air" as you drown on a daily basis. The ultimate question is: HOW DO YOU COMPETE WITH THEM? The answer is simple: You have to play the game differently. You have to outplay, outsmart, and out-position them all. All the strug
Schools Fail Entrepreneurs
Creativity skills are learned, not from sitting in a classroom, but by experiencing and applying creative thinking processes. Maybe that is why school is failing entrepreneurs everyday. I hated school. I never cared about it. Maybe it was because I didn't pay for it myself. Maybe it was because I never valued a "grade". Maybe it was because it simply did not play to my strengths. Whatever it was, school does prepare people to be entrepreneurs. It's obvious. And one ste
What Does Best-Seller Mean? Mike Fallat from DreamStarters explains
A question I am asked during every meeting is WHAT DOES BEST-SELLER MEAN? Does it mean you will be invited to be on Oprah? Does it mean you will get the man or woman of your dreams? Does it mean you will be set for life? Well, I hate to burst your bubble, but it doesn't necessarily mean any of those. People believe it is the end goal of a life of wealth, riches, and success. It is not. I look at being a bestseller as not the end... IT IS THE BEGINNING. Yesterday, I did a fa
The Killer of Entrepreneurial Dreams
Today, on Facebook, I asked a simple question: What KILLS most entrepreneurial dreams? Is it Kids,Relationships,Fear,or a decent Job? I truly believe the thing that holds people back from pursuing their entrepreneurial passion is a job that is GOOD ENOUGH. Good enough is a phrase we become accustomed to in life. That car I drive is good enough. That person I am dating is good enough. That house I live in is good enough. Why settle for good enough? I want to get exactly
Most Startup Entrepreneurs Come From Money (according to stats)
Starting a business from the ground up requires more than just hard work. It requires mistakes. And unfortunately, those mistakes cost a lot of money. So, it doesn't take a brain surgeon to realize that having money and connections (from the very beginning) makes it easier to get in the startup game and take big risks. In an article featured in INC. Magazine, it highlights the chance of success goes up when you are born into wealth and connections. In 2008, I threw my hat
