It’s a common misconception that entrepreneurs need to have the perfect idea or plan in order to succeed. The reality is, as entrepreneur and founder Loz Green points out “it’s not about perfect, it’s about taking action. Stop overplanning and start taking action instead.”
He continues on to say that, “no one has all the answers, so don’t wait until you have everything figured out before starting. The most important thing is to get started and learn as you go.” Maintaining this mindset has allowed him to launch 7 successful businesses in just a few years.
This doesn’t mean you should forgo all planning and research. But it does show that taking action is crucial to getting started on the right foot, especially in a digital world where so many things change at such an accelerated rate.
When most people are 16 years old, they’re just starting to think about their future. But for Green, that was when he started his own business and began making a real impact on the world. Through his work in graphic design, domains, and online forums, Green has shown that age doesn’t matter when it comes to being successful.
After attending a domain name conference in the US, Green discovered his niche in Google AdWords and online communities. In learning how to make serious income through these platforms, he has been able to help countless others do the same. Now residing in Amsterdam, Green is passionate about sharing his knowledge and helping people achieve their own entrepreneurial dreams through communities.
Today, Green is a household name in the digital marketing world. He was one of the first marketers to really embrace and understand the potential of building communities, which led him to create one of the most successful conferences in the world – Adworld and Ecom World.
Lorenzo’s story is an inspiration for anyone with a great business idea. If you have been sitting on an idea for a while, don’t let the fear of failure stop you from taking the first step. Who knows – your biggest opportunity might just be right around the corner.
