The bottom video has hints on the success of eleven CEOs. He was filmed at ICON 14 in Phoenix, Arizona. ICON is attracting 3000 participants at Infusionsoft’s customer conference. Most of them are small businesses like SMEs like small companies like you or me.
On behalf of the small business trend, I was interviewing the “man’s gate” by the host and the participants.
And what is my favorite among hints of success? Well, it was the CEO of Clate Mask, Infusionsoft, told openly about the cruel beginning of the business co-founded more than 10 years ago. Infusionsoft, which received $ 54 million of venture capital from Goldman Sachs, has developed ahead of time before undergoing this important growth capital injection.
Maske says that there was a struggle for survival everyday in the early age. Cash flow and business experience are important, but the real secret begins in your mind with your success, your attitude, your attitude, and your positive thinking, he says. That is what you fight.
