In this video men’s style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of talks about 10 entrepreneurial lessons he has learned over the years. Being and entrepreneur is an amazing career choice but there are definitely some things you need to be aware of before you get started. These 10 business lessons are ones that I learned and wanted to share with you.

Aaron Marino of alpha m. says that if you told him 10 years ago that he would be successful by talking to a camera about how he shaves his testicles, he would have punched you in the face. Back then, he thought success was owning a chain of fitness centers. Success doesn’t always look like you expect. Being an entrepreneur is not easy! But Alpha has learned valuable lessons along the way which he shares here.

Valuable Business Lessons

1. Choose business partners wisely – do background checks. It’s like a marriage and legally binding.

2. Control overhead expenses – you pay everyone else before you’re paid.

3. Don’t be afraid of hard work – the mountain is steep, and you have to climb it.

4. Take your pride and throw it out the window – you will have to do any and everything to be successful. Swallow your pride.

5. Know when it’s time to move on – “Shoot the bleeding dog.”

6. Look for opportunity everywhere – search out for markets that are unfulfilled

7. Hire smart and surround yourself with good people – not just qualified but people who you want to be associated with; those with good moral character and compasses

8. Be honest and ethical in everything you do

9. Success is not always what you expect it to or want it to

10. Do what you love and then it’s not work!

    My economic position is over secure I created all the firms necessary to tap into all the energy spectrums on earth. If you are thinking about cash flow and all that, that way is over, there are even public traded companies that don’t bother to make a profit.

    This is an excellent video and I think most people can relate to its content whether you’re an entrepreneur or not. I didn’t move on soon enough from a job prior to start my current business and it was a huge mistake. I was promised the world and received nothing and it prompted me to start my own business so I didn’t have to get pushed down by someone else any longer.

    That said, this video prompted me to get the ball rolling on my next venture immediately after watching. I pondered the idea and basically said “I’ll get to it.” That’s not good enough; so I got the licensing applications in and put an email to a web developer to get some ideas going on a website and mobile app and I think it’s going to be “yuuuge.” Thanks Alpha!

    This was an awesome and very honest video. These are the types of videos people need to see on a day to day basis. It helps to know the hard truths about anything but it also helps to hear the ups about anything. Thank you for this type of encouragement for people like me that plans to start a new business.

    This is a solid video, showing the hard parts of entrepreneurial risk. Tying in your personal experience is a fantastic way to relate these concepts. I may have to look at my own material and evaluate ways to explain by example. Thanks Aaron.

    I have spent the last 15 years in restaurants. I have the dream of opening my own. I formulated a formal business plan and met with my city’s economic development director, have a real dollar amount for opening with continuing operating costs. My plan is to make my restaurant very unique. I have completely changed the process up to and including integrated modern technology. Securing funding was the only roadblock I’ve experienced. It doesn’t mean that this has failed, in fact I view it only as a ready to plan. It would be backwards to find a financier without a business plan. I honestly feel as if I’m on the right highway, it’s just not my exit. Finding funding first in that analogy is getting on that highway, you most likely will get in a head-on collision.

    So in the meantime I’ve started a small vending business to help fund my restaurant. I still add or alter my business plan nearly monthly as I learn of new products and competitors.
    I feel the best way to say it is a from The Rolling Stones “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes well you might find, you get what you need.”

    So true, it took me almost 4 years to give up my first business and admit it tanked. Now I just started my 2nd business, I have a good business partner and things are more structured and organized. 😀

    Very Realistic view. It’s definitely hard, but it’s much harder giving up. Shout out to all the hustlers out there!
