Liz Strauss, CoFounder of SOBCON

This always seems to be the busiest week of  the year.  Personal commitments only allowed me to be at SOBCON 2010 for one day, but here are great things I heard:

1. Hands are important for building business relationships. (@lizstrauss)

2. Put your fear aside, and step out from behind the curtain. (@lizstrauss)

3. Don’t try to build a coliseum, raise a barn.  Remember, if they build it, they will bring their friends. (@lizstrauss)

4. In order to be successful, you need to have a renewable tribe. (@jonathanfields)

5. When you choose not to execute, you risk failure for sure. (@jonathanfields)

6. The question is not is the glass half full or half empty, but what is in the glass? (@hankwasiak)

7. When you trade places with people, you can better see their truth. (@hankwasiak)

8. Find your mighty cause.  True power comes from your soul. (@hankwasiak)

9. To hell with perfection. (@hankwasiak)

10. Make desire more important than fear. (@hankwaisak)

11. Who is on your Mount Rushmore? (Who do you admire?) (@hankwasiak)

12. Never use these words – “How hard could this be?” (@beckymccray)

13. Generate paying customers while you are testing a new business. (@beckymccray)

16. Look for the “desperately” interested people. (@beckymccray)

17. I am a redneck.  I learned to shoot before I learned to multiply. (@beckymccray)

18. If your new company has no competitors then you probably have no business. (@chrisgarrett)

19. Breakthroughs happen one small step at a time. (@sharnquickbooks)

20. Live your legacy now. (@hankwasiak)
