After reflecting on why my businesses in the last 4 years were more successful than those I tried earlier on in my career, I found one common thread linking the successful ventures (producing over a million in revenue each year).

In this eposide of Boss Up, I propose that the way to create more success is to focus on the things you're actually good at rather than the things you have to learn from scratch and hate doing.

There's a phrase I like to keep in mind as I work toward connecting with my customers -- "I like you, You like me, We are alike." This phrase contains the key to getting exactly what you want in your business.
