Ann Sieg’s “21 Suggestions For Success” (Video #16)

“Be a self starter.”

This would seem like an obvious suggestion for success.

Especially if you’re an entrepreneur.   

I had the good fortune to have this modeled for me in my growing up years. I wouldn’t even know what it would be like to not be a self starter.  It’s just way too much fun to be a self-starter. 

Listen in my video for how I look for self starters in business building.  Then comment and weigh-in on this suggestion for success. 

Question: Does this define you?

  1. Hi Anne,
    When I was in the military, my Sarge would tell us all the time, “You don’t have to like it, you just have to do it.” And it’s like that with self-starters, we have to do whatever is required of us to reach our goals whether we like it or not. There is nobody forcing me to study, learn & apply. There is nobody making me get up after 4 to 5 hours of sleep to make the calls or write the blog posts. Only my dreams & goals drive me to what I have to do on a daily basis. Self starting comes from within.
    Thanks ,

  2. I am very much a self starter. So what do you ask people to find out if they are?

    • Great question, Kristy. One thing to do is simply ask them, “Do you consider yourself a self-starter”? This would especially important, if for example, you’re looking for potential team builders. The question is totally relative to the situation at hand. The other aspect is simply watch people’s behavior. As a business builder I’m always watching for go-getters versus folks who sit on the side lines.

  3. Lloyd Miller says:

    I will have nothing to do with badgering, unrelenting, clueless marketers.
    { That’s you guys} I hope you ge the message.

    I never kno0w if or when you do since you never, never make a reply that has any sensible connection with what I have sent to you.

    OR STATEMENT by me indicating a cooperation or colusion or marketing attempt of any kind that has to do with you or any organization you operate.

    Please refund any and all charges, including the $68.00 I have already paid to you. Do not overlook this.

    Then send to me a note dfplease, that you have indeed achieved this request.

  4. Hey Ann, I agree with Edwin. I too was in the military and you don’t need some body to tell you what to do every second of the day. If you see something that needs to be done you just get up and get the job done. Though I’m still working, I always find myself taking the lead. After you’ve been in the military for a number of years, It just becomes first nature. So yes, I am a leader and self starter.

  5. Great information in your videos you give out so much value thanks for the info.
