self is key for success. Kimberly Patek, Founder of San Diego,

#1. Be Proactive Versus Reactive. Keeping the big picture in mind
and not getting caught up in the day to day activities. Looking
ahead (i.e. 90 days) and working backwards on timelines helps
foresee conflicts, busy times and resources needed.
#2. Don't take things personally. Have a vision, always follow your intuition and know most people around you have GOOD intentions. Treat challenges with curiosity and take the time to come to a conclusion: a) was there something I could of done differently for a better outcome, b) is this challenge likely to reoccur (how much attention do I need to put into it) and c) is it my problem or perhaps something or someone just wasn't a good fit... move on.
#3. Invest more in growing your business and yourself... invest less in “stuff” or business. Start with basic tools and add things as you need it. Sometimes we learn about better things (or discounts) as we grow our business. At first introductions...listen more to others and talk some but less about your business. Be a good listener when around your clients and fellow entrepreneurs.
