 Northeast Consulting Group, Inc. believes that providing development for our people both inside and outside of work. So we thought this article fit right in for what we do here within our company. Being an Entrepreneur is not for everyone. It takes a person who is willing to put in the hard work and perseverance to achieve a high level of success.


  1. Ryan Blair – CEO of ViSalus and #1 New York Times Best Selling Author of, “Nothing to Lose, Everything to Gain.”
  • Even when you have everything to lose, act like you don’t. I used to have nothing to lose, but now that I have a lot to lose, I have a whole new perspective on this. Even after you’ve made it to the top, you still have to act like you have nothing to lose. Regardless of the amount of money a person has or the size of their company, or the amount of wealth they have—those people that take action and risk without the fear of failure are the ones that will ultimately take market share.”


  1. Nellie Akalp – CEO of CorpNet
  • Work toward being significant. If you want to have success, you can’t make success your goal. The key is to not worry about being successful, but instead work toward being significant—and the success will naturally flow. If you do the work that you love, and work that fulfills you, the rest will come. I truly believe that the reason I’ve been able to be so financially successful is because my focus has never, ever for one minute been money.”


  1. Trey Smith—founder of Kayabit Games
  • Seek and you shall find. There are thousands of clues even direct blueprints to make money if you know where to look. Find a successful company that is creating products or services that you are interested in and figure out HOW they are doing it. I use a process called reverse engineering to isolate two important factors: Their traffic and monetization. Where are they getting their people to see their products? How are they converting them into buyers? If you can answer these two questions with a systematic approach, you can start to build a business around it immediately.”


  1. Brian Sharples—Co-Founder of HomeAway
  • Love what you do. Choose something that is in line with your own personal interest and passion, then it never seems like work. Don’t be afraid to fail. It’s critical to spend the time early on hiring the right people. If you are disciplined in finding the best and brightest people who are also team players then management is easy. There is no substitute for talking directly to customers. Whether they are happy or upset about something, it feels great to connect with people who are using your products, because you immediately get a good sense for how to make it better.”


  1. Amber Schaub—Founder and CEO of
  • “Don’t let them intimidate you out of your dream. Work harder than everyone else—I may not be the most formally educated, the most financially set up, or even the smartest, but I will give them a run for their money when it comes to ambition and determination. It’s a bit cliché, but I always remember this quote: ‘Always go the extra mile, there’s a lot less traffic up there.’ Every expert was a newbie at one point—don’t let them intimidate you out of your dream. Learn as much as you can, as fast as you can. Ethics do matter—I don’t care what they say about, ‘it’s just business,’ the world comes full circle. Be competitive, but stay true to your beliefs and principals. It always comes back around eventually.”


  1. McWhinney Brothers – Chad and Troy McWhinney Founders of McWhinney Reality
  • “Focus on quality and execution. Hire exceptional people, make sure they feel valued and can work as a team. Work to achieve synergy (energy and alignment). Practice Kaizen (Japanese for ‘small improvement’ and ‘better’) everyday focus on getting a little bit better with the belief that over time outcomes become significant. Focus on expands and set outcomes that are bold, passionate, measurable, written, and positive. Worry less about growth and more about quality and execution. When you take care of your customers and exceed their expectations, growth and opportunity follow. Remember that success often comes to those who get in front of the inevitable.”


  1. Mike Byrnes—President of Byrnes Consulting LLC
  • “Be a thought leader. Based on my own experience, it pays to be a thought leader in your own industry. In today’s world, it is easy to publish your own information (including videos), but the traditional media outlets still carry a lot of weight. Get positive exposure and help others by sharing your expertise. By building up a following of strategic partners, good things will happen. On a side note, it pays to love what you do. Hard work and dedication can separate success stories from those that do not have their heart in it. As the old Confucius quote goes, ‘Find something you love to do and you will never have to work a day in your life.’”
