No you aren’t in elementary school anymore, but yes you do still need to follow the rules. That’s because no matter your walk of life, you have rules and this is especially true when you own a business. Just like a flower grows according to the rules of its DNA, you have to learn the rules of the game you want to grow in. You need to make the effort to learn those rules because this can be the difference between success and failure for your business.

So, to get you started, here are some things you can do to learn those rules and take any advice you can get so that you can build your film endeavor.

  • Work Hard

    Some people think that once they become a business owner and their company becomes successful to an extent, they will be able to stop working. That isn’t the case, though. The business owners who are willing to get in the trenches and keep working hard are the ones who find the most success.

  • Ask Others

    No matter how much you know about something, there is something else you can learn. Your goal should be to seek out people who know more than you and then ask them questions. You can learn so much about the rules of the game and what you need to do in order to make your business even more successful.

  • Read

    There are plenty of books, articles, eBooks, and blogs out there that can help you learn more about the rules of the game. Find them and read them. You will be surprised at how much you can learn and what a difference it will make in how you handle things within your business.

  • Practice

    Practice makes permanent. Don’t just think about them or dwell on them. Find out what happens when you use them and learn how to put them to work in the real world. An idea will do nothing if you don’t act on it, so once you learn something, practice it and learn how to get things right.

  • Do

    Yep. Put them in to practice. Understand the spirit for the rule not just memorize the letter of the law. There’s a difference and know that really separates the good from the great.

  • Repeat

    Once you have it all figured out. Start from step one again in an area that runs parallel to your area of expertise. Being well-rounded has never been a bad thing.
