10 things you have to be good at

You are only as good as:

  1. your skill at the thing you do;
  2. your managers;
  3. your income versus expenditure;
  4. your ability to convert prospects into patients and then into advocates;
  5. your curiosity to innovate;
  6. your balance of time between working IN and ON your business;
  7. your sleep, nutrition and exercise and time OUT of the business;
  8. your connection to peer groups;
  9. your openness to mentoring;
  10. your willingness to give something back.

Nobody said it was going to be easy.
