He explained, “The biggest risk is not taking any risk…In a world that’s changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.” We at Next Generation Marketing, Inc. agree with the young mogul’s words wholeheartedly, and we consistently take calculated risks that pay off in big ways.


Merlin Mann, the founder of 43 Folders and a successful podcaster, urges professionals to take action and avoid procrastination. He commented, “Go a little easier on yourself, and in so doing, be prepared to make and do things that might seem silly at first. Just keep moving; don’t ruminate and stare at the wall…go out and produce something.” This is powerful advice that will help you make positive progress toward ambitious goals every single day.


Eric Ries, author of the influential book “The Lean Startup,” believes entrepreneurial success is a matter of maintaining the right habits. In his words, “Start-up success is not a consequence of good genes or being in the right place at the right time. Success can be engineered by following the right process, which means it can be learned, which means it can be taught.”
