When looking for growth and expansion opportunities location is keybut before opening, consider the size of your target market. You need to be sure that you will be capturing more of that market by opening that new location. and not just making it easier for some of your existing clients. Location is not just the building, it can also be within the building. Being on the ground floor, being very visible, being close to an entrance or where people are going to walk past, being near the anchor tenant, all those are choice areas. Your client base is one of the most valuable things that you are going to have.Those are people who if you treat them right and appreciate them, they will come back. They are also the ones who, if you disappoint, can also do a lot of damage because they have experienced you. They will talk with authority.As you build your client base, understand who these people are, their preferences. Ask questions, get their feedback, especially feedback that is not positive, because that is what will tell you where you can learn and grow.

If you keep telling yourself that you will never gain success or that you are not hard-working enough to take challenging tasks, you will never ever become ambitious. Negative self-talk can destroy your self-esteem and confidence and lead to the road of misery. When you have a negative thought, try to turn it into a positive thought. Positive internal dialogue is a perfect motivator and energy-booster. When you try a lot at things, you are naturally going to fail. Don't be afraid of making mistakes or falling short. Failure is only permanent if you stop trying.Every great success story, every incredible biography, any mind blowing achievement we’ve ever heard; all of them had ambition as one of its core elements. The path to anything great cannot be reached without ambition. For example, when Thomas Edison finally created the light bulb, he famously said, "I didn't fail; I just found 2,000 ways not to make a light bulb." Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant are one of the greatest basketball player to play the sport of basketball both have set multiple all time records and have become champions of their time but yet both hold the record for all-time missed shots! That just shows that every can fail but it take someone with great ambition to succeed and move forward from their failure/mistakes.
“Don’t be afraid to be ambitious about your goals. Hard work never stops. Neither should your dreams.”

If you give up now what are your options? Where are you going to be in life? A drift? Aimless? Imagine how that is going to make you feel. Perhaps there’s a particular product or service you’ve launched that is plainly not going to be “the one.” Regard it as nothing more than a detour on your journey to success. There’s not a straight line to success. You’re going to hit bumps in the road that at the time feel like mountains. But you can get over them. In fact, making mistakes is virtually a necessary part of building a business. If you’re not making mistakes you’re not experimenting. You’re not trying new approaches. You’re not going anywhere. They key thing is to make sure that you learn from the mistakes. Most of all, don’t surrender your precious dreams because one day you will achieve them. And, when you do, the ecstasy will make all of the agony so worthwhile. Imagine being able to celebrate with your family and friends who have been rooting for your business. Just think about the pleasure you will all feel. Crossing the finishing line and winning your personal goal is a sense of accomplishment that’s almost indescribable. So go for it and don’t quit because you certainly don’t want to miss out on the experience of savoring it.Dreams are essential for an entrepreneur, and with determination you will achieve them. The road is never an easy one, but it’s absolutely worth it.
Your dreams are only awake if you are.
