What does a Rubik's Cube have to do with your small business succeeding?

Owning a small business is a lot like playing trying to conquering a Rubik's Cube!

If someone hands you a Rubik's Cube and you starting twisting it in all different directions, you probably will not succeed in solving it.  On the other hand, if you prepare for it and have a strategy you will most likely succeed.  

That lesson was taught to me by my eight year old grandson, Caden, who has a very high IQ to start with.  He went on line and watched videos posted by Rubik Cube masters.  Now when you hand him a scrambled Rubik Cube, he solves it in just a few twists!

In a small business, you also need to be prepared and have a well thought out strategy to make your business succeed.  Study the success of other entrepreneurs,  talk to people in your industry that have blazed the path for you, seek out a mentor or establish an advisory board to guide you.  

Like a Rubik's Cube, you need to tweak your business until everything lines up before you can declare victory!
