1. Cultivate the field (niche market) that you want to plant your product or service.

2. Plant the product or service in the field (niche market), and water it.

3. Spend time managing the field. Fear is a weed, make sure you pull them up; it can kill your progress and your business.

4. Be patient, your business will grow with the right focus, and staying steady.

5. Maximize resources, tools, opportunities, and your time that promotes growth.

6. Harvest when the time is ripe, and if it is done well, you can harvest throughout the year.

It takes time to grow a sustainable business, and if you’re too impatient then you cannot realize the potential for the business. Build your business smarter, be steady, practical, and patient; if you do it will pay off.
