11 Years. 11 Tips for Success.

Written by 

On August 5, 2013, Serendipity Media celebrated eleven years of service. As I look back on those eleven years, it’s amazing to think about where we started and how far we’ve come. Our business model has remained fairly consistent, but our company has seen so many changes over the years. 


Our success hasn’t come easy, but the lessons I’ve learned have been remarkable. Here are my top eleven tips for success.

1. Never lose site of your mission, and make sure your decisions support your mission.

2. Rely on your teammates’ expertise; that’s what you hired them for.

3. Always trust your intuition. 

4. Be sure you are always working on your business.

5. Don’t be afraid to say no. Sometimes, new business isn’t right for your business.

6. Don’t be afraid to make the tough decisions; they are often the right ones. 

7. To grow, you must make an investment physically, emotionally, and monetarily.

8. Don’t be all things to everyone. Know what you are good at, and stick with it.

9. Surround yourself with good mentors and communicate with them. You’ll be amazed how good advice can transform your business. 

10. Show your team members you care!

11. Celebrate your successes!

Eleven years is a long time, and I realize that these tips are nothing new to anyone. That being said, I think it’s easy to lose sight of the basics. If you stay focused and are consistent and committed, you will be successful in the end.
