Many businesspeople complain that they can't attract the funding and talent they need to get ahead. But what they really need are better opportunities

 

You may start with all the money and talent in the world, but if you pursue a bad opportunity, you’ll get nowhere. Even if you put your nose to the grindstone, work night and day, and execute perfectly, you’ll be fortunate just to survive. 

 

On the other hand, if you pursue a breakthrough opportunity, you’ll probably attract all the money and talent you need. 

 

In fact, you’ll attract people who are willing to share the risk with you, as well as the gain.  You’ll be able to put together a first-class team that can transform the opportunity into a successful business

 

These days, venture capitalists are providing funding of millions of dollars to twenty something kids with no experience. Why? Because those kids are pursuing billion dollar opportunities.

 

Remember this: great opportunities are like powerful magnets, which attract all the money and talent you need to become successful.
