This post is part of the 📖 Start From Zero series.
Today I continue reading chapter 10 in the Adventure section of the book Start From Zero.
The goal of this book is to build the brain of an entrepreneur, one that can create meaningful businesses and income streams from nothing.
There are three big concepts at play here. These concepts are what give you an excellent advantage. The first is pattern recognition. The second is applying a framework to organize information. The third is this actual framework: Customer, Pain, Solution, Offer. CPSO (customer, pain, solution and offer)
”Having a successful business is not what makes you happy. Being happy is what makes you happy.”
Author Dane Maxwell says, chillout and take your time to find the right business that sets your heart on fire. A rushed business won’t work out very well.
Take your time. Go slow. Do you want a solid income stream—not a business built on sand, right?
When you put yourself first and set up a business to take care of you, it creates a wonderful regenerative state.”
The author Dane Maxwell says you should obsess over your business model until it takes great care of you. And you can do this in literally any industry. Here are the criteria for my most valuable businesses:
Author Dane gave an example of his own rules in his business. Here you go.
- Automated sales (people sign up without speaking to me).
- Recurring revenue (people pay me monthly for years).
- I sell tools (instead of providing a service).
- I get paid upfront.”
Break any of these rules you will sacrifice your ability to generate wealth.

In businesses self-love is important. When you put yourself first and set up a business to take care of you, it creates a wonderful regenerative state.
You can create a business that takes care of you and fills you up but doesn’t drain you.
Most of us don’t focus on questions like… “How can I set this business up to take care of myself?” Most of us just ask, “How can I get something working and successful?” Then we forget ourselves. Don’t do that, ok?
