Derek Halpern 10 Top Entrepreneurs Share the Best Advice They've Ever Received CreativeLive

“The best business advice I ever received came from a simple quote from John D. Rockefeller. He said, ‘next to doing the right thing, the most important thing is to let people know you are doing the right thing.’ Right now, we live in an overcrowded world, and if you’re not out there promoting yourself, you’ll NEVER make an impact. That’s why this quote is so important. Do good work and promote the heck out of it.”

Derek calls this the “80/20 Promotion-Creation Rule”. And it’s the secret to his incredible successes in blogging and online courses.
