Respecting opinions of others, yet sharing your own is how collaborations can create genius.

The big picture is key when it comes to building business. Blakey says that if you think small, you’ll stay small. To build your empire, you must create a strong foundation, beginning with surrounding yourself with like-minded people who are also willing to go the extra mile.

10. Never Give Up
Becoming successful isn’t easy, it’s only achieved through determination and perseverance. You’ll get knocked down, not once, not twice, but potentially many times. Never give up, when things don’t go the way you planned, analyze what went wrong, find the solution and fix it. Giving up is the worst thing you can do. Blakey says it’s better to fail and try again, than quit before realizing your dreams.
