Today, there aren’t too many original business ideas, products or services left. As a business owner, your goal is to be innovative—to put your mark on a product or service that makes it uniquely your own.
Brian Moran learned four lessons about being innovative in business from listening to cover songs over the years:
1. Think outside the (juke)box
2. Be unique
3. Own it
4. Embrace innovation
Life is about experience and sometimes it makes sense to give yourself four years of time—instead of debt—to work on whatever you want to do if you are destined to be successful anyway.
