Richard Lide has built several successful multi-million-dollar businesses from scratch, in the course of his career. He has also had to rebuild after one of his businesses went under.
He is a believer in the old saying that when one door closes, another one opens. Losing a promising business can be a devastating blow, but it is also an opportunity: one that enables you to emerge more experienced and more prepared.
He has learned a simple truth he didn’t learn at North Carolina A&T: business is business, and one of the keys to success is setting yourself apart from the crowd. Virtually every business market is already over-saturated; you find success by distinguishing yourself from the competition. He is wise enough now to not expect overnight success; he is in it for the long haul. You persevere while your competition gives up.
Richard Lide is now in the process of building a huge business, and getting himself back on top. His part informs his future. As a business coach, he is not a self-help guru who has never been a millionaire; he has actually done it. He is in the process of writing a book and publishing free information on YouTube and other Internet outlets.
