From Lahle Wolfe:
The best business idea is one that you are passionate about. The most valuable business skill you can develop is networking. To succeed in business it helps to have a mentor and be willing to learn from others. Surround yourself with positive people and never doubt your ability to succeed. To strike it big, you have to plan big -- dreams won't get you anywhere without momentum.
It also pays to have thick skin and always remain humble.
