5 Lessons Entrepreneurs can learn from Drake about Success


Started from the bottom now we’re here! Aubrey “Drake” Graham, a Canadian high school dropout arrived in the rap scene back in 2009 and has released two very successful albums and dozens chart toppers since then. Here are 5 lessons you can learn from a guy from the “hood” who made it big in the real world:

1) Believe in your product/idea:

If you believe in your product or idea, there is no stopping you. You are going to face failures, you are going to face road blocks, don’t let any of that bring you down. In Drake’s case, his product was his talent.

2) All in or nothing:

Giving something you want less than a 100% is unacceptable. Drake always knew he wanted to be a rapper; he dropped out of high school to make it happen for himself. That does NOT mean you drop out of high school or college, but it does mean that you give it everything you have.

3) Make your presence felt:

When you know your product is good, make sure the world knows about it. Make some noise, make your presence felt. In the 3 years before Drake signed with Lil Wayne’s company, he released many mix tapes and became the first unsigned Canadian rapper to have his music video on BET. He made sure his voice was heard and he did it all by himself.

4) Build your team:

Everyone needs a reliable team to fall back on. Finding the right partners, mentors and team is critical to building a successful business. You can’t do it alone. You need them. With the right team and mentors, a young entrepreneur is positioned for success.

5) Learn from your competition:

Confidence is key but arrogance will destroy you. There is a fine line between arrogance and confidence. Respect your competition, they have been there longer than you have, you can surely learn a thing or two from them. Build yourself before you think of challenging anyone out there.

    Although I’m not a big Drake fan, I do respect his hustle. I love number 3 about making your presence felt. You have to go get it! No one will give it to you free.
