Business Rockstars Minute: The High IQ Myth

By Owen Linderholm | Small Business

We are continuing our series of Business Rockstars Minute videos that are excellently presented by Ken Rutkowski. They cover a range of small business topics, especially for entrepreneurs, and give you a real quick start on the topic and are a great point for jumping off. We are going to run these regularly and we will try to provide a few options for more in depth exploration on your own afterward. We also recommend that you check out their daily live shows over at Business Rockstars as well. But most importantly, please let us know what you think in the comments. We want your feedback on how you like these and on future topics.

One of the persistent and most misleading anchorweights holding prospective entrepreneurs and business owners back is that they aren't smart enough. The reality is that intelligence has little to do with success. Not nothing, but it is way down the list of required characteristics for success. Others, like persistence, dedication, focus, common sense and work ethic are far, far more important. Ken Rutkowski talks about the issue in this short video. As usual, more in dpeth links can be found below the video.
