I came across this video clip over the weekend and it’s a great illustration of harnessing your passion to fuel business success. John Nese was able to take a childhood idea and turn it into a thriving niche retail business that empowered him to tell the giants of the industry (Coke and Pepsi) that he wasn’t interested in selling their products. I almost felt like I was watching a scene from the movie “Being There” because Mr. Nese makes everything so easily understandable. His passion is undeniable and it goes beyond just being a soda pop enthusiast. Here are my takeaways from this great story:
1. Know your customer.
2. Know your product.
3. Know your market.
4. Maintain a clear vision and execute.

Do you have an idea for a new business? Is it a little bit “outside of the box”? If you truly believe you have an
idea/invention/business that brings value to the market, then put your head down and push the rock forward. Don’t listen to the cynics out there. Those are the same people who would never take the risk and they don’t have the confidence that you have.
If you can dream it, you can do it. Everyone looked at Susan Boyle on “You’ve Got Talent” and jumped to the conclusion that she would not be successful. They were dead wrong.
If people look at your idea and doubt you or doubt that you can be successful in a down economy, they’re wrong. Watch this clip, be inspired and enjoy the success you know you’re capable of achieving.
