The key to success is surrounding yourself with the right kind of people. This is true for any area you are focused on in your life. If you’re an entrepreneur having friends and acquaintances who own or aspire to own their own businesses is a huge boon. Losing weight and getting fit a goal? Spend more time at the gym, join a running club, or participate in an online forum like Daily Burn.
