Steve insists that if you have a weakness the “law of success” will find you out. For example, if you are good at creating leads, but don’t follow up on those leads very well, then you will not be successful. If you get lots of people to your website, but you don’t have any lead capture devices on your site, then that is going to be very costly.
Steve also believes that the world can be unsporting. The player or the business that has the edge gets all the rewards. The difference between winning and losing at any sport often hangs on a single point. In business, a prospect types a key word into Google looking for a specific service and then selects maybe three websites to take a look at. Only one company gets that £50,000 order! The ones who finish second and third get nothing – not even a silver or bronze medal. Harsh, but true!
