Joe Ball 60 Years — We’d like to note that 2016 marks the 60th year that Joe Ball of American News Service in Bala Cynwyd, Pa. has been an entrepreneur and business owner.
His ventures have included advertising agency, newspaper and book publishing, and radio.
“My son-in-law, Rob Meyers, an entrepreneur himself, put the aforementioned in perspective recently when said to me: ‘You’ve had a good run!'” Ball says.
He is providing these tips for those interested in entrepreneurship:
Have a sense of humor
Hire and work with smart people
Do not hear the first “No”
Read newspaper & books
Give before you get
Best contacts are person-to-person
Invest disposable income
Say “Thank you”
Be a doer – – and do it now
Do things in moderation
Live in today
Find an occupation where you look forward to your day. (I tell people: “I haven’t worked a day in my life”)
Your ideas ideas/goals mean zero, unless you put them into being
He notes that he is still the first one in the office and last to leave.
