What do you need to start a business? Three simple things: know your product better than anyone, know your customer, and have a burning desire to succeed. –Dave Thomas
Dave Thomas, the founder of Wendy’s Hamburger chain was a very successful business man. He was also a great philanthropist.
When Dave started Wendy’s he was very experienced with the fast food and the hamburger business. He knew burgers and he knew how to satisfy his customers. He was able to satisfy his customers because he knew his customer very well. He didn’t serve the average fast food hamburger customer. He knew what his type of customer wanted.
Those were two of the key elements he speaks of in this quote. Knowing your product better than anyone and knowing your customer. Dave was very successful at that. The greatest thing that Dave also had was a burning desire to succeed. That burning desire to succeed was what drove Dave to work as hard as he did in a market filled with fast food burgers at the time. Dave worked hard because of his burning desire to succeed. He did his own commercials for his brand because of that burning desire to succeed.
If you are an entrepreneur or a startup it would behoove you to follow the words of Dave’s quote today.
Know your product better than anyone. Know your customers. And most importantly, have a burning desire to succeed.
