3 Ways To Make Your Own Luck And Give Your Business The Best Chance For Success

What role does luck play in your business? Did you spend St. Patrick’s Day putting up four-leaf clovers from the yard and chasing rainbows?

A new survey from online small business community and directory, Manta, had nearly 4 in 10 respondents say luck has not played any role in their business success – and ranked it last behind hard-work, networking, good hiring decisions, timing and the economy as the factor that has had the biggest impact on their company.

You definitely can’t rely on luck to make your business a success. A poorly run business won’t be successful no matter how much luck gets thrown your way. But luck has to play a part, however small. That you were born in the right place, in the right era to make your business work is luck.

But I can’t very well write a post with tips on how to be lucky, so let’s look at the tangible, concrete things you can do for you business, as mentioned by Manta’s survey respondents.
