I was watching the Denver Nuggets versus the Los Angeles Lakers with the Nuggets blowing out the Lakers.
During blowout games, the team normally put the bench players in the game.
I usually change the channel but in the last two minutes of the game.
The Nuggets had a player (can’t recall his name) who made a tremendous block on a runaway layup and then made a remarkable dunk a few plays later.
Well, you may say ok what is the BIG deal?
If you watch most NBA games during blowouts the bench players come in the game and really do not exert any effort nor hustle.
At that point, I heard the commentator say during the last few minutes of the game NBA scouts get a chance to watch the bench players see how they perform.

Three simple lessons that apply to all entrepreneurs.
1. Regardless of the score up or down (i.e where you are at in business) continue to hustle like it is the start of the game. Just because you have been in business for years do not stop hustling. Act like you are working to get that first client.
2. Standout from the crowd– Yes, some of you maybe shy or say let my work speak for itself. I agree you should have a good product but you still need to focus on telling your story to stand out (ie. Marketing).
Like in basketball, business is a competitive sport. I’m sure that NBA player who blocked that shot and dunked the ball at the end of the game now standout in his coaches mind.
3. Somebody is always watching you. The commentator said other NBA teams watch to see the performance of those bench players. Therefore, you never know who is watching what you are doing and what opportunities may arise.
In the game of entrepreneurship, I encourage you to always hustle like the start of the game, stand out from the crowd and remember somebody is always watching you and opportunities may come from your performance.
