You have a vision for a great business and have planted the seed to its success. You must have patience while you wait for the next big thing to happen -- but that doesn't mean you shouldn't do anything else while you wait. Toronto-based entrepreneurial enthusiast Evan Carmichael says you should be patient -- not lazy. 

In this video, Carmichael recommends that you hustle while you wait. He uses an example of developing a dance studio from conception to opening day.

"It's a process -- it takes time," he says. "I need to wait for that to happen, but while I'm waiting for that to happen, I'm not just sitting on my hands. I'm doing other things, beause my goal is to grow this business."

Are you patient? What type of projects do you tackle when you're waiting for something bigger to happen?
