I have been thinking about the great learnings I've had in the past 3 decades in business as an entrepreneur.
I am privileged to have represented over 100 of the world's top speakers and I have modelled what makes the very best of them successful.
And, I implemented these strategies and behaviours over time.
You see, there have been years when I kicked massive goals, was awarded the Business Review Weekly (BRW) Fast 100 Companies for 3 consecutive years in a row, produced 4,508-person events, held 1206 events in 7 countries and there have been years when I struggled, wondering how to pay the rent and wages.
When noticing what these entrepreneurs did differently I observed a key distinction. They did the following things consistently.
Whenever I did the same, my results were phenomenal.
I believe we all need help in business via a sounding board of a trusted group of mentors, coaches and people in our network. Someone to share ideas with and to give you feedback. This is without a doubt one of the most important things you can implement, especially if you work alone.
Please let me know if you have any questions about any of the points above, or have any feedback.
