Last week, I had the opportunity to go on the Hack The Entrepreneur podcast. I had a great time talking about the entrepreneur lifestyle and how the real Victory is in the journey.
As a business owner or executive, it’s far better to screen job applicants for the following five leadership traits than to hire and then fire managers who prove to be incompetent at leading others.
Here’s the deal. As a CEO you need a general working knowledge of sales, strategy, finance, marketing, etc. but you don’t have to know it all. You have to be able to put great teams together that can execute your vision.
If you have the drive and determination to be a success, build a business and become an entrepreneur, you have something that separates you from about 90% of the population.
A slovenly man sitting in his recliner watching endless hours of mindless TV.
His stomach growls with hunger pangs and hastily he grunts out the words, “Large pep pizza and a liter of soda.”
Recent tests I took show me aging over a decade slower than my chronological age. In an upcoming article I'll give you my daily routine and regimen.
Ernie’s episode on Success Unfiltered. How to power through and drive your success.
Nobody likes to talk about the tough parts of building a company. It's not the fun stuff. It's not the glamorous stories you see in magazines on the shelf, but the reality as in most things is much different.
Most people don’t realize the difference between success and failure is often very small. If you were headed to the moon and were off just 1 degree, you'd miss your target by 4,169 miles.
If you want to succeed in today's business environment you have to find ways to streamline operations, lower costs, increase efficiency and eliminate waste.
Here’s the funny part. I ended up becoming successful in an industry I originally had NO interest in being in at first. Yes, that’s right. I wanted to find something else but my true path was in front of my eyes.
I've been asked this question many times and the reality is that it's a combination of factors but here’s four that quickly come to mind. Just remember starting, growing and building a company is tough and most companies fail. Being successful is hard even in the best of times.
The victory is in the journey. You ever wonder why when you achieve a goal you feel a little empty inside? It’s okay to admit it. It might not hit you right away but eventually though the basking in your glory, the accolades and encouragement from your friends and family fades and the trophy, award or medal begins to collect dust.
Here's the reality, leadership is one of the toughest jobs you'll have because you have to be able to unite people who often have varying levels of commitment and get them to work as a team to achieve a common goal. Some say leaders are born, others say they can be made.
This is a topic I could write on in great detail but I wanted to keep it simple.
One of the biggest things you can do to become a better version of yourself is by simply working to improve.
All too often we get stuck in ruts. Not necessarily intentionally but sometimes life just seems to “get in the way”. We get derailed by the day to day part of living.
Honestly, I think it comes from within to a major degree. To become anything in life the drive has to come from you. Nobody else can instill you with lasting motivation. Motivation can't be given, you have to want with a passion so big that you become unstoppable
The dream of building a business is not for everyone. Those who have been employed at a “big company” will have to hit the reset button in their thinking.
True innovators are never satisfied with status quo. Technology moves fast, and to stay ahead of the competition and to deliver increasing value to our clients, we are looking to continually improve our solutions.
Not all of my posts are going to be purely business, that would be simply boring. It's important to have other things you're interested in and one of mine is health, fitness and self optimization. One question I get from people is what do you eat?
