Starting up and building your own successful business can be full of challenges. You need a solid team and sound policies to guide you.
Earlier this year we sat down to acknowledge our 10 year anniversary as a company and took a look at how far we’ve come and where we want to go next. There have been invaluable lessons we’ve learned along the way and take-a-ways we have adopted in order to keep our business a success. We have shared this advice with our clients and received positive feedback so decided to share it more broadly. Here are the top 10 lessons we learned in the first 10 years as a business. Whether you’re just starting up or have been around for a decade, we hope you may find these useful.
//1. Trust your gut
//2. Commit first, figure it out later
//3. Don’t ever compromise with your integrity!
//4. We are always stronger as a team
//5. Always work on personal development
//6. Always keep business and personal issues separate
//7. Validate, value and utilize your team member’s strengths
//8. Trust your business partner 100%
//9. Always strive to do better
//10. Keep everything a game and don’t get too serious about it
Life is a game! And having a successful business is just one part of it. Don’t get caught up in barriers or losses. Keep it fun and don’t get serious! Seriously!
