In the modern world succeeding in the business has become a significant challenge to business people as it takes perseverance, intelligence, and creativity vital principles many entrepreneurs lack. Therefore, a mentor acts as a bridge to new entrepreneurs aiding them in making the right decisions necessary for prosperity.
Robert Deignan shares several key points which have made him rise and maintain his status in the business world.
- Have trust in yourself
Self-confidence in your imagination is the first drive to success, and it goes hand in hand with belief. At times decisions we think of may fall on either side of advantage or disadvantage, but more often than not initial guts are always right. Deignan emphasizes that time wasting in business is fatal therefore an entrepreneur should be courageous enough to act quickly on the ideas he is thinking of and move on to the next decision.
- Write down ideas
Robert says the idea of writing down your plans helps a lot in predicting the results. An idea in your head should be tabled down to crunch the numbers, as it may sound nice but the numbers will define the reality of your plan.
- Hire the right employees
Managers hiring employees should not only be motivated to look for educational qualifications instead they should go beyond that and identify those who are willing to learn and whose beliefs match yours. Avoid employing close relatives since they can lead to biased decisions during promotions.
