Don’t be a victim
After listening to Bruce's interview last night with Astral and all the news of the past few weeks from Brexit, to the upcoming US elections, to tightening credit, to low growth and poor paying corporates. It's very easy to find reasons not to succeed!
When I reflect on what happened this month, 2 things stand out.
First we got our results on the portfolio of businesses we work with at Aurik. From June 2015 to July 2016, 253 entrepreneur that we work with grew turnover an average 63.8% from an average annual turnover across the portfolio of R17.8 million.
Secondly, I was asked by a CEO that we work with to grow their customer basse whether we sector pick or not. The answer is no, we pick entrepreneurs.
It is these four actions that are consistent across the entrepreneurs (and they have very little to do with business), making them behaviours that we can all apply in our everyday lives!
- Work with what you have, not what you need
- Get the world to respond to you, don't respond to the world
- Don't blame
- Spread your risk
