The Most Important Business Tips From Donald Trump

Today I found an email I had sent to my husband a couple of years ago – it contained tips from a Donald Trump book called ‘The Way to the Top’. All the tips are from Business Leaders – they are true classics in my opinion and worth considering often in good times and when we are being challenged.

With most communication happening via email nowadays – a quick review of your Inbox and Sent Items can be extremely rewarding. I have on average around five to seven thousand messages in my Inbox and about half that amount again in my Sent Items. When I do a ‘clean out’ I review each email and then hit the delete button.

The Tips – In No Particular Order Of Preference

  • Follow Your Heart
  • Only Results Count – don’t confuse effort with results!
  • Trust but Verify
  • Recipe for Success – Keep going, gather good people around you to do what you can’t and focus on your gift!
  • Contribute to the Community
  • During an Upturn – prepare for the downturn
  • The Harder you work the luckier you get
  • Make mistakes – Don’t be afraid to make calculated mistakes – you can always fix them. What’s important is to get the facts, make a decision – remember making no decision is in fact a decision
  • There is no substitute for hard work

Top Business Tips for Starting a Business That Will Succeed

Starting a business for the first time and worried about failure? Give your new enterprise the best chance of success with these top business tips, the best advice I’ve collated from other entrepreneurs and developed from my own experience of more than 20 years of having “been there and done that” as a small business person.

1) Be Passionate

You don’t have to love whatever your business is about (and probably shouldn’t), but you do have to be fired up about it. You’re going to devote a lot of time and energy to starting a business and building it into a successful enterprise, so it’s really important that you truly deeply enjoy what you do, whether it be running fishing charters, creating pottery, or providing financial advice.

2) Start While You Are Still Employed

How long can most people live without money? Not long. And it may be a long time before your new business actually makes any profits. Being employed while you’re starting a business means money in your pocket while you’re going through the start-up process.https://bd8b2eac3c19fc6b35602296aa1bd9f5.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html

3) Don’t Do it Alone

You need a support system while you’re starting a business (and afterward). A family member or friend that you can bounce ideas off and who will listen sympathetically to the latest business start-up crisis is invaluable. Even better, find a mentor or, if you qualify, apply for a business start-up program such as the ones provided through Futurpreneur Canada. When you’re starting a business experienced guidance is the best support system of all.
