John Verne is an accomplished business personality and avid entrepreneur. His vast experience in creating, growing as well as selling business has made him an expert in the field. Through a podcast dubbed as Knowledge For Men, Verne shared his advice about how individuals can get out from their comfort zone and succeed in business.
- Be a Leader
Verne advises individuals to become leaders as opposed to being bosses. He does this by comparing a boss and a leader. A boss utilizes his title to attain his goals. A boss not only demands respect from others but also does what is best for him. On the contrary, a leader makes sure that he earns the respect of his subjects. He then uses the earned respect to meet the goals that he and his team members have put in place.
Avoid situations that are win-lose. This means that you should try as much as possible to attain a win-win situation. In business, this means a win for you, for your employees and for your customers.
- Be a Good Listener
According to Josh Verne, you should speak less and instead listen more. Talking less makes you to sound and appear more authoritative. This is because your words will be more meaningful.
- Healthy work-life Balance
This means that you need to make progress in different areas of your life. Hence, make sure that you improve your personal growth, relationships, health and wealth on a daily basis.
- Identify your Passion
Finding something you are passionate about is important to avoid being bored. Finding your passion will allow you to wake up early and skip irrelevant events without being forced to do so.
