A few wealth tips from Kevin Green
#1: Be determined to succeed
… if the pain of where you are now is not great enough you will not change. Willpower is key.
#2: Know yourself well as self-awareness
… is the master key to success. Listen to your heart before your head and follow your ‘gut’ feel.
#3: Know your industry inside out
… market research is the key, invest in yourself and learn from people who are where you want to be.
#4: Do not use middle men
… until well established as this increases risk of failure. Learn to do and execute well. Hard work at the start pays dividends.
#5: Keep business simple to start with
… Do not try to re-invent the wheel and access the best advice from people who are acting on the advice they give others.
#6: Link into power teams
… that are the best in their field. Bill Gates once quoted to me ”an organisation is only as great as the people that are in it and surround it”.
#7: Set clear goals, follow your heart and dreams
… they are like goals with wings on and are the biggest driver that originates from within oneself.
#8: Plan at least two exit strategies
… for every proposal i.e. Plan A and Plan B – looking at the worst case scenarios and providing a solution to the potential problems before beginning to implement the strategy.
#9: Do not waste a second of your time
… Sir Richard Branson quoted that to me in the year 2000 and I have now made it one of my mantras.
#10: Enjoy what you are doing
… because success is the journey, not the destination!
