Here at Training Kings we value our members and are always keen to support them in their personal and professional development. To this end we often invite our members to be guest speakers at our breakfast and dinner events.
At the March Tooting dinner event we were delighted to have Caron Leo (a member and partner of Training Kings) join us as the guest speaker. The title of her presentation was ‘5 things I have learned in business….so far’
Caron cleverly used her name as an acronym to guide us through her learning process.
C – Creative (How can you create something new?)
A – Ambitious (Think big)
R - Resilience (How to continually overcome difficulties)
O – Opportunities (Keeping your eyes and ears open for new opportunities)
N – Nice (Be kind and good to others along your journey)
As Caron stated it is never going to be plain sailing but the challenges are usually indicators that you are on the right path. She quoted Richard Branson who said ‘Just say yes and sort out the details later’.
Whether you are an established business owner or just starting out on your entrepreneurial journey these are excellent observations that you can draw on. When faced with a challenge or obstacle I ask myself the question ‘How can I look at this problem in a different light?’. As you adapt your thinking, then invariably a solution occurs to you.
Keep going guys – for whilst no one ever said it (entrepreneurship) would be easy, it will most definitely will be worth it.
