Get the work done!
As discussed in my previous posts, WORK is another production factor next to capital and information.
In generell, a production factor is a principle, a statement or call it a rule which can´t be reduced. It is consistent. It´s one of three tools to run and understand a complex process which is your business.
When interviewing the Foundry Group they gave the secret advice of doing your work: meet with various Company Managers, meet new people in the industry, call and meet potential customers, exercise your own network of contacts to get the background idea and team. Perform some reference checks on Key Mgmt. All this is relevant when you enter a long-term partnership with a company. Check them out!
You may ask now: “how can I check those people out? ” It´s easier than you think –
BLOGS are good indications of the varied personalities. Provide a list of references. Find a few reference points for deals that didn´t go well – this is particularly important. You really learn about someones true character in those situations.
You grow your business once your basic work is done – no skyscraper grows by adding just one level!
So check their drive! Just do your home-work and there won´t be any surprises afterwards. Check out new trends of the community, engage with the ecosystem, but just don´t rest behind the desk….
Enjoy your work!
Care about being successful!
Work hard to be so!
BE A DECISION MAKER. BECOME OUTSTANDING.
