Who do you revere most for mentorship or inspiration?
There’s a number of different individuals I go to for mentorship and inspiration. However, most of the individuals have the same quality in common – they’re brutely honest with me. Although nearly everyone appreciates flattery from time to time, I don’t look to my mentors for flattery, I look to them with the goal of bettering myself. This includes them being honest with me so I can recognize where my faults are and take action to improve them.
What business-related book has inspired you the most? (or, What is your favorite book?)
I am a big fan of “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie. This was one of the first books I read when I was learning about qualities a good leader. I highly recommend it to anyone in sales or anyone who is in a leadership role.
What traits do you consider important when hiring a new employee?
When hiring a new employee, I highly regard their communication skills. Clear and concise communication is essential both internally and externally. I usually ask a potential employee to send me a sample of recent business emails that they’ve written and/or business articles that they’ve written.
How do you brainstorm ideas for your organization?
My mind never stops working. I rarely take time to stop and brainstorm ideas because it’s a continual process. The most important thing I remind myself to do is to write my ideas down. Since my mind is always thinking of new marketing techniques, new business ideas, and ways to make things more efficient, the most important thing for me to do is to rein in my ideas and evaluate each one for quality.
What steps have you taken to grow and develop as a leader?
My mindset is that you should never stop learning. I try to learn at least one thing per day that will benefit my life or the lives of those around me. If I have a question about how to handle a situation, I’ll ask someone I admire and respect who has been in a similar situation. I genuinely believe that there’s always room for improvement and growth as a leader.
How do you keep yourself organized throughout the week?
I write out everything I need to do for the following week on Friday. On Monday morning, I prioritize the list, incorporating new developments that may have arisen over the weekend. My prioritization list is very fluid. However, when I start a task, I see it through to completion, if possible. If you let your mind jump from thing to thing continually, you’ll be left with multiple unfinished projects and that’s not a good way to work
What motivates you every morning?
I’m motivated by the fact that every day is new day. In my life, I’ve learned that you never know what a day may bring and that’s exciting to me. I may have the entire day planned out and one urgent phone call from a high priority client my change the entire direction of my day. I like having a schedule, but I also enjoy the uncertainty that each day brings.
Do you think entrepreneurs are typically less risk-averse?
Most definitely! You will find very few risk-averse entrepreneurs. The idea of quitting a day job and venturing out on your own is a scary idea for most individuals. This is especially true since statistics have said that 50% of business will fail within the first year.
