Notes from Today’s Episode:
- Don’t wait to be spoon-fed, take initiative and own your learning and progress
- Be active about learning; learning never ends
- Bring value to the table, there is something you can do
- Beginnings most times might not be easy, being passionate and patient will yield bountiful dividends in time
- Take ownership of whatever you do, wherever you are
- Being a Freelancer and running an Agency is totally different, there are so many things needed to run an Agency – Leadership skills, client management, finance and a host of other things
There are some myths about business and Entrepreneurship; if you want to go into business, you need to understand that Business is work, you will work harder than the average person, wake earlier than the average person, but if you are really passionate about business, in time it is going to be worth it, you will need to be patient. Three important things to note is that you need to be Passionate, Competent and once there is a market for your product and/or service you will thrive.
