There is some advice that applies to every job. Recently I was cleaning out a bookshelf and came across the July 2014 Entrepreneur magazine. This particular issue featured an article entitled "The Best Advice You Will Ever Get." Below are three bits of wisdom that resonated with me:
1. "Stop being so scared, and jump." - Rehan Choudhry, founder, Life is Beautiful : "What makes an entrepreneur is not knowing everything about business, but rather being passionate and fearless. There is no 'right time' to take the leap; you can take it at any point in your life, and should."
2. "Trust yourself." - Nick Lazaris, president and CEO, Coravin : "In business, you have to act on your instincts because, ultimately, you will be the one who is responsible. If your decision fails, it ought to be something that you really believed in. You want to be able to own up to it and learn from it."
3. "Focus on what makes you different." - Khajak Keledjian, co-founder and chief executive, Intermix: "Creativity is to see what everyone else sees but think of what nobody else thought of. Focusing on what makes you different, really is the most important way to stand out..."
Let's start the conversation - what is the best advice you have ever received?
