Leadership is hard. It’s not about giving commands and mandates; it goes beyond that. You have to get involved with people, care about them. It’s about influence. You see successful leaders deliver results through relationships. With that said, you can tell a lot how someone leads by the way his / her followers behave.

There is a lesson all entrepreneurs have to learn and that’s how to pick your battles. This is one thing that I took a lot of time in learning. When I was just starting out in college I took on all challenges that came my way. I just didn’t know how to say no because I wanted to fix everything.
There’s this belief that technology is innovation. It’s a limiting belief. I get it, it’s sexy. It gets a lot of attention, but innovation is about more than technology. You can innovate in business model, management, processes and other areas too.
I recently joined a chat of entrepreneurs and a person brought up the topic of business growth. Specifically, she said that someone who is not willing to spend money on advertising to grow a business is not an entrepreneur.
Last year I wrote about dealing with failure. I’ve experienced it a handful of times; we all have. As an entrepreneur, the main message is that you should expect it. Losing, making mistakes, it’s part of life. It happens to all of us. And those that don’t experience failure aren’t really living their best life; they’re content with simply sticking to a safe and predictable routine.
