>>> Are you up for being daring & disruptive?
There has never been a better time to be an entrepreneur. Individuality, innovation, disruption and the notion of pushing boundaries in a clever, respectful way is no longer accepted, but expected. It’s the new norm. ~ Chip Conley, Head of Global Hospitality and Strategy, Airbnb
I attended Waterman Business Centre’s recent launch of Caribbean Park, and listened to Lisa Messenger of Collective Hub share her journey building a successful brand, quickly becoming a global sensation that is now sold in 37 countries.
I particularly love Collective Hub’s vision to uplift and empower their community to live their fullest lives!
Here are my top takeouts from the Lisa’s chat to inspire you in your entrepreneurial journey:
§ Learn the power of saying no, stay true to your vision & goals.
§ Use specialists versus generalists, it will save you money in the long term.
§ Make it easy for people to say yes.
§ Be nimble, lean in to a changing market, listen to your market.
§ Step into your purpose and grow. Be a disruptor, don’t be swallowed up with HR & admin.
§ We all have something of value to exchange. Just front up and understand your triggers that don’t make you feel strong.
§ Hold a figure to strive for and start. Fail quickly and move on to collaborations.
On a final note, cash is not the only currency. Lift each other higher!
Have a fabulous week and enjoy the ride.
To your success...
