This recently from the Internet, I got to learnt a lot about people, process and product from a very successful entrepreneur Marcus Lemonis.
Over the years, I have made a lot of mistakes. Some of which are either due to my bad communication, or I have listened to wrong advice.
Listening to wrong advice is one of the worst thing I had done (especially only this recently) when I actually know that the adviser has no track record. But I won’t blame him because it is my choice indeed to follow his advice. What I am actually do now is to salvage all the possible things and improve my current situation. It has in fact helped me to build a better process and people in the end though some sacrifices may have been done.
Bad communication is something that I have to deal with as I will usually have very little sleep time while dealing with multiple things at the same time. My bad communication may be due to my priority of not wanting to communicate in details to the things that are unimportant to me. Other times, it could have been due to work overload or work fatigue.
In any case, my mentality is that if something needs to fail, let my laziness not be the reason.
I have some really good products because of my regional experience and deep knowledge in digital marketing. I had struggled a lot with the process because I have been trying to do everything by myself initially. Subsequently, I started working on streamlining things to see what’s working and not. I have also been working on the people side because I have started to build a new team and they need my various support to get into the process effectively.
It is critical to me currently to get everything to work. My team is working hard with me. I have to get them all up and running so that we can cross this stage together! Thank God for bringing me this far…
