You create culture!

Bill Gates is now one of the world’s wealthiest individuals, but he didn’t earn his fortune in a straight line to success. Gates entered the entrepreneurial scene with a company called Traf-O-Data, which aimed to process and analyse the data from traffic tapes (think of it like an early version of big data).

He tried to sell the idea alongside his business partner, Paul Allen, but the product barely even worked. It was a complete disaster. However, the failure did not hold Gates back from exploring new opportunities, and a few years later, he created his first Microsoft product and forged a new path to success. The rest, as they say, is history!

So, whether you've failed or you've succeeded, you're not yet done!
“I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game-winning shot, and I missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

A common man with uncommon desire to succeed. Helping entrepreneurs be brilliant! Typically I work with business owners and senior leaders who are unhappy with how busy they are and frustrated with how little time they have to grow their business. They are disappointed with the amount of politics and hidden agendas in their organisation and concerned with the lack of cooperation and motivation from their teams. Connect with me on LinkedIn if you want to talk about getting rid of politics from your organisation and finding more time for you to focus on what matters.
