This is the second part for those who did not make it to NAC and would like short, sharp sharings.
Speaker: Les Brown
1) Shared a personal refusal to accept how decades after his mother single-handedly brought up seven children, those very same seven grown-up adults now could not look after their ill mother. He took her in to nurse her. Where in your business and life are you saying you “can’t” when really it is about whether you “want” to or not?
2) Showed a picture of him with the Jackson 5. At that time all of them had yet to make it big in their respective arenas, were considered nobodys and didn’t even know who they were going to become. Who are the people around you, how are you seeing them and how are you presenting yourself? You are special and have greatness in you.
3) Create partnerships. You can’t and don’t have to make it all by yourself. Solo entrepreneurship is overrated. Who are you partnering and collaborating with?
Speaker: Rohan Weerasinghe and Matthew Snedden
1) In property investment, have a strategy first, then look at the area, then look at specific properties. Too many people do it the other way around. Do you have a speaking business strategy or are you too busy being in the business of speaking?
2) Always know the bank’s valuation before buying. Then buy below market value. What is the value you are giving your customers and clients? At the end of your engagement do they consider themselves having got a bargain or overpaid?
3) Their programme incorporates learning and principles from Robert Kiyosaki. For those yet to establish a powerful branding, who can you borrow credibility from? For those with an established name, who can be your champion mouthpiece?
Speaker: Peter Sage
1) Failure is trying to do too many things, where you learn so many things and end up doing nothing due to overwhelm and confusion. Marketing ideas, technology platforms, market penetration strategies, product development possibilities etc are all well and good, and your business will require those over the long run., But right now, right this period, what is the one thing you are focused on?
2) Capital vs Initiative. You don’t need more money, you just need a better strategy. Gave great examples of how a better strategy brings in the money. One question to ask: Who else can benefit from this business/deal?
3) Don’t give away programmes for free. “If I don’t put a value on it, you will not value it.”
