Richard Branson is THE man - so what were the 6 tips he offered at a recent networking event?

  1. Take risks, but always have a back-up plan;
  2. Get creative with marketing;
  3. Hire great people'
  4. Be human - "..the way to get the most out of people is to be their friend, listen to them, human - it applies to men as well as women.";
  5. Be flexible in your business;
  6. Be a force for good - "...all businesses should give back to the community."

These look pretty simple - deceptive really because we all know how much of a challenge each one is in practice.  Maybe the solution could be to concentrate on one every 2 months - at the end of 12 months - where would you be?

Which of the 6 tips do you think would make the most difference to your business?

Check out Sir Richard Branson: 6 tips to building a great business for more information.

Inspiring tips from Sir Richard - I will be taking these to our next practice meeting. And excellent suggestion from Judy on pacing ourselves when trying to apply the tips! We are more likely to succeed if we approach the task in a thoughtful and considered manner rather than a mad rush. Thanks Judy!
