Having pain in marketing and leading your people? Eric Williams is the owner of 212 consulting, which is a marketing solution and leadership development consulting business. He has worked and helped a lot of small business owners and entrepreneurs.
Let’s look into the three keys that turned him into a successful businessman!
1. Write a eulogy and build back from there
“What do you want people to say about you when you’re gone?
…let’s dial that back and say, in the next 10 years, 5 years, next year, what do you have to do to get there?”
We all want to be remembered in a good way. And to think about your business, what do you want to achieve in the next years?
Remember that having goals are important in keeping your business.
2. Be generous
We all know the saying: it’s better to give than to receive. The more giving you are, the more will come to you.
Also, Eric shared and pointed out that being generous is the biggest thing in his success.
“I know that if I’m generous with my time, resources, knowledge, and abilities, then I know I’m going to win.”
3. Provide the most value to others
“Every day I wake up, I think, ‘how can I provide the most value to people around me?’”
Eric’s third key to success is inspired by John Maxwell’s quote: to add value to others, one must first value others.
If you want to keep people around you and see how they value you, always remember to value every little thing.
