#1 -Try Everything
This is one of the greatest lessons I have ever learnt in business. The advice is based on years of speaking to experienced business owners. They have proved invaluable in my business journey.
I was with a highly successful business owner who had a class restaurant, a hairdressing salon and beauty centre. A formidable amount of funds had gone into each business venture and it might seem to some that there might be a loss of focus.
The truth is that after a few years, he started struggling. The restaurant haemorrhaged money and eventually slowed down to a complete still. Throughout these difficult times, the owner focused on his other businesses with a big smile on his face. The restaurant eventually stopped trading and incidentally I was there when it shut its doors to customers for the last time.
