Richard Branson Tips for Building a Business

 

1) Building a business is all about bringing talented people together and creating something that's going to make a real difference to other people's lives.

 

2) Define your brand and choose the name of your business wisely. If you don’t define your brand, your competitors will.

 

3) You can't run a business without taking risks. Your decision will not always be the best decision. Everyone makes mistakes, but the best thing you can do in the face of a mistake is own up to it. Honesty isn’t just the best policy, it’s the only policy, notes Branson. When a mistake is made, don’t let it consume you. Uncover the problem and get to work fixing it

 

4) The first impression is everything. So is the second. Don’t forget that perfection is unattainable.

 

5) Build a corporate comfort environment for your employees. They must feel free and express themselves so that they can make good decisions. It takes an engaged, motivated and committed workforce to deliver a first-class product or service and build a successful, sustainable enterprise.
