In show #51 – How to Get the Most Out of Your Business Advisors – Robert and I tackled one of the most common questions that entrepreneurs have to struggle with every day – and at the most critical times of their business’ growth. That question is: How do you get business advisors that are capable of helping your business thrive and attain its true potential….as opposed to those who just dole out familar advice that they’ve given out to others in the past?
One of the key lessons: you’ve got to use a different set of rules when choosing, evaluating and working with your business advisors. The old rules of engagement – which usually means implicitly trusting those with years upon years of experience – needs to be carefully scrutinized. The reason for this controversial advice is simple and should be intuitive: If your advisor has 25 years or more of experience that means that much of how they see business (i.e. technologies, motivations, solutions, leader and management approaches, business tools, etc.) is rooted in the 1980s. And, business has changed alot since then.
Listen to show #51 – How to Get the Most Out of Your Business Advisors to review how you can get the best of both worlds – that is, well-founded, experience balanced by practical business advice that is relevant for your current and future business needs.
