In this episode, we were joined by Tristan Wright, the founder of Evolve to Grow, all the way from Australia! What an insightful, inspiring, and invigorating talk we had! Tristan achieved his dreams at a very young age - a 7-figure thriving business, marriage - just to lose it all a couple of years later. But as it is with the entrepreneurial spirits - these hurdles didn't stop him. We talked with Tristan about how to learn from failures in life and use it to your advantage, about the difference between what drives entrepreneurs and how that might affect their businesses, and the role mindset plays in entrepreneurship. Discover how Tristan is helping businesses grow during the pandemic, what he learned from climbing Kilimanjaro, and so much more! So, without further ado, let's dive into it!
*You need to be aware of all the different components within your business and put energy into actually operating it, not doing all the work.
*If you're too afraid to make mistakes, you'll stay stagnant and won't grow - don't be afraid to make mistakes!
*Mindset, especially in small businesses, is the most important, most critical thing. Because if you can't look after what's happening between your ears, you'll always be struggling. Put yourself first!
*Work-life balance, looking after yourself, and having interests outside your business is crucial to succeed and have a fulfilled life.
*Follow the KISS principle - keep it simple! Aim to achieve small steps to build momentum rather than setting a massive, overwhelming goal.
*Start with the end in mind! What impact do you want to leave? What's the simplest, fastest way to get there? Is the task you are doing now helping you to get to that end goal faster?
*It's not always the best person that wins, it's the person that keeps showing up!
