Tina Wells, the founder and CEO of Buzz Marketing Group, started her entrepreneurial journey at the age of 16. This is the advice that helped her endure–and grow via INC.com
I’m more likely to be upset by a 30-minute delay in a meeting than a 10 percent reduction to an invoice! I always tell my team we can make more money, but we can never make more time. Repeat this to yourself all day long. Focus on ways to be more efficient, delegate projects to someone who can do it quicker and better, and do not waste time. And please, please, please don’t waste time in meetings that don’t yield results.
I’m a big fan of Action Method and its process for making ideas happen. Always make sure meetings include action steps so it’s easier to pass along info to the right person to yield the right results. Make sure that everyone understands next steps and owns their next step. This saves time that can ultimately be put to use doing something else.
Great advice Tina Wells read more of her story and advice here.
