Each week we ask some leading questions to an entrepreneur or business owner.
Here’s some of our favourite replies to … If you could gain one quality or ability that would significantly increase your business success, what would it be?
“The ability to network with “big boys” (high quality network).
With the right network, I will have access to resources my competitors wouldn’t. I would have distribution channels into places where it’s hard to penetrate. I would gain the competitive advantage in terms of sales which would translate into business growth.”
Zac Chua, Founder and CEO of The Kettle Gourmet
“Hands down, being more comfortable with sales. While I am fervently passionate about what I do and know my WHY, I sometimes still get uncomfortable with sales conversations. Working through these blocks is important in not only making sure I have a sustainable runway ahead, but most importantly to bring my message to others to help them in transforming their lives for the better. It is a disservice if I don’t do everything in my power to bring my work to others so they can be empowered to make lasting change and find sustainable success.”
Sarah Kalmeta, Mindset Coach of Pivot Point, Co-Founder of Aveita Limited
“If I were to choose a superpower, I would love to have the ability to be present in different places at the same time physically. I know that this is not possible, and having this ability would be a great asset to have for our business growth.
This is why even though I may not be able to gain this superpower, I think of the importance of showcasing my commitment to the other side and always make an effort to be fully present when I meet someone.
I work on having the right levels of energy, emotion, attention, and care. And when people can see and feel that you are giving them your entire presence, they can see the uniqueness of your relationship and feel more comfortable collaborating with you.
Being fully present will equal stronger and better business relationships that will help your business grow!”
Yamilette Cano. Founder of LOUDER Global
“The ability I would love to gain (and I am working on) is timing! Being a Fire personality and not an Earth one I have always been people and relationship centered. Life of the party, lots of friends and acquaintances, love to be upfront, but nowhere in this list do you see timing mentioned. And that my readers is one ability I am working to gain since our business has many timing related components, being in the crypto and forex space, so getting better at timing means I might actually be one who can trade my own account!”
Daniel Schwartz, Chairman and CEO of 3T International Limited
