Wise words in times of confusion enable me to stay grounded like the anchor on a ship. Instead of being swayed by every wind that comes my way, I seek the advice of educated, experienced people who genuinely care about me and my business.
Seeking wisdom keeps me from wandering in the vast ocean of opportunities. I listen to my trusted advisers and consider their advice very strongly. I use their ideas as a springboard for forming my own conclusions. Heeding the words of the wise prevent me from unnecessary pitfalls. Life is too short to learn every lesson from personal experiences. I save myself time and heartache when I learn from the experiences of others.
My circle of advisers comprises an eclectic, well respected group of individuals from a multi-million dollar business strategist to a fellow small business owner who is building an impressive empire.
When I am deeply involved in a situation and my emotions are high, it can be challenging to think objectively. That is why I ask for wise counsel from those around me that are equipped to provide me with sound advice.
As you seek to chart your course in life, I implore you to seek out not just an adequate but a fantastic advisory team. Surround yourself with people who you not only trust but are also equipped with the knowledge to steer you in the right direction.
