Tip №1. Don’t take advice as a guide to action
This is perhaps the most important piece of advice. What can be used for a startup is not always suitable for another. Therefore, think twice before using life hacks from successful businessmen in your audience – this may not work.
Tip №2. Hire “your own people”
Of course, this is not about your sister or classmate, but rather about those who hold similar views and have the same ambitions. To follow the path of business development, you need to gather around the table like-minded people who can be trusted.
Tip №3. Follow the rules
Your cooperation with key employees should be based not only on words and trust, but also on clear principles. This will save you from unexpected financial costs that can slow down the growth of your business for several years.
Tip №4. Invest in your startup
Business growth is directly related to the professional growth of your employees. So while the other star pays dividends to shareholders, it invests in the development of its business and its employees.
Rustam Gilfanov and his partner founded the company in 2006. Today, this company is the largest developer of software for the gaming industry, marketing and Finance.
Tip №5. The creation of additional products
Brainstorming for your team and determining the direction of development of additional products or services is a bonus in your main offer. Diversity, if it takes into account the needs of the target audience, still contributes to business growth.
The growth of the company is one of the main goals for any novice businessman. Remember that giants like Google or Microsoft are yesterday’s star. Nothing is impossible if you believe in your idea and work in a team with “your own people”!
