In what became one of his final interviews before his death, Crazy John’s founder John Ihan sat with Reuben Buchanan to discuss what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur -how he did it.
Many people accomplish a little bit and decide that they are experts, John’s principle of humility keeps you aware of your weaknesses, and leaves room for constant growth and learning. Humility helps you acknowledge your vulnerability to bias and keeps you open to feedback on your blind spots and habits.
Compassion can be understood as recognition of suffering, with an emotional feeling, and a desire to do something to end that suffering. People always remember those who patiently showed them compassion, in their time of distress. However to effectively practice compassion, it’s important that you start with yourself.
As an entrepreneur you must be able to nurture a culture that embraces change. For that to happen, a clear, coherent strategy outlining your agenda is essential. You will need a clear vision for your company’s future and you should be willing to commit resources and implement the needed policies needed to make change happen. However as mentioned above remember to always show compassion to your stakeholders (customers, employees, suppliers etc.) as your relationship with these people would be greatly impact your success or failure.
If you treat your staff as your equal, they'll roll their sleeves up to get the job done.
Not only will your kindness influence others, but studies show it’ll also make you happier, too. Being a compassionate person and helping others can help solve some of society’s biggest problems. Find a way that you can share your unique talents or time with a local shelter, an elderly home or at children’s school.
Do what you love is career advice that’s easy to give, but hard to follow, because we can’t always accurately predict what kind of job we’ll love until we’re actually doing it or maybe we love doing a lot of things.
Challenge yourself to take a risk each day, do something new or differently, anything that pushes you out of your comfort zone. Risks help to push your mind beyond its comfort zone.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
