Doing A Business Is About The People And Not The Numbers Mainly

When you start a new business, you often care more about the numbers than the people behind those numbers. A business is more about the people it serves (the consumers and the team behind the business) than the numbers which may or may not be an accurate representation of your business health. When selling something or even hiring the right person to help you with your mission, try to find out what motivates them. Is it your product, the value you offer or the purpose behind your company.

However, in real life and especially during a business negotiation, if someone shows the same attributes and you get uneasy, you should trust your gut. Normally, there will be a ton of money involved and you may be taking too much risk by not trusting your gut and going ahead with the deal. It’s okay to take a break, think more about it and then make a decision.

But when life happens, we often forget about ourselves and instead bury ourselves beneath the responsibilities of business, new deals, competitors, relatives and everything else but not ourselves. It pays off to carve some time for yourself. What do you like doing in your leisure time? Think about the hobbies and then add leisure slots into your day-to-day agenda so you can spend time with yourself happily without being interrupted.
