Raising capital is perhaps the most difficult challenge any entrepreneur faces in starting a business. And for many, it’s unavoidable. Some resort to family and friends for quick cash. Others get it through loans, leases and investors.
Sometimes, inspiration comes from unlikely places.
Leadership is not prescriptive and what works for one person may not work for another. There is one trait, however, that many successful business leaders and entrepreneurs share: They are constantly asking themselves questions to stay relevant and perceptive.
Since the earliest days of the Internet, entrepreneurs have recognized the potential to export their goods and services worldwide, or to “go global” per se.
Oprah, Donald Trump and Jane Smith all have successful personal brands. Oprah is the empathetic advocate for entrepreneurism, women, overcoming challenge and education, epitomized in her “Live your best life” motto. Donald Trump is the often-disliked titan of real estate who has built a brand of luxury, ruthlessness and savvy business strategy.
