Advice For Your 2020 Goals

2020-02-12T19:02:27+00:00

Here's some advice from me to you for 2020. Write down all your mistakes from 2019 and call them lessons. Make sure you go over each one and do what you need to do to master them going forward. Our failures are what shape us in life. The greatest entrepreneurs and athletes of all time failed a million times before they succeeded. Think of how many free throws or passes the greatest athletes missed before they hit the ones that really counted. The more reps you accrue in mistakes, the better chance you have in success. Know that you can lose [...]

What Makes A Company Great?

2020-02-12T18:57:58+00:00

I believe what makes a company truly great is profitability. In my opinion, many companies these days are focusing too much on having a friendly culture, appealing to sponsors and essentially the "politics" behind the business and venture capitalism. Many companies have lost sight of the ultimate goal of being profitable, first and foremost, and that means hitting those large sales numbers. This is the key differentiating factor that my businesses bring to the market. Many potentially good companies are focused on culture, customer service, fancy marketing ads and so on and are misallocating their overhead to resources that deter from [...]

The Importance of Asking Questions Before Closing a Sale

2020-02-12T18:51:36+00:00

It's not all about pitching your product or service from the very beginning. The best salespeople in the world don't sell, per se. They ask questions and listen to what people want. In my time as a business owner, I've heard a common misconception time and time again: that salespeople have the vocabulary, the looks and the hunger for money alone. I've been in business for myself my entire life, which has made me be a great salesman whether I wanted to be or not. In business, everything starts with sales. Throughout my entrepreneurial journey, I learned to focus and become better [...]

Learn From Your Favorite Sports Teams And Apply It To Business

2020-02-12T18:48:42+00:00

Teamwork is defined as “the combined action of a group of people, especially when effective and efficient.”  Looking to sports for inspiration, you’ll notice that this is a common theme amongst all the best teams and athletes. Whether it’s soccer, baseball or even auto racing, they all rely on teamwork to advance further. The main objective is to win. But without a strong team behind each individual player, they wouldn’t be able to succeed. NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt wouldn’t be able to compete without a crew behind him. Pit crews range from two to twenty people all working together to help [...]

The importance of a morning routine

2019-11-29T20:37:15+00:00

Should you have a morning routine or should you carpe diem?   Entrepreneurs, business people, and executives, please read below. Everyone else, carpe diem on some adventure websites.   Well, let's start with the fact that I think is crucial to have a morning routine. The first 5-10 min will dictate your day, and the morning structure will map out your day.   What works for me? Every morning I wake up at 5 am. This is for the most part naturally. Rarely I need an alarm. I guess that on top of the fact that I don't sleep much, my [...]

From a professional athlete to a businessman

2019-02-03T01:14:54+00:00

I started playing team-handball when I was 11 years old. I played for Steaua, Bucharest. A lot of people here in the US have no idea about this sport. It's easily confused with the American handball (hitting the ball against the wall with your hands).Team Handball is quite complex. To get a glimpse of it, here is a youtube video showcasing the best goals: https://youtu.be/54C1l4njZME Anyhow, the point is that I've always been very interested in business, negotiation, new projects, etc and most importantly, winning. I remember my real profitable business was at only 6 years old. You see, my parents [...]

Why I bought a Ferrari at 34?

2019-01-21T05:36:11+00:00

I really think that the world as we know it and especially the car industry will change very much and very fast due to technology. Is it cool to own a Ferrari at only 34? Yeah, of course, it is. Is it necessary for a very busy and active entrepreneur?... not really. But in life, I figured that I really don't want to have regrets. And I am not saying that this would have been a regret to really make me feel sorry for myself, but it would have definitely made me fail my materialistic goals. My 458 Spider and Rolls [...]

Why Delegation Doesn’t Work In Small Businesses (And What Leaders Should Do Instead)

2019-02-03T01:03:29+00:00

Nearly every book about business and every business guru will advise a small business founder or CEO to learn the art of delegation. I was one of the ones who believed that if I didn't delegate, I would never be able to grow my businesses or personal net worth. Surprisingly, I was let down most of the time by the agents I delegated to. And as usual, I blamed myself and tried to find better ways to delegate. In the meantime, I was completing the tasks myself, and slowly realized that I was wasting my time and my employees' time by [...]
