More From Michael Cooper
Build your business around your talent and watch things flourish.
Selling a Business
Here's a piece of advice: Start preparing to sell today, rather than years from now.
Business owners tend to struggle with time management. While innate creative talent cannot be taught, time management can.
Numbers are vitally important to knowing how well you're doing, but only if they're pertinent to your goals.
Don't be dismissive of the ideas and connections your brain makes. They hold a lot of value.
If you fall into nearly half of the population who often finds themselves on a path to burnout or stress, it's time to make a change.
With the right messages, you can speak to people in a way that ultimately boosts sales.
Prepare to Succeed
Fundamental critical thinking is essential in business, and life, but is seldom seen on a college curriculum. Happily, it's something you can figure out.
Knowing the way your audience processes information can greatly help you structure your most important points.
Understanding how your workers think and approach tasks will help you effectively adjust your management to deliver optimal results.
Are you a controller, innovator, nurturer, or 'systemizer?' Determining your brain type can help you recognize and address the blind spots holding you back from your true potential.
