7 Lessons that every entrepreneur should learn from Steve Jobs
Entrepreneurship isn’t a mere fashion statement; it’s a way of life. However, most people don’t have the perseverance or fire in the belly it demands, and usually give up. The primary goal of entrepreneurship is to create growth and wealth by offering high value-added activities to the present economy. This is possible when new and innovative ideas are implemented and jobs are created. As an entrepreneur, you are responsible for every minute thing. You need to take an idea to a service or product level, and keep working on it every day to achieve the right product-market fit, scale it, and then make it more attractive for others to invest into it. It’s an uphill journey and one emerges a different person. No book can teach us about this transformation; only learning on the ground can.
Inspiration abounds in the startup ecosystem but nowhere does it shine as bright as in the case of the legendary Steve Jobs.
Steve Jobs wasn’t an engineer or a designer. But, he was one of the greatest users of technology of all time, and that made all the difference. The reason Jobs became a legend was due to his special vision; he wanted to change the world – and he sure did! He looked at products from the customer’s point of view – how and why would they use it? The visionary always focused on the benefits Apple products could provide, and how simple and easy they were to use. He ended up offering products that were not even needed, but eventually became a necessity for millions. Steve Jobs opened the flood gates for generations to come. I have been following him since from my first failed startup days to my exploratory trips and while designing and innovating products. I made mistakes, I repeated them, and I failed. I thought of giving up, but in those testing times Steve Jobs’ life-changing ideologies kept me going. Here are few a lessons from Steve Jobs that budding entrepreneurs can take tips from in their entrepreneurial journey.
1. Travel the world and do new things
Travel opens new windows and avenues. We often see a 30-year-old staying with parents, and traveling for the first time on honeymoon. One must travel before teenage ends. Those mistakes, meeting strangers, and keeping an open mind in a new country teaches us about people, culture, and history. That whole experience develops a different streak in our cerebrum. Steve himself travelled to India and stayed quietly in an ashram. It’s important to remember his lesson that when we understand people, we start understanding consumerism automatically.
2. Learn like a child
Learning is a way of life and never leaves us. Our brain is reshaping with every single thought we have. Children are driven forward by their unbridled curiosity. Just imagine how differently children approach the learning process. To them, it’s just a part of the discovery mode they use to face the world that surrounds them. Keep exploring to keep your brain young and live an exceptional life full of extraordinary lessons. If you are not learning, you’re shrinking.
3. Don’t take no for an answer
Steve Jobs was famous for being extremely bold and clear on what he wanted. He didn’t shy away from repeating the same question over and over until he got a solution or an answer. People used to avoid direct confrontations with him because they knew that he was so logical and convincing that they would be forced to agree on terms they might not even like.
4. Take a calculated risk
Every idea is a good idea unless it’s implemented. There is a lot at stake when innovation happens – people, investment, time, energy, effort, market dynamics, competition, viability etc. All this is risk and there is no surety if that one golden idea will work or not. But, if we don’t take that risk, we won’t be sure if we are moving in right direction or not. Always take calculated risks on practical grounds.
5. Never care about reality
Steve didn’t care much about reality. He forced engineers working with him to create products that were impossible to produce before Apple got there. Whether it was the slim Macbook or highly sophisticated iPhone, his vision and denial of reality inspired them. Sign up for Newsletters Check out our popular newsletters and subscribe
6. Innovate constantly
Any mention of Steve Jobs brings up innovation. People are often scared that discussing their thoughts will lead to people stealing their ideas. The key to avoid this problem is innovation. People may copy you, but they won’t be able to innovate at your speed if you continue to do that that. And, it’s a validation that you are doing something right if someone is copying you.
7. It is never too early to get started
We have had stories where people started at 60+. There is nothing called the right time; it’s about hitting the right chord. Starting small helps, so start with what you have and where you are. Invest in your idea and product with all your conviction. It all drills down to the first step. If you have an idea, action it.

Beginners often have subjective and unconscious statements about the products and services they intend to do business. Your friend may be more profitable than other low-end retailers and dealers but surely he can eat large-scale manufacturers.
6. Selecting a inappropriate companion

7. Operating without a process

5 Things You Can Do Right Now to Prepare for the Post-Coronavirus Business World
Is your business ready for the five largest macro-trends we are about to see?
Social distancing. Telemedicine. Self-quarantine. These are all words that at the start of 2020 weren’t part of our vocabulary, but several months into the new decade we are all hearing and using them daily. There is no denying that the coronavirus outbreak has dramatically changed just about every facet of just about every person’s life around the world. From a business perspective, the stock market saw its largest one day loss and largest one day gain in history. The U.S. saw the largest job-loss report ever. We are in uncharted waters, and how long we will remain in them remains uncertain. However, there is one thing that we all know, and that is that this outbreak will change the lives of everyone for years or decades to come. Nearly 20 years after 9/11, enhanced airport security, no-fly lists and counterterrorism efforts are still the norm. The same will be true of the COVID-19 aftermath. Is your business ready for the five largest macro trends we are about to see?
1. The rise of enhanced websites and digital tools
Many nonessential businesses — including things like retail stores, hair salons, warehouses, factories and offices — had their brick-and-mortar locations offices closed and did not have the technical tools to survive with their physical locations shut down. Our agency has seen a tremendous increase in businesses reaching out to us ready to make the leap into digital. It’s critical for businesses to be able to not just survive but thrive through enhanced websites and digital tools to serve their customers. Things like e-commerce in industries that never utilized e-commerce before, advanced product configurations, chatbots and mobile applications are in greater demand than ever as small- and medium-size businesses join in the new decade’s technology revolution. These new tools are helping businesses stay afloat during the virus outbreak and will be a macro-trend that becomes even more important as social distancing becomes commonplace practice — not just for this outbreak but for potential future outbreaks as well.
2. Cybersecurity concerns take center stage
Cybersecurity is already an important topic to large businesses, and with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, California’s Consumer Privacy Act and other privacy laws, as well as countless news stories about the cost and impact of data breaches, it is something smaller businesses are being forced to confront head on. With the surge in employees working remotely during the virus outbreak, we have seen more and more data breaches and cyberattacks. Employees using unsecured infrastructure and third-party tools are two of the leading causes of potential breaches. Combine this with data storage and access practices that violate privacy laws — for example, telemedicine on non-HIPAA-compliant platforms — and suddenly the need for secure solutions takes center stage. Additionally, during this vulnerable time, we have seen an increase in overseas cyberattacks on many of our clients’ websites. Things like brute force attacks, denial of service attacks and other types of attempted hacks have increased, and the need for keeping website and web servers updated and secure is of utmost importance. More businesses will be forced to invest in technology that is secure, scalable, accessibly remotely and follows the onslaught of new data privacy and security regulations.
3. An increase in virtual meetings
The tremendous increase in virtual meetings is a trend we predict will be here to stay. Though there is no substitute for a face-to-face meeting and handshake, for the next few years we anticipate the trend of virtual meetings to continue. And this won’t just apply to the traditional business world, it will apply to many other aspects of our lives — for example, virtually meeting with your doctor, therapist, banker and even hair stylist for a consultation. This will be a tremendous cost and time savings to all parties involved. This is a trend that already started prior to the virus outbreak and will only become more amplified as we continue in this new decade. Preparing for this trend goes far beyond having a virtual meeting space and software. Things like digital brochures, digital business cards, tutorial videos and enhanced website information will all follow in this trend and become necessities as businesses find it more difficult to physically hand materials to their customers.
4. Increased control in expenses
With the unprecedented business shutdown across America, businesses will be increasingly looking at ways to have a greater degree of control over their expenses. These will include businesses requesting shorter contract durations, emergency clauses and provisions in agreements, ways to have a more easily scalable workforce utilizing temporary workers and temporary agencies, and an overall desire to lower expenses, especially recurring expenses. We have witnessed firsthand nearly every client of ours express the need to reduce expenses, not just as a result of the virus but also as a practice they want to continue into the near future. While this is a good business practice regardless, the pain felt during this economic downturn will create scars that will likely last years into the future. Make sure your business has answers when your customers ask for ways they can be saving, reducing contract terms or protecting their business from future disasters and catastrophes.
5. Even more remote employees
Lastly, with the previous four trends is going to come the fifth — an even larger shift to remote employees. Many businesses that fought the trend of employees working remote are now realizing that in being forced to shut down their offices, remote employees are still efficient, effective, economical, and something millennials and Generation Z demand. With more remote employees comes the increased need for all of the first four points mentioned. This trend is something that started over a decade ago, but it will continue to be amplified in this new decade and following the COVID-19 outbreak. These trends will be relevant not just in 2020, but likely well beyond. Making decisions and positioning your company now for these changes in the business world will make sure your business is ready and at the forefront of the new remote, digital technology revolution.
SEO is an essential part of any digital marketing strategy. Done correctly, it requires extensive knowledge of SEO best practices and experience putting those practices into action.
You may be more comfortable working with an agency whose focus is on the financial services industry and in particular financial advisors and RIAs.
It’s essential to know when to expect the initial work to be done and when to expect the first round of reporting, etc.
If you’re looking to hire an SEO agency for your financial advisory firm, you’ve no doubt come to the conclusion that SEO is an essential part of any digital marketing strategy. You’ve probably also realized that to be done correctly, it requires someone with extensive knowledge of SEO best practices and experience putting those practices into action.
It can be hard to find the right SEO agency, so here are 5 steps you can take to find the ideal SEO agency – some you can get started on right away!
1) Create a list of candidates
This is, of course, the first place to start, but also can be the most challenging. This is because some of the ways you might search for an SEO agency involve – you guessed it – SEO. And if an agency is good at what they do, they could appear in the top rankings but not necessarily be a good fit for your business.
Also, some SEO agencies appear on lists created by blogs and other resources that appear to be created for the benefit of the end-user. However, whether through the use of the above-mentioned SEO practices or possibly even through paying for a spot on that list, some agencies don’t actually belong in those rankings.
Instead of relying solely on internet searches, look around for reviews and testimonials. And don’t rule out a review simply because it’s on their own website. As long as the review has a name and company attached to it, you can ask that agency for contact information to follow up with the firm as a reference once you get further down the selection process.
Be leery of paid reviews. While not always obvious, some key giveaways are when a handful of reviews using first names only use similar wording and/or are posted all around the same time. If it sounds suspicious, take it with a grain of salt. Once you have your list, you can begin to narrow down your options.
2) Check their industry experience
When hiring an SEO agency, the experience is a key indicator of how much they know about your industry. You may be more comfortable working with an agency whose focus is on the financial services industry and in particular financial advisors and RIAs.
Do a thorough review of the different industries a firm works with or has worked with in the past. Depending on your comfort level, you may choose to go with an agency that only works with clients inside your industry.
Keep in mind that when it comes to heavily regulated industries such as finance and investments, the more industry experience an agency has, the better chance they understand the nuances of the compliance aspect of your firm.
3) Beware of big promises
Some SEO agencies might try to impress you with a laundry list of all of the services they can provide your firm. However, keep in mind that you may not necessarily need all of those things right away or at all.
Imagine you’re purchasing a vehicle. You may go in with an idea of your must-have features and things you don’t need to have. But then you get to the car dealership and all of a sudden, you’re test-driving the fully loaded edition and are having a hard time talking yourself back into the practical option you came to purchase.
The same can happen when “test-driving” SEO agencies. You may come into the meeting with an idea of your budget and SEO needs, but when the agency brings out the big promises, you may be tempted to go with a more extensive plan and find room in your budget for it.
If you do some of your own research prior to meeting with an agency, you will have a better understanding of your firm’s needs and won’t be upsold into services you don’t need.
4) Get to know the entire team – not just the CEO or sales
Depending on the size of the SEO agencies you’re considering, you may be first introduced to the agency through the sales team or perhaps even the CEO.
This sales tactic is meant to impress you and show your importance and value as a potential client. But beware of the bait and switch. Remember that once you become a client, you won’t necessarily be working directly with the sales team or the CEO.
That’s why it’s important to meet the members of the team that will be working on your account on a day-to-day basis. Ask who will be your main contact, as well as any other team members. And because so many agencies outsource work to independent contractors, you’ll want to ask any prospective agencies if they outsource and if it’s domestic-only or sometimes can be out of the country.
This may not be a deal-breaker for you in the decision making, but it will help you to know more about who will be working on your account. If an agency does outsource at times, it may mean a revolving door of people working on your account with no real stability.
5) Ask about timelines and reporting
This is an important question to ask before entering into any agreement with an SEO agency. This step ensures that all parties are on the same page when it comes to expectations and timelines for deliverables.
It’s essential to know when to expect the initial work to be done and when to expect the first round of reporting, etc. This should also include a checklist of all the items the agency needs from you to get started.
Do you want to nurture your leads and drive them through your sales funnel? We have five tips that will help you improve engagement and build rapport through email, social media and your website.
Inbound marketing has become one of the most popular ways to turn prospects into customers. Due to this shift in perspective, many business owners are marketers are looking for ways to help potential customers navigate through their sales funnel.
Lead nurturing is the process of engaging with your visitors by offering them support, information, and content that provides the solution to a problem, or advice to ease pain points. There are plenty of ways you can keep in touch with both the people who’ve casually spotted one of your ads on social media and long-time fans.
Let’s look at several things you need to keep in mind when you are trying to build rapport with your audience. In addition to lead nurturing tips, we are going to look at several strategies you can implement that will help you increase your conversions and website traffic.
Focus on awareness
First, let’s talk about spreading brand awareness. It’s hard to nurture your leads if people don’t know that you exist. There are plenty of smart ways you can get the word of your business out to potential customers without paying for ads.
Social media is a great starting point when you want to inform consumers of your product. The average user spends 2 hours and 22 minutes across their social profiles every day. In other words, they are receptive to your promotions and open to engagement. Additionally, 50% of users on Facebook say the platform influenced their buying decisions. Past visitors may see retargeting ads, but how do you get the attention of people who have never heard of your brand?
You can attract leads by holding an online giveaway for your followers. Encourage new people to follow your brand and share your post for even more exposure. Make sure you offer something relevant to your industry, as opposed to an Amazon gift card. Specialized prizes ensure that your target audience signs up for the event.
Don’t forget to spend plenty of time engaging with your potential customers and followers in social media groups that post relevant content. Use these conversations to introduce yourself and build connections with consumers.
Leverage relevant content
The best way to nurture your customers is through your content. Blog content is beneficial and versatile, making it a go-to choice for many marketers. There are ways you can improve your website design for a customer-friendly experience. It’s always a good idea to add a search function to your blog so consumers with specific interests or questions can find relevant content.
As an added bonus, you can use customer searches to feature other related content and lead magnets. Taking this small step can result in more people subscribing to your email list and staying on your site for a longer time. If people can find what they are looking for, you’ll have a much easier time helping them navigate through your sales funnel.
Once you start generating more email subscribers, you can segment your list and send relevant content to users based on their customer persona. Research shows that segmenting the content you send in emails can improve your open rate by a whopping 14.31%.
For example, if you have a shop that sells different kinds of clothing, you can create curated lists of content about those specific types of content based on user purchase history. The result is subscribers will see more content that fits their interests, and as a result, they are more likely to click your email and navigate to your website.
Merge chatbots with live support
Customer support is essential for lead nurturing. People are going to land on your site with questions, and they expect a team to be there for help. You can meet and exceed their expectations by adding chatbots to your existing live support strategy.
Human employees are great at helping customers with complicated issues that require troubleshooting or corrections. Chatbots can help people that fundamental problems, such as a password change, while actively engaging with new consumers that land on your website.
You can take it a step further and use your new chatbot to ask customers questions to personalize their experience. There are plenty of new possibilities with AI, and chatbots seem to be the most significant evolution for business owners.
The best part about AI-powered chat programs is they are available to nurture your leads day or night. They don’t need time off, and you save your live support team for more complicated and pressing issues.
Earlier, we mentioned the benefits of personalized content, but this tip specifically refers to personalizing individual details about your customers. In most cases, you’ll find this tip useful for your email marketing campaign.
There are plenty of exciting ways you can send individualized messages to your email subscribers. You’ll want to use details like their name, birthday, and location in your messages. Using an aspect like a recipient’s first name can improve your open rate by 26%!
You could also send out a special deal or content package for users on their birthday. If you’re willing to pay attention to seemingly small details like this, consumers will have a much easier time trusting your brand and asking questions as they get closer to becoming a customer.
Finally, it’s crucial that you follow up with website visitors, email subscribers, and followers on social media. All of these people have the potential to become customers, or have already bought something from your online store.
If you have leads that fall into the former category, following up can help you close the deal. Let’s say someone signs up for your email list because they wanted a 20% coupon. They get their discount but forget to place their order.
Your email reminder with an extra 10% off could be just the thing they need to get them in gear and ready to buy something from your website.
Retargeting ads are also helpful in this situation. Essentially, these ads, also called retargeting pixels, occur when someone lands on your website but doesn’t complete their order. They may begin to see banners that you created on their social media profile. The result is more people will remember their interactions and come back to your site.
Additionally, you’ll see that people will follow you on social media, send you a message, and never engage with your brand again. If you can, respond to their message and get an exciting, professional conversation going. Some people are looking for businesses that are willing to go out of their way to please their customers.
As you can see, there’s a lot of planning that goes into lead nurturing. You have to spend time getting to know your target audience, and then work to actively help each segment across email, social media, and on your website.
Sending relevant information is helpful, but it’s only one piece of the lead nurturing puzzle. It pays to go out of your way to make sure that everyone that interacts with your brand leaves with their questions answered. Users on social media should expect the same attention to care that they will find when they talk to your on-site support.
The more time you spend working with consumers, the easier time you’ll have planning strategies that are designed to nurture leads and turn them into customers.
