Our Favorite Online Resources of the Week

Leaders often have the bad habit of thinking they have to do everything themselves. This is especially true when it comes to taking risks. But people rarely need to know how your business works in order to offer business help.

This week we bring sage advice from Richard Branson, Marc Ecko, and Wesley Hein to show leaders that cooperation can sometimes go a lot further than competition.

1. How risk-taking can help build your business

Risk-taking isn’t just a habit of leaders. If a company wants to be innovative, risk-taking must be embedded in the culture. People must be able to think freely, which often means thinking outside the norm.

2. There’s No Straight Line to Success

Having a plan is important, and so is mapping out the route to get there. But unless you account for unforeseen obstacles, inevitable setbacks will seem overwhelming.

3. Richard Branson on The Art of Asking For Advice

Richard Branson discusses why not having all the answers is perfectly normal. There will always be people with more experience. Look to them for inspiration and help, not as a realization of your failures.

4. Wesley Hein Redefines Passion

Master Channel CEO Wesley Hein tells TEND why passion doesn’t always mean what you think it means.
