So what are the EIGHT ways to Create Value?

Examples: Oprah Winfrey (Presenter), Paul Newman (Actor), Bill Clinton (ex President)
Examples: Steve Ballmer (Microsoft), Jack Welch (General Electric)
Examples: Donald Trump (Property tycoon), Rupert Murdoch (News International)
Examples: George Soros (Business magnate)
Examples: Warren Buffet (Investor), Paul Allen (Microsoft)
Examples: Lakshmi Mital (Steel tycoon), Ingavar Kamprad (IKEA)
Examples: Michael Dell (DELL), Ray Kroc (McDonalds)

What do Successful Entrepreneurs do?
Successful entrepreneurs focus only what they are good at. They understand which of these 8 areas they are ‘wired’ for and where they have a natural strength. By doing what is natural to them things are easier, work is more enjoyable, and great results follow too.
Crucially, they identify and work with others who are naturally good at different and complementary areas. By helping others to succeed it’s a genuine win:win.
By design or by accident, leaders of successful companies will have identified opportunities where they can create value. They do things that other businesses find difficult or expensive to do.

On the other hand, a couple of hours spent updating your LinkedIn Personal Profile will […]
