10 counterintuitive pieces of advice from famous entrepreneurs about starting, building and growing a business.

We all love to take advice from people who’ve previously been through the same situations as us or who are further along a similar path to us. For entrepreneurs this is particularly useful, since it’s such a difficult, unknown path to tread sometimes.

Funnily enough, some of the advice I’ve come across through reading interviews and articles from famous entrepreneurs is often counterintuitive to what I would expect them to say. I thought it would be interesting to gather some of this advice into one place, so here are ten of the most counterintuitive pieces of advice I’ve come across from famous entrepreneur

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's curator insight, August 25, 2013 4:36 PM

So what do effective leaders really do? How do they actually spend their time?


Harvard professor John Kotter decided to find out. He shadowed 15 high performing executives, interviewed them, and talked to their subordinates. This took months.


What he got was an accurate look at how effective leaders spend their day, the patterns behind what they do and how they do it.

Online Video Tips for Small Businesses

Online Video Tips for Small Businesses | CoolBizCollective | Scoop.it

If your site lacks video, you're passing up a great opportunity to hook customers... people who view a video online are 64 percent more likely to complete a purchase than other visitors. Legendary online retailer Zappos discovered that items with video outsell those without by 35 percent...Web videos are also a great search engine optimization (SEO) opportunity. Search engines consistently rank pages that contain video higher than plain websites... Now that you're convinced, here's how to enjoy the business-enhancing benefits of online videos:
1. Tell a Good Story: Products and services abound. Good stories are much harder to come by.
2. Be You: The video should really express your company's culture and personality
3. Use Upbeat Music: Upbeat music plays better with consumers while they're researching their options online
4. Don't Recreate the Wheel: If it's your first video, keep it simple.
5. Don't Make Mom Blush: Have fun, but keep it clean.

Social Media Marketer's curator insight, August 28, 2013 6:09 PM

As they recommend, always start off with the development of a social media marketing strategy, which will include: identification of market influencers around the keywords and industries you want to get know or recognized in, where they are located online and where their audience normally find or gravitate around them. This will slow you where your target audience is and how to start your social media marketing campaign

Then as they recommend set-up or revamp the required accounts such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Foursquare, Pinterest, Tumblr, Google+ & any industry group.

taniaATenthuse.me's curator insight, August 27, 2013 8:07 AM

Getting away from the normal routine will recharge your batteries and enable you to deal with your business challenges in a more effective way. You will unplug from your situation, see things from a different perspective and bring new ideas to deal with your problems.
Great advice by Eric Wagner that will help you avoid burnout and give you the chance to rejuvenate and refocus. Go for it :)

Seth Robinson's curator insight, August 27, 2013 12:05 PM

An interesting perspective on how to gain new insight and edge on your business... To step back, and remove yourself from it all so that you can spend time thinking about your business and innovative ways to get ahead.

Ashleigh Dawley's curator insight, August 27, 2013 12:28 PM

While vacation is nice get away from the normal grind of work it can have real benefits to not only your work ethic, but also what your "vision" of work is. I think that the point about how people get stuck working "in" their business that they forget to work "on" their business is really insightful and got me really thinking about myself and our families business.
