I was chuffed to bits when Veronka from Festival of Enterprise @enterpriseexpos contacted me to ask if they could share the write up I did of their recent event held at the NEC in Birmingham. You can find the original article here.
I love the idea of sharing knowledge and helping people, there is always enough abundance in this world to go around and I really don't think there has to be any losers, let's lift each other up!
But this then got me thinking. What is the worst piece of business advice you have ever been given which has slipped you up - or even unintentional bad advice, where someone really had your best interests at heart but equally didn't actually know what was best for you - or it could simply be a self limiting belief you had unwittingly absorbed along the way, that once cleared from you mind helped you super charge your progress. I'd love to know so comment below if you're up for sharing. (Or share on Instagram)
Sometimes it can be as simple as realising you are actually more than qualified, you are not a child anymore and you don't need someone elses permission to do great things.
I remember a particular time when I had just started a new job and the guy training me complimented me on how quickly I was picking up the bespoke computer system software, much faster than anyone else he had ever trained before. This was a revelation as I'd grown up always being referred to as Polly Dolly Daydream or a Dozy Dora!
