Habits That Lead to Success

By RMON Networks | October 30, 2014

Keeping an eye on people who reach success, even if its in other industries can be a great way to find things to change in your approach to business, how you conduct yourself or even how to balance work and play. For example Richard Branson pictured above is the founder of Virgin Group, and is worth 5 Billion dollars. He recently talked about how he always make sure to hear input from the front lines and the customers.

Screw It, Let’s Do It

Richard Branson

Everytime  Richard flys on Virgin Air he will take time with staff to see what could change for the better and also sit and talk with passengers to hear about their experiences. He keeps a notebook and makes sure he listens to all these action items, and then when he gets back to home base he makes sure that he acts upon them. I know we do not all work in such large scale companies, but what to take away from what he talks about in this interview with INC.com is what HE did to get to where he is. Why not take a page from that book for your own?
