If David McCandless’ map of what every country in the world is best at is anything to go by, the UK excels in producing billionaires. Most of us will admit that we wouldn’t mind a bit of extra cash, not to mention having a few billion to spare. Luckily, we’ve got plenty of resources to help you on your path to success, from career development tutorials with Atomic Training, to a catalogue full of brilliant books.
Knowledge is Power
It’s vital to do your homework: you need to know the ins and outs of whatever industry or profession you want to pursue if you are going to conquer it. Reading books like The $100 Startup will give you insider tips from people who have already made it. They can tell you what’s a good idea as well as the common pitfalls businesses typically make when they’re starting out.
The Readiness is All
Being prepared to jump on your chance of success at all times is crucial. Opportunities don’t just land on people’s laps: if you don’t reach out and grab them, they can pass you by. Read The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People to get an idea of how you can build your confidence and create your own success. If you have a big interview coming up, make sure you are completely prepared with our tutorials so you beat the competition to land that dream job.
The Art of Influence
Understanding how people work and how you can influence others is crucial to building your empire. Robert Cialdini is hailed as an expert in this area, thanks to his six principles of persuasion, which you can read about here. Make sure you brush up with our tutorials on influence, persuasion and negotiation before chasing that big deal.
