Josh recently appeared in the Knowledge for Men podcast where he gave advice and tips on how to be successful. He said that his favorite quote was from Jonathan Swift which describes vision as being the art of seeing what is invisible to others.
His first piece of advice is that one should try hard not to become a boss but a leader. The boss pushes people around, is self-centered, and demands respect from his employees. A leader earns respect from his employees and motivates everyone to work together. He advises leaders to put others first. This is what ultimately leads to a great team. He recommends that leaders push for a win-win environment for everyone in every situation. The outcome should be a win-win for clients, employees, and everyone in general. This means that the leader will learn to think outside the box and make the best decisions every time.
Josh Verne advises that people should find what they are passionate about for them to be successful. This means that they are productive and that they are happy to go to work every day. He advises that people should listen more and that they should try to find work-life balance. He finishes by sharing his favorite books known as “Made in America” by Sam Walton and Rocky.
