Where did the Band of Rebel’s idea come from?

Although The Band of Rebels is a part name, it’s more of an attitude. The team I work with comprises of experienced entrepreneurs in the world of business. With our vast experiences, it’s impossible not to have a bit of rebellious attitude. However, this isn’t towards our clients or the public, but towards how things work. There are numerous obstacles that hinder entrepreneurial activities, and this is the reason why only a few succeed.

Which trend excites you more?

I rarely follow trends because that’s what they are – just trends. Instead, I focus more on fundamentals because they won’t change. If a person approaches you with new fundamentals, you should run in the opposite direction. However, if I were to pick a trend that would excite me, I would choose podcasts. Personally, reading is among the keys to success. Reading is the best way to gather ideas. Podcasts work similar to reading but are easier. Podcasts are also free and you can learn from different experts. But keep in mind that you can’t just listen, in case you discover some great ideas or strategies, take them with you.

Which strategy has helped you to successfully manage and grow your business?

The “Think and Grow Rich” principal is one of the strategies that has helped me. To succeed, you don’t have to be an expert in anything. What you need is to surround yourself with individuals who have the capacity to fill the holes. Make use of other people’s talent and money. Personally, I have made a couple of multi-million businesses using this simple formula. Start by viewing yourself as a music director waving your magic wand to tell others what to do.

Which business idea would you freely give to your readers?

While some readers may know this, your business plans should include giving away money. This is a proven strategy that has been used by some of the wealthiest people in the world including the Carnegie and Rockefellers. Take 10 percent of every dollar and place in a separate account just for giving. The fun part is that you get to choose what to do with the money as long as it benefits another person.
