Josh Verne, a Philadelphia area businessman was a guest on the Knowledge for Men’s podcast. The interview focused on Verne’s career in business. Host of the Knowledge for Men’s podcast, Andrew Ferebee delved into both the successes as well as failures in Josh’s career. Mr. Verne also laid out some great tips for fellow businessman or someone looking to breakthrough in business. You will find some of them below.
One of the best tips laid out by Josh Verne for business people is to start thinking of all decisions as being win-win situations. A win-win situation is where everybody benefits from the deal. This includes you the entrepreneur or sales agent, the customer, and any middlemen such as vendors or suppliers. When you only think of win-win situations you are forced to take the very best avenue in your business. Such thinking will greatly benefit your business says Josh Verne.
Another word of advice from Josh Verne for people involved in any business is to improve your listening skills. He gives the analogy that we have two ears and one mouth. This proves, he continues, that we should listen more than we talk. By listening and talking in what other people are saying, you can learn a lot more and come up with new solutions that you overlooked before. Listening more and speaking less will also make you appear more authoritative when you do speak. Being a good listener also earns you the respect of your colleagues.
