Steve Griggs Design – Business Lessons School Won’t Teach You
In a recent article by Business Insider, Steve Griggs is featured with top Entrepreneurs such as Tai Lopez. See their excerpt below!
School doesn’t prepare you to be an entrepreneur. Actual in-the-trenches experience does. These nine super successful businesspeople, and members of The Oracles, share the top skills you need to succeed in the world of entrepreneurship that traditional schooling never taught you.
4. Creativity and people management
Number one, school should teach creativity as much as multiplication tables. Entrepreneurs need to be innovative. Maybe your new company makes $10,000 a month. What will you do when it makes $10 million a month? The process of thinking about this ahead of time will help you prepare correctly.
Number two, school should teach how to manage people. No one was born with that skill, but you need a team to scale your business. You need persuasion skills so awesome that people will work with you. And you need people reading skills to spot those who are not high quality or have big personality flaws that will derail your team.

7. Never, ever give up
The number 1 thing I wish schools taught is to never, ever give up. No matter what. Have so much freaking confidence that there’s no way you can fail; just learn the wisdom to make adjustments and keep your head on straight. I learned that in the school of hard knocks, not the formal education system.
