I am live-blogging the New Brunswick Entrepreneurs’ Summit at Kingswood Lodge, just outside Fredericton, NB. There’s 100 eager, (mostly) young entrepreneurs here, ready to listen to great speakers and share ideas for building stronger businesses.
The founder, Rivers Corbett of Chefs Group, got things rolling at 8.30 sharp. First speaker is Steven Palmer, an insurance executive with the Safety Group in Hartland, NB.
1. Be crystal clear on what the mission is. (“My mission was: to get to 19,310 feet.”)
3. The Seals build a framework of trust and safety in the group
(“The Navy makes clear that they will always get their people back; they’ll do whatever it takes. “That creates a climate for risk-taking.”)
4. Refuse to quit. (“Persistence is the greatest attribute that an entrepreneur has.”)
