Millipic’s Managing Director James Clarke is a young and ambitious entrepreneur who has high hopes for his firm. In a motivational workshop held for his contractors this week, Mr Clarke delved into the subject of progression and growth in business in order to help his contractors understand why they must always strive for growth as budding entrepreneurs.
Mr Clarke is keen to make a big impact in the sales and marketing industry and recently outlined some of the ways he plans to push his company’s growth to the next level.
Set goals – Having accomplished his own goal of being a business owner, Mr Clarke is fully aware of the impact goal setting can have on success. During the session, Mr Clarke encouraged his contractors to set long term and short-term goals for themselves on a regular basis in order to increase their chances of success.
Don’t fear failure – Millipic believes that many entrepreneurs fail to see the value of failure. Mr Clarke said, “The most useful thing an entrepreneur can do to propel their own growth is to learn from their mistakes.” Mr Clarke assured his contractors that it is very rare that entrepreneurs achieve their desired result on the first try, therefore, being open to the prospect of failure will dramatically help when they are looking to take the next steps in their development strategy.
Take risks – Millipic strongly believe in the popular phrase, “nothing ventured, nothing gained”. Mr Clarke believes that in order to become one of the most innovative sales and marketing firms in the UK it is imperative to take well-educated risks.
Seek a mentor – Mr Clarke invests a large proportion of his time to coaching young professionals who are passionate about pursuing a career in the sales and marketing industry. As a result, Millipic has specifically built their business model to offer comprehensive mentoring and business development opportunities.
