Who Are You Surrounding Yourself With?

A significant challenge for business owners who have stepped out of the world of corporate support and started their own enterprise is that they become worried and scared to take chances on their own.  In this short video, I speak with Dubai, UAE Referral Institute® franchisee Phil Bedford about success and the importance of the people business owners surround themselves with.

Jim Rohn has said that people are the sum of the five people they are around most and Phil has a related piece of key advice for business owners:

“Surround yourself with highly motivated, passionate people (who) want to help you succeed.”

So, who do you surround yourself with?  After watching this video, are you going to make it a point to seek out individuals who are more successful than you are, even if they initially intimidate you?  Leave a comment to let us know your thoughts about the video and what kind of efforts, if any, you’re going to make to surround yourself with those who will influence you and your business positively.

Thanks for watching!

  1. In my 45 years of business I have seen this situation happen time and time again. In my small business consulting I encourage owners to look at their employees and weed out the weaker links because they will drag their business down.
    Well put together video.

  2. You have to surround yourself with positive thinkers. And never keep employees who are not interested in your business. I was told by successful entrepreneurs to do something for your business every day.

  3. This is what made Henry Ford and Andrew Carnegie so successful. They surrounded themselves with highly motivated, passionate people to help them.
