The new world’s philosophy is all about transformation. We are transforming our minds, bodies and phenomenons and of course the world itself. And we want to believe that all the transformations are for a better cause. How are we changing our mindset? It’s said if it’s a loss, we shall consider it a well timed warning or an unnecessary burden which is out for good, if it’s bad weather, we shall stay at home and enjoy ourselves or beloved ones and so on and so forth.
Tom believes that Entrepreneur success can and should mean more than cash-on-cash returns. Return on invested capital is vitally important for sustained growth, but entrepreneurs and the investors who support their ventures can and should aim higher.
But most entrepreneurs lack an adequate due diligence process when investing their lives in their next venture. An appropriate focus on self reflection and discovery together with opportunity discovery creates enormous benefits for entrepreneurs and the investors that fund their companies.
