You Can Have 100 Mentors But YOU Make The Decision – Diane Eustaquio
Lovely meeting Diane Eustaquio from IdeaSpace Foundation at Geeks On A Beach (GOAB) Conference in the Philippines. Diane gave us an extensive insight on the Philippine startup scene and what we can do to empower Philippine entrepreneurs. She also shared with us what are the 5 important areas an entrepreneur needs to get ahold of in order to get ahead of the game.
1. Know yourself and work with people who compliment your weaknesses
2. Deep industry/vertical know-how
3. Think for yourself – you make the decision
4. Be prudent – how you add value to your circle of contacts
5. Be grateful with people who help you
