Posted by Mosaic Global Transportation on Jan 31, 2022 3:55:26 PM
After 20 years of running a business, you're bound to have learned a few lessons - often the hard way! In honor of our 20th anniversary of Mosaic Global Transportation, our Founder & Chief Executive Officer, Maurice Brewster, and our President, Rhonda Brewster, took some time to reflect on what they've learned over the years. Spanning from mistakes that they made early on to recent realizations about how to grow a successful business, here are twenty things that any entrepreneur should know.

  1. Going with your gut without thought could be a recipe for disaster.
  2. Secure money before you need the money.
  3. Surround yourself with smart people, committed to your core values.
  4. Hire slow, fire fast.
  5. Invest in a business coach.
  6. Set a plan for success every year.
  7. Continually educate yourself.
  8. Never make important decisions when angry.
  9. All business isn’t good business.
  10. The client isn’t always right, but is always our client.
  11. It’s OK to fire a client.
  12. Be cautious about announcing things too early to the client(s).
  13. Over-communicate with your most important assets, your employees.
  14. Always be on the lookout for new talent, even if you don’t need them.
  15. The culture of your business is paramount.
  16. Nurture employees all the time.
  17. Constructive feedback is like oxygen.
  18. Know your financial numbers inside and out.
  19. Business credit is essential for growth.
  20. Enjoy the journey, not the destination.

We are so excited to be celebrating our 20th year of business and are looking forward to 20 more years of lessons learned!
