Martino shared his no.1 business tip with us and here it is
“Don’t allow room for deadwood in your business”
Martino told us ‘Its a very simple rule but people make the one mistakes which hangs them out to dry, Deadwood is something or someone who doesn’t push the business forward and who will always be more of a hindrance than a helping hand, You should never have such people around and you as the boss shouldn’t have deadwood in your blood, always aim high and go for the very top’
The 21year old entrepreneur has a valid tip for business people there, its important to equip yourself with the right team who are as motivated as you are about the business and to also have the right resources. Sometimes as the business owner or founder you could find yourself settling for less than the best and that’s ‘allowing room for deadwood’
