Josh Verne Soaring On His Passion

Josh Verne is the current CEO of Flocku.com. He is an entrepreneur with over twenty years of starting, developing, and selling companies. His favorite quote is from Johnathan Swift who said that vision is visualizing what others see as invisible.

 

Josh Verne works on the principal of being a leader but not a boss. A boss takes advantage of his position to do things to the best of his interest while a leader respects his people and uses that connection to achieve company goals.

 

So as to succeed in business, any transaction made should be a Win-Win situation. Don’t ever agree to a win-lose circumstance. A Win-Win situation motivates your clients, employees and yourself. There’s always a strategy to build a win for everyone.

 

Josh Verne emphasizes that leaders should speak less and listen more as they’ve one mouth and two ears.

 

Leaders should have a balance in life meaning that one should make time for everything proportionally because if your family suffers in one way but not financially, you’ll also suffer in that way. A balanced life means making progress in all divisions of life.

 

Your success lies within your passion. Most entrepreneurs who do what they love are successful because they wake up with a drive to achieve more. Your interests hold the key to good life.
