Plenty of us have dreams of setting up our own business, being our own boss, an entrepreneur, and taking the risk that eventually – hopefully - leads to reward.
However being an entrepreneur requires more than a good idea done well. One of New Zealand’s most successful fashion and accessory designer and marketeers, Karen Walker (pictured), says it comes down to you being a leader.
Speaking at the University of Auckland’s Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Karen Walker took time out from selling her products in 200 stores across 42 countries to reveal the secret to her success.
It’s all about you being a leader
Lead with your ideas, lead with your unique point of view, lead with the way you treat people, lead by taking risks, being brave and going for great, not just good enough.
This is great advice from a globally successful entrepreneur who lives the ideas and values she talks.
