In one of Glen’s advice and mentorship, he talks of how to prevent a business from falling, in the verge of a company falling, an entrepreneur should redefine the benefits he/she is offering the customers. Customers being the main course of any business they should be put of priority, ideas, features in the company appeal to the entrepreneur and not the customer. Offering different benefits in customer service will keep the customers maintaining the business.
Glen too speaks of building a talented group around you, a group that’s dispassionate and can be able to correct you in any instance. This group can challenge you upon any wrong decision making. In this doing this group will help you in maintaining the business stable because they will in one instance or another guide you through. This group can defend your views and can also care for you to help you carry on always.
Among his counsels, Glen also adds that getting dis-confirming evidence in the opinions an entrepreneur does make. In this reasoning, an entrepreneur should seek the reasons why what he/she planned is different from what was expected. This evaluation helps an entrepreneur come to his senses on where wrong decisions were made and rectify them before the business hails from the wrong choices. People generally do not take dis-confirming evidence seriously but in this case its vital to help a company thrive.
Glen does encourage for entrepreneurs to believe in themselves, not to surrender but always be smart about it.
