Despite the controversy surrounding him, Donald Trump is internationally known as a real estate magnate, best selling author, shrewd businessman and “The Apprentice” host. His net worth is $3.2 Billion, according to Forbes.
What many don’t know about Mr. Trump however, is the many challenges he had to face in order to taste success: unfortunate incidents like the loss of his executive team in a helicopter crash, or major bankruptcy.
Ups and downs, the wins and the failures, where nothing but the architectural factors for building the brand he is today – TRUMP.
If you’ve read at least one of his books like “The Art of the Deal” or “How to Get Rich“, you’ll start to realize what kept Donald in business… it’s the passion and sheer determination to compete in the marketplace, close deals, and become better on a daily basis, rather than the profit itself.
Imagine you had the once in a lifetime opportunity to sit down and talk with Mr. Donald Trump for 10 minutes about life, business and branding. Priceless, you’d say, right?
Not many can have this chance though, of course. At least we have the Internet, which is freely available 24/7. So, I went ahead, and immersed myself (for days) into web research mode. I almost went nuts.
What I’ve found in my journey is incredible. Real life lessons we can adjust and fit into our own business (for social media success) just like kids playing Lego. Some connections are evident, others require a shift in perspective – looking at things from new angles has its merits.
Let’s go through some inspiring quotes which I’ve found through my research and the social media lessons we can apply for our business, as a result.
