And ultimately realising that we could have started IQ talent sooner it bothers me from time to time. Because I did get comfortable, I didn’t listen to the people that told me that the way that I think about recruiting and sourcing was unique. I didn’t understand it at the time so maybe I could have made that transition to being an entrepreneur sooner. But ultimately Yahoo had to make that decision for me.”…[Listen for More]

“just being a very self-aware is supercritical, knowing who you are, what your business is, what type of business it is and all that stuff. It’s great to shoot for the moon but to get there you really have to know what you are amazing at, what you need help with and all that because it puts you in a better spot to succeed. And sometimes I think entrepreneurs and founders want to think that we can do everything and we try to but I think once you take a step back and you become self-aware about what areas that can do better if I had some out here with me that’s when you really start to succeed and grow a business”…[Listen for More]

“evaluate yourself fairly and stop judging yourself. And make sure that that evaluation is externally verifiable. There are so many people out there, entrepreneurs especially who judge themselves harshly, way too harshly and they are so self-critical that they stall themselves out from developing their own brilliance and moving forward and figuring stuff out and they just getting their own way. And there is so much potential in that group of people who have already self-selected to become an entrepreneur because they have something that they want to do with their lives and that is a huge disservice that they do usually to themselves, sometimes to the teams around them but definitely to themselves more times than not. And the ones that don’t tend to move much faster when they evaluate because they look at what’s worked, what doesn’t work and what’s one thing that I can change. And when it has worked they acknowledge that strength”…[Listen for More]

“I think it’s all about being strategic in setting strategic goals. When I first started because I didn’t know what I was doing I would set goals and it would be maybe an income goal or the number of clients I want to connect with or something like that. And those are good goals but figuring out how they align with what I want and what I need my business to look like is so much more important than just setting a really high goal. Let’s say I wanted to make $10 million this year and I set that goal. Okay that’s a great goal but does it align with first of all what I want my lifestyle to look like and secondly does it really align with my business, is that what I need to be a successful business owner” …[Listen for More]

Parham Parastaran is an Iranian-American entrepreneur and author with a passion for discussing mental health issues in the business community. Although he enjoyed success as an entrepreneur, he had a secret: He suffered from severe depression and addiction. A rock-bottom moment led to signing himself up for psychoanalysis, starting a journey that opened up the darkest doors within himself and found him revisiting a childhood of trauma. Over 15 years after that first psychoanalysis session, he chronicles his powerful story in new memoir, Perfect Pain.

“the deeply deeply deeply honest with yourself. Now why you are doing things. And it’s okay if the reason you are doing things is because you are pissed out of anger, but know that… Know that you are struggling and be able to talk about it and get help. If you are not honest with yourself then you are just doing things and being an entrepreneur for all these other wrong reasons and typically speaking in my opinion never reached the success and the potential that you are destined to have if you can’t be honest with yourself and your insecurities and the things that you lack. So being honest with yourself numero uno”…[Listen for More]

“never give up. That’s without a doubt. And work as hard as possible or I would say put in as many hours as possible for that matter especially in those early stages of the organisation. I think there is far too many individuals out there who are comfortable with giving up when something goes wrong especially in those initial stages because there is a lot of risk… learning all aspects of the business is very very important. That of course comes along with the work ethic side of things because you do have to put in the extra effort to learn the areas that aren’t actually under your purview or you are not generally focused on from a day-to-day perspective”…[Listen for More]

You have to put in those insane hours at first, your family is going to hate you for a while but you have to go all in. Don’t expect to do it all. Do communicate to your friends what they can expect from you because you are going to miss parties, you are going to miss birthdays, you are going to miss events but you have to do that.

When in reality we are not alone, there are so many like us who have either gone through challenges or are going through similar challenges.

So maybe register the .com domain, register the LLC, maybe spend 20 minutes doing this on your spare time when you’re not working… just do it… it doesn’t mean all or nothing I guess you could start small and do something every day towards your goal and it is going to happen quicker than you realise”…[Listen for More]

You need to have the mastery but you also need to understand legal implications, you need to understand some accounting, you need to understand some finance… learn human interactions, human traits, understand people, body language, don’t forego that, I think by far this is the most important thing, Is to understand how to relate to certain people even though their style is different to yours. Just be successful with people and I think everything else will fall into place and you need to technically understand the rest.

“doing your own business can completely take over your life, it can take over your weekends, your evenings because when you are starting off especially you are just doing everything. So my advice is to make self-care your absolute number one priority, do not let that fall to the wayside at all. So if you have a practice of maybe some kind of body movement like exercise or yoga, whatever don’t stop doing it. Or if it is meditation do not stop doing that. Or maybe it’s socialising and getting together with friends every once in a while. Make it a priority. Each part of your day and even week needs to be about self-care; take care of your emotional self and your body, your physical self”…[Listen for More]

“My best advice is to make the decision. Whatever it is that you are trying to figure out and you have been just beating yourself up over it or maybe I should try it but you can’t seem to get yourself commit to it, you need to walk through that process of making a decision, a ‘yes’ or ‘no’. It could be ‘no’ right. I do make quick decisions. It is who I am I am very decisive. And I don’t always make the right decisions but when I don’t make the right decision I go an make my wrong decision right. Meaning I go and do whatever I have to do to fix it. But here is the thing because I had made a decision I wasn’t wasting all of that time thinking about it and wondering about it – and why and how. Right.
