Climbing to the top of the business ladder is not an easy task. Every successful business person would have their own stories of patience and persistence. Here we bring to you 8 tips from the world’s top self-made billionaires that will change your business.
- Be ready to take risks
“The biggest risk is not taking any risk,” says Mark Zuckerberg, CEO and co-founder of Meta Platform Inc. (Formerly named Facebook Inc.).
Every businessperson regardless of their status must have gone through that one moment of uncertainty, confused as to whether to take that step or not.
Zuckerberg often recalls his decision to launch the ‘Facebook Home’ feature which raised a lot of criticism and concerns about the future of his platform. Now, look how it turned out for him?
- Bring innovative ideas
Innovation is an intimidating idea for most budding businesses. However, it is also one of the key strategies for a successful business. Harvard Business Review once pointed out how tough it is when the market changes but the people within the company don’t.
“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower,” says Steve Jobs, co-founder and former CEO of Apple Inc. It is very important that you think about new ways in your business.

- Make failures your stepping stones
What should you do about the failures in your business? The simple answer is, learn from it.
Bill Gates, co-founder and former CEO of Microsoft, once said that he knows a lot about failures. “Once you embrace unpleasant news not as negative, it should be taken as evidence of a need for change,” he says, “you aren’t defeated by it. You’re learning from it”
- Invest wisely
How you spend your money is undoubtedly a deciding factor in what happens to your business. Investing wisely is a key aspect of reaching your future goals.
Warren Buffet, Chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, advises to never invest in a business that you cannot understand.
- Own your mistakes
This is simply the golden rule of having a successful business venture. Be ready to take responsibility for your mistakes. Evan Siegel, founder and CEO of Snap Inc, says that one of the things he is trying to get better at is apologizing for his mistakes.
In a recent controversy regarding Facebook content, Mark Zuckerberg owned up to their mistakes and it made a huge impact on the way the public viewed him and his platform.
“This has been painful for me,” he agreed, “because I often agree with those criticizing us that we’re making mistakes.”
- Be patient
