There is a big difference between how the haves and the have nots think and talk about money, access and resources. Those differences show up in your business, too, and we should talk about it.
Why is that important for business?
Just as rich people teach their kids different things about money than poor and middle-class parents, so to do these differences show up in businesses, especially in management teams and start-ups. There is a difference between approach and culture, and mindset about accessing resources and advice. It is practically the birthplace of “you don’t know what you don’t know”. Certain options never even occur to people who aren’t used to thinking of those options. When you don’t even know what is possible, it’s hard to know what questions to ask.
People who are accustomed to financial and business success have more access to resources, yes, but the bigger piece might be the mindset piece.
It can be seductive to want to feel like the smartest person in the room, but if you are, you are in the wrong room. The constant drive to not be the smartest person in the room is not only great for your own personal development, but also a great leadership skill to develop. You need to surround yourself with people who make you better.
