Business Brain Food

Jon Yeo deconstructed every aspect of business to become a winner. A self-confessed introvert, he worked tirelessly to improve the way he communicated, and now he actually advises professional speakers! Jon is behind TEDx Melbourne so he really knows what it’s like at the cutting edge of business. He is also past chapter president of Professional Speakers Australia.


See some of Jon’s top tips below:

**  You can’t grow a business without the right mindset.

**  Have the courage to be wrong. You won’t have all the answers.

**  Never forget the true meaning of value.

**  Understand how you can use numbers to make good business decisions. This is more than understanding how a spreadsheet works - it’s about understanding why each number is useful.

**  Surround yourself with extraordinary people and understand how they think.

**  Knowing yourself can be the difference between success and failure in business.



In this episode of Business Brain Food you will learn:

**  How mindset helped build Jon’s business

**  What value really means

**  Are you born an entrepreneur?

**  How to utilise ad-hoc support

**  How Jon sees mistakes as good thing
