Business Brain Food

This week we are given a fine lesson in teamwork and business success from Ben Lucas. Starting out playing Rugby League for the Cronulla Sharks, Ben went on to build up and sell six seven-figure businesses in the fitness sector, and as if that wasn’t enough he decided to run 40 marathons just for good measure! This guy certainly isn’t messing about, but his secret to success is so brilliantly simple: just keep learning.


See some of Ben’s top tips below:

**  Franchising can help you learn but it can also form a cage that can stop you growing. Be aware of this.

**  Travel the world to make sure you keep learning. Don’t just get bogged down in your day-to-day.

**  Get your business and human values nailed down in your organisation. If you don’t do this properly, you’ll struggle with recruitment.

**  Don’t be afraid to copy other good businesses. What makes them good? Why are they successful?

**  Always have a personal development plan. If you can have a physical exercise plan then surely you should have a plan for your mind?


In this episode of Business Brain Food you will learn:

**  Why-power versus willpower

**  Why Ben jacked-in professional sport in favour of business

**  Successful franchising

**  How Ben keeps innovating

**  The importance of business values to building the right team

**  How a business can help its local community

A final word from Ben on learning: “All the information ever created is in the palm of your hands… you just need to put in the time and effort to learn it!”
