What The Media Tycoon Told Me About Building Success

I had been losing heart recently about something I love doing. Then- at breakfast last week with one of the most powerful media industry leaders in Australia- he said something that gave me the compass point to getting my mojo back. Simple. Powerful. It’s a secret to success.

A colleague asked me to join him at a breakfast meeting in Melbourne with a genuine icon of the Australian media industry. I jumped at it. A long-time friend of our group, this leader had agreed to share his thoughts on how to build long term success in doing business in Indonesia, where the company has a market leading digital capability. He did not disappoint-with wisdom and insights literally flowing off his tongue. But it was this throw-away line that I grabbed and have used to help me get something very close to me back on track. I’ll tell you what it is- what he said- and then explain the story around it.
