Self awareness is everything. The moment I became more self aware, things in my personal life and career improved significantly. At this point in my life if I were giving advice to anyone jumping into a career or starting a business that I received at some point in my life, it would definitely be self awareness. Knowing yourself, your strengths, your weaknesses, your "why?", will serve you well. - JonKnow yourself! I got this form Gary vee. I have not had a mentor or advisor in my life.
Self awareness is very important, because, to be build a sucessful brand, your company has to be a reflection of your values and personality.
Most entrepreneurs want to copy the culture or values of other companies, but they are not in line with them.
If you are a formal guy with the suits and all, your company should reflect that. If you are a casual guy, then dont try to make your company a formal one. Dont build a company by trying to copy others, you will lose.
You have to speak the culture and style of your company because it is a mirror image of you.
But before you can do that, you have to be self aware, you have to know yourself.
