As a business leader or entrepreneur, you must dare to articulate your vision, both within your industry and beyond. How do you envision the entrepreneurial world changing?

In the entrepreneurial realm, there’s often an overemphasis on glamour.
Having the courage to ask for help is also essential, says Nijs: ‘You can say, “You are an expert in this. I would love to hear your thoughts or your opinion on this.” When you give people a platform, it strokes their ego, and they often want to assist you further. You can also simply ask for a contact or phone number from someone. People naturally enjoy helping.’”

“Be your own cheerleader,” he laughs. “You have to fully believe in yourself every day, in what you do and what you want to achieve. Give yourself pats on the back and don’t let the opinions of your parents, partner or friends get you down. Without that unwavering belief in yourself, you won’t succeed.”
